When I can start my day with some super foods, that's a good thing. Some super foods thrown into a non-recipe with as many variations as I have in the fridge? Even better. Growing some of the super foods on our own? The best!
1 teaspoon butter or bacon grease
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup fresh spinach
1/4 cup cooked "breakfast meat" (sausage, bacon, pepperoni)
1/4 cup shredded cheese (mozzerella with pepperoni, cheddar with sausage or bacon)
splash of milk
salt and pepper
Heat skillet to medium. Melt butter or grease. Saute chopped onions and mushrooms. Add spinach. Stir until wilted.
Crack eggs in a bowl. Add milk and beat until fluffy. Pour over skillet veggies. Do not stir.
Allow eggs to set. Shake to loosen, then flip with a large spatula. Add cheese, meat, and more cheese. Flip the "empty" eggs over the top of the filling. Remove from the skillet to a plate to cool.
Serve hot with your favorite fresh fruit.
My kids are pretty good eaters, and Miss 1 will fight me for bites of spinach in this omelet, but growing it ourselves brings all veggie eating to a whole new level. I'm ready for our Gro-ables to be ready for harvest! (They're not, because somebody's mother is a procrastinator and planted them way late. And somebody's little helper dumped one of the pods during planting.Oops!)
Picture me capturing the precious little one helping, and then picture me yelling "no, No, NO!" as she dumps the pot and pod all over the ground. Lovely.
We've got spinach, peppers, and cilantro in our little Gro-ables garden now (one with random seeds now spewed throughout), and our neighbor has recently tilled our shared garden. I don't want to get overly ambitious this year considering I'll be 9 months pregnant and birthing a baby during the heat of garden season, but Oh, what I would do for a fresh garden tomato!
If you are new to gardening, short on time, or have small children who want to help, definitely consider Gro-ables to get your garden started.
