A Scramble for Eggs
Had I had more time, I think I would have made Bittman's "The Best Scrambled Eggs" but let's just say I was in a scramble when I made these a while ago. Bittman gives a lot of ideas to add to your scrambled eggs on page 793. I decided to make mine with tomato, red bell pepper, spinach, and a topping of mozzarella cheese.
I think I added the spinach in too soon. Not that it was bad in the end, but I think it makes more sense to add them in soon before you're done cooking the eggs so that they retain a certain freshness to them (including nutritional value).
In the end, with a nice cold glass of orange juice and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese, I sure enjoyed my scramble for a breakfast.
