Breakfast Recipes for Two

Skillet Scramble


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 medium bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheese (choose your favorite variety)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter for sautéing


  1. Begin by cracking the eggs into a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and beat them lightly with a fork. Set them aside.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil or butter and let it melt and coat the bottom of the skillet.
  3. Add the diced bell pepper and onion to the skillet. Sauté the vegetables until they become soft and the onions are translucent. This usually takes about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour the beaten eggs over the sautéed vegetables in the skillet. Allow the eggs to cook without stirring for a minute or so, until they start to set around the edges.
  5. Gently stir the eggs and vegetables, cooking until the eggs are almost fully set.
  6. Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the top of the egg and vegetable mixture. Cover the skillet and let it sit for a minute or two, just until the cheese is melted.
  7. Once the cheese is melted, remove the skillet from the heat. Your skillet scramble is ready to serve. Enjoy this hearty and nutritious start to your day!
