Oh how I love Monday holidays. I get up late. I brew some coffee. I eat brunch!
Today, not really having a plan for my meal, I decided to see what I had in my fridge… hmmm, potatoes (leftover from brunch the other day at The Friendly Toast), some cherry tomatoes, onions, eggs, a couple of pieces of prosciutto, some Port Salut cheese… I could work with that. A scramble would be just the thing to start my day (um, afternoon) off right!
I started off by putting the two pieces of prosciutto in the toaster oven and toasting them until they got nice and crispy. As that was cooking, I chopped up the already cooked potatoes and onions, and sauteed them until crisp (along with some salt + pepper). To that, I added some butter + two eggs, and scrambled it all together for about 30 seconds. (While that cooked I quickly chopped up the tomato.)
After the 30 or so seconds, I shut the burner off and threw in the cheese, tomato, and broke the prosciutto into bits over the top and covered the pan.
A minute or two later, when I took the cover off, the cheese had melted thanks to the residual heat, and the tomatoes had warmed through. I mixed it together again and sat down for my super quick, super frugal and super delish brunch.
