Breakfast this morning

I'll call this the "Clean out the 'fridge scramble"

Take one leftover baked potato, cut it in to quarters, then slice into 1/8 inch triangles.

Take the Italian peppers and red onions from three takeout salads that no-one wanted and coursely chop them.

Melt a spoonful of bacon grease in the bottom of a skillet and add onions, peppers, and potato.  Saute until potatoes start to brown and the onion softens.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Add leftover chicken meat from burrito night, and continue to turn until the chicken is warmed through.

Beat three whole eggs and add to the hot mess in the skillet.  Cook with frequent stirring until the eggs are done to your liking.

Serve sprinkled with your favorite shredded cheese and hot breakfast beverage.  If you need a little more heat, a little salsa would be wonderful.

Makes enough to feed one adult.  No pictures because it didn't last that long.

Warning:  The steam from sauteing pepperoncini in bacon grease smells wonderful, but the experience of taking a good whiff of it directly from the pan is close to being maced.  However, if you are at all stuffed up, this will give you at least temporary relief.  Have tissues handy.

Sounds delicious.

I went with straight bacon and eggs fried in the same pan.

and eaten out of the same pan...wife's still out of town.

That was my last clean dish.

Sounds like stuff I make all the time. I also use leftovers to make soup for lunch in the same manner.
