Not sure what you meant by "plain oadta"?

What kinds of leftovers have you put in scrambled eggs? That's actually where I got the steak and ham that I mentioned in the OP! I am open to more suggestions.

chorizo sausage or smoke salmon for a treat goes well with the eggs.

I often put mushrooms, onions, green, yellow, and red pepper, sharp cheddar cheese in while cooking.

AFTER they are cooked, I will add slices of avocado (NOT cooked!) and/or salsa.

Wrap all this up in a tortilla!

I will have to try salsa. I did try scrambled eggs in a tortilla awhile ago ... for some reason the tortilla didn't seem to add much to the flavor so I ended up not eating the whole thing. And I say this as someone who loves tortillas! Maybe it was the particular combo of ingredients I had in that batch of scrambled eggs.

Make some Stratta the night before, and throw it in the oven in the morning. Many recipes available online. (Nom, nom, nom)! Try them all.

Otherwise, make some scrambled eggs, put some peanut butter or jelly on a slice of toast, pour yourself a glass of OJ and call it breakfast.

I am trying to eat more protein at breakfast, as opposed to my usual low-fat and fat-free muffins (I typically bake several different kinds and freeze them, but even I get sick of them sometimes!). My go-to breakfast is scrambled eggs or egg whites (or half and half), plus 1-2 slices of toast (I LOVE the blueberry bread that they sell at my local Target) and a banana or other fruit ... plus coffee of course! Anyway, so far I have tried my scrambled eggs with different kinds of cheese (can't really taste the cheese, which surprises me -- we used to get scrambled eggs with cheese for breakfast at I-House in Berkeley and I could always taste the cheese, yum!); bacon bits; tiny pieces of cut-up ham; tiny pieces of cut-up steak; tiny pieces of red onions (was surprised at how much I liked this!); and I think that's all. (Oh, I didn't try these all at the same time, lol!)

I was thinking of trying avocado (love love love it) but I don't know when I would add it?

Oh, for breakfast I'm not too worried about calories as I like to get more of calories/fat early in the day rather than later. Just a habit.

So, what do YOU put in your scrambled eggs? (And FYI, when I start a thread, I am very generous with reps to all helpful replies!! )
I'm guessing the I-House eggs had a lot more salt than you are used to cooking with.

I had never even heard of strata (I think that's how it's spelled ) so I googled it ... many recipes look really good! And of course I like the idea of doing the prep the night before. Thanks!!

That's possible (I usually don't cook with ANY salt), but I'm curious, why would that make the taste of cheese stronger? (And I-House was my dorm, International House, in case anyone thought it was a restaurant like IHOP! )

I love sliced baby portabella mushrooms in my eggs. Also chopped broccoli.

Try combinations of vegetables! There's always chopped spinach, too.

Enjoy!
