Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese and Grilled Vegetables
- 5 eggs (cage-free & local, if you can get ‘em)
- 2 – 3 oz. of goat cheese, crumbled
- Half of a zucchini, cut thinly into half-moons
- Half a large red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
- ½ cup of thinly sliced onion
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- A few slices of crusty bread
Light a grill.
Beat eggs in a bowl with some salt and pepper. Toss the vegetables in a different bowl with a tablespoon or two of olive oil, salt, and pepper. When grill is sufficiently not (but not too hot), add vegetables. A grill plate or even some foil is advisable.
When vegetables are beginning to get tender, put a tablespoon of butter in a medium pan, over medium heat. Add eggs.
When vegetables are close to tender, add bread to grill. Cook on either side for 30 seconds to a minute. Remove vegetables from grill when they are tender, but careful not to overcook them. Onions should be nicely caramelized, hopefully with a few crispy ones.
Cook eggs until slightly more than set. Add a big scoop of eggs on top of a piece of toast, sprinkle on some goat cheese, and top each with a healthy portion of the vegetables. If you feel like it, drizzle a few drops of balsamic vinegar over top.
