Saturday morning, I made my special breakfast. Breakfast in bed for my GF who successfully completed her first session of nursing school.

String beans scramble over crispy potatoes

Here's the recipe.

3 potatoes diced
3 eggs
a handful of string beans
1 diced tomato
3/4 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
1/2 stick of butter
salt pepper
hot sauce

Melt butter in microwave
pour melted butter over diced potatoes and mix thoroughly
throw in a couple pinches of salt and pepper
Spread potatoes evenly in one layer on a baking sheet coated with vegetable oil,
Bake in 400º oven til golden brown turning once (15 minutes)

Sautee string beans in a saucepan with a tsp of vegetable oil, (4 minutes).
Mix eggs in a mixing bowl, add salt and pepper, pour over string beans and scramble til egg is mostly cooked.

Remove egg/string beans from pan. Place golden browned potatoes in skillet or oven safe casserole. Put eggs over potaotes, tomatoes over eggs and sprinkle cheese over everything.

Bake in 350º oven until cheese is melted. Garnish with chopped parsley or chives.
Add a dollup of sour cream and splash some Frank's Red Hot (or Tabasco). Serve.

Feel free to add crispy bacon, sausage, steak, chicken, or other assorted cooked mammals to this recipe to make it edible to us non-vegetarians.
