Jalapeño-Cheddar Scramble with Hashbrowns

Yatta! (Japanese for “We did it!”) We made it through a year of teaching English! Break time! California, here we come! What do you do the day before leaving for a month long vacation? You play the “clean out the refrigerator” dinner game . In our case, we had a hunk of sharp cheddar, 3 eggs, and 2 medium sized potatoes. What did we end up with? Breakfast for dinner!

I just love jalapeños – on nachos, pizza, hot dogs, in quesadillas, and now in eggs! This is sort of a silly recipe to post on a food blog, but I figured why not. It’ll be our last post from Japan for a month!

We beat 3 eggs in a bowl with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then we scrambled the eggs in a little butter (of course!) and added Jalapeños from a jar. When the eggs were just set, we added grated cheddar until it all turned into a melty goodness. (And if we had had them, I would have added some tortilla chips too!)

For the hash browns, we peeled & grated 2 medium potatoes, heated about 1 1/2 to 2 TBS. of olive oil over medium heat, and fried the potatoes until brown and crispy on both sides. then seasoned with salt & pepper. voilà! Breakfast!

  1. Well done you! Hope you enjoyed your year. 🙂
    Sounds like you play “What’s in my fridge..” better than I do. I always end up going out and buying a wee extra something!

  2. Thanks, Wendy!

    And don’t worry, K&s, we’re just going home for summer break. Then we have one more year left in Japan!
