When in doubt for what to fix for dinner, I scramble up some eggs for my entrée. Yep, I think of eggs as an anytime food, not just a breakfast-time fix. Then I top them with whatever I have on hand that I think will taste good together—-or that I don’t want to go to waste. I seriously don’t know if I’ve ever made the exact same version twice. That’s part of the fun! Today, I had a serious amount of fresh mint growing in one of the pots on my balcony; so, I figured I’d create a scramble with middle eastern flair.

The grilled cheese sandwich has been around ever since I’ve been around. Though I always called it “toasted cheese” as a kid.

I make many variations of this breakfast scramble. It’s my go-to recipe idea when in the mood for an egg entrée with plenty of intrigue. This Huevos rancheros-inspired version highlights Udi’s Ancient Grain Crisps. Ancient grains, such as millet and amaranth, have withstood the test of time since they haven’t changed for ages, literally. And they’re key ingredients in the crisps in this dish, which can ultimately help boost your plant-based nutrient intake and satisfaction. This recipe is a fun and tasty way to get your grains. It’s a winner for anyone fond of Mexican cuisine. It’s ideal if you need to follow a gluten-free lifestyle. Plus, it’s a perfect pick when you want a meat-free breakfast (or lunch or...
