Herbs and spices: Feel free to mix in dried or fresh herbs (dried Italian seasoning or fresh chives and basil are my favorites) or spices of choice (garlic powder and smoked or regular paprika complement nicely). A pinch or two of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes are perfect for those who enjoy a hint of heat.
Additional flavorings: Sliced green or black olives, crumbled bacon, thinly sliced and chopped ham, or cooked sausage may be added.
Have leftover roasted vegetables? Simply add to the pan and cook long enough to warm.
Prefer to use egg whites? I recommend using at least two whole eggs and then adding ¼ cup of egg whites for each additional egg.
Optional toppings: I like to top with sliced avocado and/or a sprinkle of halved cherry tomatoes for added flavor and fresh appeal. A spoonful of salsa (green or red) or a drizzle of pesto offer more ways to mix it up.
For a handheld breakfast, you may tuck a wedge into an English muffin, pita, tortilla, or wrap, adding more cheese, hot sauce, salsa, pesto, sriracha mayo, etc. to taste.
