Spinach, Mushroom, and Cheddar Scrambled Eggs

I think eggs are the perfect basis for a quick healthy meal.  Easy to pair with other ingredients the options are endless.  Today I made a scramble with fresh ingredients in my fridge.  This recipe is easily adaptable to whatever you have on hand.  Try serving Home Fries alongside it!

Balsamic Mushrooms

I have been neglecting the side dishes on this blog, perhaps because they just seem less glamorous than desserts and dinners.  However, many times the side dish can enhance the overall feel of a meal.  These mushrooms are savory and meaty and pair well with mashed potatoes.  Subtle enough to not over power the main event, yet delicious enough that people will definitely go back for seconds.

Balsamic Mushrooms (serves 6 as a side)

3 cups sliced button mushrooms

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper

Heat olive in a pan over medium/ high heat.  Add the mushrooms.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook until tender.  The mushrooms will turn a nice medium/dark brown.  Add in the vinegar and cook for a couple more minutes until it coats all the mushrooms.  The mushrooms should have a nice snap and crispiness on the edges.

Cheddar, Mushroom, Scallion Pizza

Yet another pizza recipe inspired by my sister. She loves cheddar and mushrooms so this one was a must. We used the Whole Foods multigrain crust again and it was very tasty. This one is a little bit more time consuming than the other tomato pizza because you have to caramelize the onions before putting them on the pizza. But overall, still a very quick, easy process!

Ingredients

4 scallions (finely chopped)

1 cup of cheddar cut into small cubes (more or less depending on how much you want)

12 small mushrooms (finely chopped)

1 onion

Teragon

Salt and Pepper

Directions

Chop the onion in the small pieces. Put the onions a hot pan with some olive oil to caramelize. Cook them until they are golden brown.

Spread out the dough.

Sprinkle the chopped scallions, leaving a 1 inch margin of dough on the outside. (This is so that you can fold it over at the end to have a really thick crust).

Then add the cheddar cubes, the sliced mushrooms, and the caramelized onions.

Sprinkle some teragon on top.

Fold over the edges of the dough for a nice, thick crust.

Cook in the oven for 25 minutes at 400 degrees F.
