Leftover Skillet Scramble

I sure hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, filled with lots and lots of food!

This was my first year to ever be away from family during the holidays. It was up to me to provide Christmas dinner for our little family of five. I did a classic family dinner of ham, casserole potatoes {I need to share this recipe with you}, green beans, and rolls. Followed of course by a pumpkin pie.

It turned out perfectly, but having a fridge the size of a small child leftovers are something that can’t stay around for too long. Needless to say, we have been eating ham, casserole potatoes, green beans, and rolls for the past couple days. {the pumpkin pie didn’t make it that long}














Which brings me to what we consumed for breakfast. A nice combination of leftovers all mixed together with eggs and cheese {seriously…who doesn’t love eggs and cheese?}













Here’s what I used: a few pieces of ham, half an onion, two slices of thick bacon, half of a baked potato, some green onions, eggs, and cheese.

{PS- can you tell what I got for Christmas??}













Add about a tsp of oil to a hot skillet and throw in the diced onion, and sliced bacon.













Saute until the onions are translucent and the bacon is cooked.













I peeled the skin from the potato and diced it up.













Dice up a few pieces of ham. Since the ham and potato are already cooked, you wont need to cook them again in the skillet.













Toss them both in the skillet and give it a good toss and let it warm up.













In a separate bowl combine 5 eggs, salt and pepper. Whisk together.













Pour the eggs over the skillet, and add the diced green onions.

{now can you guess what I got for Christmas??}

With a wooden spoon stir slowly to let the eggs cook.













Once the eggs are firmed up, top the skillet with a handful {or two} of shredded cheese. I prefer sharp cheddar, it is bursting with flavor.













Let the cheese melt to it’s ooey gooey perfect-ness.

Top with a little bit of cilantro {if you have it on hand}, maybe a little sour cream? Personally, I am diggin the Jalapeno Tabasco sauce right now. Order up with a tall glass of cold milk.
Good Morning Leftovers!

    Hi, I just came across your blog from The Casserole connection, And I am glad I found you! I see this was posted last Year! LOL… But I had to comment. I have made something similar using hashbrowns and have done it using bulk sausage too… I am so glad I saved it (On Ziplist) So I have your picture and your recipe with my added notes… I am an older lady who is saving recipes for my sons and my grandchildren. This is a good way to show them WHAT it looks like and show them the many ways you can use left overs! Thank you so Much for sharing… And keep on posting as I love to read your funny comments (stories) too! Oh, before I forget, I am at a cross road as I think you received a “Wooden Spoon” (Or a set of them I hope) for Christmas or was it those nice plates? LOL… Wow… I hope whatever it was, You enjoyed it! Thanks again!

      Hi Marta,
      Don’t you just love it when leftovers come together to make an even better meal? The new gift I got was a brand new camera. I know it’s hard to tell, but yes, I’ve enjoyed it so so much over the years. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few
    months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to protect
    against hackers?

    When the principal brought the issues to the mother’s attention and advised the mother that she was concerned the problem came from a lack of
    parental participation in the homework, the mother’s response was to become angry or belligerent.
    After assigning a beneficial interest of a property that belonged to Douglas’s father to a person who
    had been paying taxes in an effort to help the family,
    Doug was unaware that the bank had not executed
    documents making the assignment. These three scenarios above can autonomously alter
    a couple.

    I love getting new recipes & I probably have enough to “paper the White House” if I so desired!!!!! Seriously, I have enough recipes right now that if I were to cook a different one every night, I would never need another another recipe. Thank you for sharing these delicious sounding ones.

    Sometimes staying home for the holidays is a refreshing change. My future mother-in-law brought a giant smoked turkey, and now I'm all turkey'd out. And I'm not halfway through eating it. I love your pictures!
