I known this may sound like a strange combination to some of you, but its actually pretty tasty. The first time I saw this, my aunt was serving it to us for breakfast one morning. I liked to eat raw peas from the garden, so I didn’t hesitate to try this breakfast dish, and I liked it. Recently, I woke up thinking about peas and eggs, so I whipped up some for breakfast. I had leftover corn tortillas, so that was what I had with them instead of the toast that my aunt had served.
This whole dish comes together quickly. In fact, this one came together so quickly that I didn’t think about posting a blog with the recipe until I was plating the food. That’s why there are no photos of the steps. Of course, being half asleep might have had something to do with it, too. This recipe can easily be modified to include other vegetables like corn, carrots, or mushrooms. Cheese is always a great addition, too.
The instructions tell you to cook the eggs over a low heat. The reason for this is because scrambled eggs are always more fluffy when they are cooked slowly over a low temperature. Almost everyone likes fluffy scrambled eggs.
If you’re wondering what to serve with your peas and eggs, you can serve them with just a side of toast, or a warm tortilla. If you like meat with your eggs, sausage or bacon taste good with the combination of peas and eggs. As for me, I’m looking forward to the leftover Easter ham. This is particularly good when served alongside a slice of leftover ham.
