Loaded Southwestern Scramble

My family are huge egg lovers and rather than another sunny-side-up egg with a side of toast, I made this scramble with southwestern flavors.

It’s easy, ready in 10 minutes, hearty, and packed with layers of flavors and textures.

Loaded Southwestern Scramble - Don't settle for plain scrambled eggs when you can have these!! Peppers, onions, corn, and more for flavor and texture! Easy, ready in 10 minutes, and healthy!!

Red bell peppers for color and crunch along with juicy corn, green onions, cilantro, and diced MorningStar Farms® White Bean Chili Burgers for extra protein without the fat of ground beef. Regular ground beef contains 15g of fat per serving while these burgers contain 9g total fat per serving. That’s 41% less fat.

The burgers are made with organic ingredients, including cannellini, navy, and pinto beans, tasty green chilies, red peppers, and onions. The ingredients in the MorningStar Farms® White Bean Chili Burgers played perfectly with the southwestern theme I went for.

I served the scramble as brinner but it would work great for breakfast or brunch. With my family, there’s no wrong time of day for eggs.

Yield: serves 3 to 4

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Cook Time: about 5 to 7 minutes

Total Time: about 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened cashewmilk)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup green onions, sliced into thin rounds (from about 4 trimmed green onions)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup red bell peppers, diced small (from about half of one large seeded and trimmed pepper)
  • 3/4 cup corn (I used frozen)
  • MorningStar Farms® White Bean Chili Burgers, thawed and diced into small pieces

Directions:

  1. To a large bowl, add the eggs, milk, and whisk to combine.
  2. Add the green onions, cilantro, salt, pepper, and whisk to combine; set aside.
  3. To a large non-stick skillet, add the olive oil, peppers, corn, burgers, and cook over medium-high heat until vegetables begin to soften and burgers sear, about 3 to 4 minutes; stir intermittently.
  4. Add the egg mixture and stir nearly constantly to scramble the eggs. Cook until done, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately. Scramble is best warm and fresh.

  1. This looks delicious and perfect for any meal! It reminds me of a southwestern omelet but much easier. Jon likes to cook eggs and would probably make this himself if I had some veggies diced and ready.

  2. Egg scrambles used to be my go-to breakfast every.single.day.  (And sometimes dinner, if I’m being honest.)  I usually got lazy and added frozen veggies and salsa, but mexican was always the motif.    This looks delicious!

  3. Can’t go wrong with an egg dish!  :)

  4. I’m  not a huge egg person but when I crave them I want them scrambled and full of goodies just like these!! That burger inside looks SO good, I didn’t even realize it wasn’t meat!

  5. This looks SO yummy! Chocked full of color, flavor and breakfast lovin’- and who doesn’t love a good morning scramble!?

  6. I am going to have to try this real soon and I know I will be singing to the skillet ” give me, give me good loving” as I am cooking this
