When I need to use leftovers, or when it's almost grocery day but I don't want to waste bits and pieces  of stuff I have in the fridge or pantry, I mix and match, add an egg and voila, instant filling meal! Don't worry about making this all fancy like the restaurant style omelettes, ain't nobody got time for that on a Manic Monday! My secret is that I always keep different spices in my pantry and at least 2 kinds of fresh herbs in the fridge to easily add to whatever I'm making. The results are easy, gourmet tasting, fast food without having to resort to fast food. Here are three of my favorites. The instructions for all of them are to fry them all together and add the egg until scrambled. That's it.

1. Seafood Scramble

  • Smoked Clams, 1/4 can.
  • Canned Tuna, 1/2 can
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 eggs
2. Roast Chicken Scramble (aka Leftovers Scramble)
  • Shredded leftover roast chicken, 100 grams
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh sage, rosemary, basil and tarragon, or any combination of these herbs.
  • Roasted tomatoes, 1/4 cup
  • Parmesan Cheese, 1 tbs.
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg white.
3. Veggie Scramble
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 large shitake mushrooms, chopped
  • basil leaves
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Parmesan Cheese, 1 tbs
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg white
