Chorizo, Spinach, and Yellow Squash Breakfast Scramble

I love egg scrambles for breakfast. Toss in any vegetables, some sausage, eggs, squash and cheese into a skillet.

Chorizo, Spinach, and Summer Squash Breakfast Scramble

Do you ever feel like you need a hearty breakfast?

Today was one of those mornings. My body was craving something healthy, and filling.

Breakfast scrambles are quick to make, and even better, there are no rules! Add any veggies your family will eat. (If you have a picky child, add lots of cheese to mask the vegetable taste.

We just got our organic farm box from Farm Fresh to You yesterday and there were a lot of new vegetables this week. Spring is here and the available vegetables to choose from are getting more and more exciting now.


Yellow summer squash and tomatoes! I knew those had to go into my breakfast scramble. Per my husband, aka Mr. Fearless Dining, the chorizo works beautifully with the yellow summer squash to mask its flavors from squash haters :-).

Another thing I love about breakfast scrambles is that the whole meal cooks in one skillet….only one dish to clean!
