Sneaky Scrambled Eggs

scrambled eggs on plateMy kids thought I was making them regular scrambled eggs for dinner. I decided to add a large yellow tomato and an entire half of a big yellow squash to them. I figured hey, it's all yellow... maybe they won't notice I'm trying to sneak in extra veggies. Cover it all with white cheddar and see what happens.


Do you know that all 4 kids gobbled these up, even asked for seconds, and never once commented or even noticed all the veggies? I kept peeking over at them during dinner, sure one of them would squeal out that I put squash in yet another meal, but they didn't!

Total Time: About 15-20 minutes prep

Yield: 6 servings, easily halved

  1. Slice your squash with a mandolin slicer. That way they will be thin, tender and hard to detect.
  2. cut squash
  3. Slice your tomato thin.
  4. cut tomatoes

  5. Beat eggs, salt, pepper and milk well with a hand mixer.
  6. scrambled eggs
  7. Add all of your ingredients except cheese, to a hot buttered pan and cook until set.
  8. scrambled eggs & veggies in pan
  9. Add cheese and let melt.
  10. cheese added tocooked scramble
  11. Enjoy!

What if you added hotter peppers and avocado or Butter nut I think the combo are endless. You are so clever to cook it with eggs. You should try when you are doing eggs Sunny side up or over easy. Saute some bell peppers and onions , When they begin to caramelize drop your eggs right on top, Let them cook till you like them flip or serve yummy!


Same idea as your kinda but instead of scrambled. Maybe try with bacon if they do not mind googy eggs yet?

This reminds me of the time I offered my 5 year old "pancakes" made with 1/4 cup of pancake flour with 2 beaten eggs. I am all for "nourishment in disguise".

Tomato sauce is also REALYYYYYY good at hiding things! Vegetables my dad claims he can't stand are usually on his spaghetti at any given time!


Tiny pieces are the key, but not pureed, as that takes away some of the fiber benefit. But using puree to thicken sauces is great!
