Easy Breakfast Scramble Recipe

Check out this easy breakfast scramble recipe, great to freeze for meal prep and a quick breakfast on the go! This easy to customize recipe is great for vegans, vegetarians or meat lovers!

I’ve been making this recipe in variations for years now. It’s great to pull one out when you are hungry for a warm breakfast but don’t have time to cook. Just warm it up in the microwave for a couple minutes, and have a delicious hot meal ready to go!

You can also freeze the scramble mix inside of a flour tortilla, creating a homemade breakfast burrito! Making these instead of eating store bought breakfast burritos helps you control the ingredients, and avoid preservatives and additives found in some frozen burritos in the store.

I encourage you to choose all local and organic ingredients when possible.

You can swap out different peppers or veggies for what’s available seasonally.

Use vegetarian meat replacements instead of regular meat to make it vegetarian.

If you are vegan you could swap out the egg for tofu or other egg replacement, and use a vegan meat replacement and vegan cheese.

Store the scramble in individual size portions in an airtight container to freeze for meal prep (I like to use the 2 cup Pyrex or Anchor glass cups with lids).
