Skillet Breakfast

There's something about a breakfast recipe with the term "skillet" in the title that evokes warm, fuzzy memories of late, late nights at the Waffle House. You know those nights ... when you're still up at 3 a.m. and you have an intense craving for the world's greasiest hash browns. Those late-night gorging sessions are always followed by a morning of regret.

But this Country Skillet recipe from American Vegan Kitchen leaves nothing to be regretted:

In fact, you can even eat this as the first meal of the day without spending the rest of the morning feeling like a beached whale. It's like a glorified tofu scramble with fried potatoes, Swiss chard, vegan sausage (I chopped up a Tofurkey Beer Brat), and mushrooms.

Perfectly filling with plenty of protein, veggies (even greens!), and carbs (thanks to those taters). I served the skillet scramble with a slice of Rudi's Organics 7 Grain bread spread with Earth Balance and homemade strawberry jam.

Ooooh THAT is what I want for breakfast this morning. I love how you mention how well balanced it is. I bet the combo of sausage, potato, and greens makes this really hearty and filling, but not overly so! Looks YUM!

Oooh that looks fantastic. There's nothing like a hearty breakfast with potatoes... in Germany everyone seems to just want bread for breakfast, and I'm trying to buck the trend...

I wish I could eat breakfast at your place! This looks so comforting - I can't think of ONE restaurant near me that serves anything nearly as good looking as this!

I love making meals like this because you can enjoy the comfort food and not have the stomach ache or regret with it! :)

I just found your blog. I have to say that as a vegan of 12 years with a Kentucky mama, I LOVE finding people who work with collards and butter beans. You've probably already heard of Ann Jackson-- she wrote a cookbook called Heart of the Home. If you haven't seen it yet, get it NOW! I'm excited to be reading your blog!

ahhh. I see you cube your scramble ;) did you ever see the great crumbling versus cubing your tofu poll? It was funny to see people state their cases for their preference.
