Repurposed Dinner: Texas Breakfast
Its like chopped up in this business! Just kidding, but I do like going into the fridge in the morning and coming up with various breakfast dishes in order to use up the leftover food. It cuts down on waste and then I can pretend I too am a contestant on Chopped and I'm given these ingredients to make a dish for the starving people of the world. I know... sooooo dramatic. :)
Here we have "Texas Breakfast"...
All of these ingredients were in the refrigerator and/or were leftovers. I first cut holes out of the middle of the each biscuit and put them in a frying pan. Then cracked the eggs in a cup, cut the corn from the stalk and mixed it to make a scramble.
Let that sit and then pour some oil in a different sauce pan and sautee the mushrooms and the onions. While that's cooking down pour in your scramble in the center of the biscuits and press down with your turner in order to have the eggs cook on the bottom so the yolk doesn't run out. Then let it cook for a couple minutes and flip them over to cook the other side.
Stir your onions and mushrooms and then dice up your tomato and green onions to top on your biscuit. Slice up the leftover steak into slivers and you can either have them cold on top or put them in the frying pan for a 30 seconds or so on each side.
If the eggs are looking cooked and ready to go, sprinkle some cheddar cheese over the biscuits and cover with a saucepan top to melt.
Once everything looks like it's ready (cheese melted, and veggies sauteed) then start plating! Put the biscuit on the plate and sprinkle tomatoes and green onions on top. Take two slices of steak and place them on the top as well. Salt and pepper to taste.
Feel free to customize how you want based on your last nights dinner! That's part of the fun! :)

*I like to mix in garlic salt and onion salt with pepper into the egg scramble, but that's just a preference
Sometimes I cook more than grilled cheese sandwiches and microwaved hot dogs.
