Cheesy Eggs with Pepperoni

Cheesy Eggs with Pepperoni

My kids’ school starts on the later side, so I am able to make them a hot breakfast without having to get up at the crack of dawn. This cheesy eggs with pepperoni dish is a big hit with them, and the protein fills them up! Normally I would put in turkey pepperoni, but I didn’t have any on hand! 

Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 5 min; Cook Time – 10-15 min.

Pepperoni slices

1 T. butter

1/2 cup non-fat or 1% milk

1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Wipe out the inside of the pan. In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add salt and pepper. Melt 1 T. butter in pan. Pour egg mixture into pan. Cook until it’s almost set (about 5-7 minutes), using a rubber spatula to make sure it doesn’t stick to the pan. Add pepperoni and cheese.
