I love using dinner leftovers in my breakfast. Eggs are good sweet or savory, so whenever I have dinner leftovers, I throw them into a scramble or omelet. I do that a lot and that’s why I never get sick of eggs. Last night, I made crockpot wings, zucchini, and baked potatoes. I’ll post the recipe later today. I used the leftover potatoes in the egg scramble today.
-Whisk together 5 large eggs and 1/4 cup of milk.
-Add the eggs to a greased frying pan on medium heat and scramble.
-Heat potatoes up and add them to the scramble.
-Add about 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, and remove the eggs and potatoes from the heat.
I paired the eggs with 2 slices of whole grain toast and Applegate chicken apple breakfast sausage links. If you haven’t tried the Applegate brand, you’re missing out.
While I was cooking, I had a little entertainment. Grumples was all over diving for tennis balls and bubbles.
He likes to hide the tennis ball in the couch or just sit with it in his mouth for a long time.
Sometimes he likes to see what I’m making on the other side of he counter. I know it’s probably a “bad owner” thing to let him do that, but he’s way too cute to get upset. I’m lucky he doesn’t shed.
He loves when I blow bubbles at him.
It’s crazy how obsessed I am with my dog. I know it’s weird.

And that’s why I love the mornings.
Oh and coffee was also present!
What is your favorite leftover food to throw into your eggs?

Grumples is absolutely adorable! My boyfriend and I have a beagle and rottweiler and I so want another puppy but I will just stick to “awwing” over your pup instead 🙂
We love to put leftover shredded pork in our eggs its soo good
I just made an egg white omelet this morn with spinach and mini peppers 🙂 but i also had some leftover ground turkey from turkey taco night! YUM 🙂 eggs are da bomb! And its totally cool to be obsessed with your dog. But I am a dog owner too…so I understand.

Leftover pizza is a classic example of dinner for breakfast!
I make my own salsa which I guess is more like a pica de gallo but when I have lots of leftovers I mix it into my scrambled eggs and it’s delish with a side of avocado 🙂
Scraping all the toppings off last nights pizza into scrambled eggs or an omelet is perfect! There’s already cheese and seasonings in there!
I’m boring and stick to plain eggs with cheese. I just can’t get myself to accept vegetables as breakfast food. 🙁
Also – I love your couch!! Any tricks on how you keep Grumples from snagging it with his nails?
Natasha @ Under The Sticks says
He is SUCH a cutie!! I’m tempted to try some sort of spaghetti omelette now! 😉
I love your new background by the way!
Taralynn- what is grumples? A golden doodle? I’m looking for a smart, sweet and shed-free dog for my 2 and 3 year old. We also travel a lot with my husband. Grumples seems to be a fit from what I’ve seen on your blog. Anything you can tell me about his breed would be great. Love you site.
This may not be everyone’s cup of tea….but when I have leftover baked salmon from the previous night, I love to break it up into small chunks and add it to my scrambled eggs in the morning. I was hesitant to try it at first but it’s actually delicious!

This looks really good, might have to have breakfast for lunch today! I would love to know what kind of bread you have, and also the recipe for the potatoes!
Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl says
I cannot even stand how cute Grumples is! He makes me miss my doodles back home!
Aine @ AwkwardIrishGirl says
I love putting leftover bacon or smoked salmon in my eggs! And spinach is always a great addition too 😀

I JUST wrote a post about my dogs on my blog. I’m obsessed too, girl!
Grumples is adorable.
How could you not be obsessed with Mr. Grumples?! He is too cute!
Me. Grumples is way to adorable! I love adding kale to my eggs! So good 🙂
It isn’t weird to be obsess with your dog. He is adorable! And he always looks so happy!
I can’t wait for the potatoes recipe! My boyfriend and I love those kind of potatoes! And don’t feel bad, I talk to my dog in a baby voice all day because that’s what he likes. Dogs are spoiled, but worth it.
I LOVE Applegate brand sausage, it is so delicious, it doesn’t have a bunch of added junk, and most of all, it’s nitrite free! Definitely a good find 🙂
I would be dousing that scramble in ketchup! Yummm
