Need a quick, easy, mouthwatering breakfast or snack? This Spring Scramble on Toast is just the ticket!
Happy SPRING! (Insert me jumping up for joy and doing a crazy Happy Spring dance here).
I get so ridiculously GIDDY when spring rolls around. It’s not like winters are terrible in Portland, although some argue that the grey goes on for days. I just love everything that Spring represents: more color in nature, longer days, more fresh, yummy fruits and veggies in season, pretty patterns everywhere, spring cleaning…
Yesterday, I shared my recipe for Blackberry Ricotta Citrus toast. It’s the perfect breakfast, snack, or appetizer with a touch of spring sweetness to it.
Today, I’m sharing a more savory toast that celebrates one of my fave spring veggies – spring peas! It is super easy to whip together but SO delicious and satisfying.
Pick a Bread, Any Bread
First, I’ve noticed that a lot of toast recipes out there call for fancy bread. Baguettes, pumpernickel, olive bread.
Those are great for party toasts, but let’s get real: I don’t buy those breads on a regular basis. When I make everyday toast, I grab whatever bread we already happen to have on hand, which is usually sliced wheat bread for the kids’ lunches.
Now, we do like a variety of different kinds of sliced wheat breads. This spring scramble toast goes really well with the Franz Bakery Great Hemp Seed bread, which I actually created this recipe for originally (note: this is not a sponsored post; Franz Bakery has been a recipe development and food photography client of mine, separate from the blog). So a heartier sliced bread like that works really well with this kind of toast, which has a heavier topping and savory flavors.
Spring Scramble on Toast
This spring scramble starts with fluffy scrambled eggs, then is topped with a sprinkling of fresh spring peas, chopped mint leaves (which also remind me of spring!), and feta cheese.
Dairy-free option: swap out the regular feta cheese for Daiya’s Monterey Jack or Smoked Gouda block cheese.
A dash of salt and pepper, and you’re ready to dig in to this hearty spring scramble on toast!
It’s amazing how something so simple can be SO satisfying. The saltiness of the feta blends beautifully with the savory fluffy eggs, while the mint brightens up the whole dish.
Enjoy this spring scramble for breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack, a light dinner, or serve it for a weekend brunch with friends.
