A few weeks ago, my Mom and I had an amazing girls weekend in Chicago – the purpose of the trip was wedding dress shopping – but we obviously managed to squeeze in a lot of good food. Priorities people!!

I took her to my favorite little juice bar for green juices (lemon, pear, parsley and cucumber was our favorite) and then we headed to Corner Bakery & Cafe to get something a little more substantial. (Shopping = hard work) We split the Anaheim Scrambler breakfast and it was so good that we had the exact same breakfast the next day: green juice + anaheim scramble. I knew I had to make it at home and I knew that the Taster would love it as much as we did. Healthy fats, lots of protein and whole grain bread. Now that’s what I call substance.

Anaheim Scramble - 2 servings

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 slices bacon, chopped*
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced

Scramble eggs and milk in small bowl. Season with salt & pepper.

Add bacon to small pan and heat until browned. Add green onions, heat for about a minute and remove from heat.

Heat large pan over medium-low heat. Spray with cooking spray and add egg mixture, stirring slowly. When eggs start setting, add bacon and green onion mixture and tomatoes. Stir to combine and remove from heat once eggs are cooked through.

Serve with avocado slices and toast.

    That is too funny! The Corner Bakery and Cafe was my favorite place to visit in Chicago! My husband and I went there almost every day for some meal, even with all those options around. I too enjoyed the Anaheim scramble! :)

    Glad you had a fun weekend with your Mom in Chicago! I’m one of those girls who can’t wait for the day to come when I’m able to go wedding dress shopping!

    What a fun trip and great food! I love Corner Bakery, but can only go there when we travel. None here. :( This breakfast sounds so good. I’m such a fan of avocado.
