P Is for Pizza (as in Leftover)

How often do you find a couple of slices of leftover pizza in the fridge? Probably more than you would care to admit. And quite often, it is enough to make a second meal. However, sometimes you only have enough for a snack, which just won't do when you really want dinner.

Besides, reheated pizza, whether in the microwave or oven, gets boring and predictable after awhile.

There were a couple of leftover slices in our fridge, and I was not in the mood to cook a "from scratch" dinner. But two slices weren't enough for both of us to make a meal. Hmmm. Does one person eat pizza while the other forages? That seems a bit unfair, especially if you're the one who loses the coin toss.

So tonight we had:

ITALIAN MIGAS
Feeds 2














Ingredients
Italian Migas in the pan

2 slices of leftover pizza (it's better if it is more than plain cheese)
6 eggs
1/2 tsp Italian herbs (mix of oregano, marjoram, thyme, rosemary)
1/2 to 3/4 cup grated cheese  your pick
1 tbsp. butter

Instructions

1.  Chop the pizza up into small cubes (1/4 to 1/2 inch)

2.  Mix eggs and herbs thoroughly. Add pizza cubes. Let stand for 30 to 35 minutes. (This is important as the crust needs to soften.)

3.  Heat butter in pan. Add egg mixture and cheese. Cook, stirring frequently, until cooked through.

Serve with fresh fruit or a side salad. We had avocado, kiwi, and pear.

Quick, easy, and pretty tasty.

    1. I know. That's pretty cool, huh? Wasn't sure I'd even get this far.
