California style breakfast

Not really sure if this egg dish is "California style" or not, but that is what my husband called it. I am here in LA visiting my daughter and she spots an egg dish on Pinterest that looks good. We all agreed, but since the only ingredient we had that was in the recipe was eggs, I had to make substitutions for the rest. Funny how adding a few other ingredients and voila a new creation.

The great part of cooking for me is that you can change up any recipe to make it your own. I used to be reluctant to modify a recipe but once you have done it, it gets easier. The worst case scenario is no one likes it and you throw it out. Even Julia Child had some failures, so why not try.

However, this one was no failure . Yummy and healthy at the same time.
Eclectic Red Barn: Eggs with tofu, kale and avocado
I had a package of organic tofu from Trader Joe's that was marinated and baked. I still browned it for a few minutes. (I only used half of the tofu.)
Added 6 scrambled eggs, some Kale and grated Gruyere cheese.

Before serving, I grated some additional Gruyere cheese and added some sliced avocado.

My daughter thought it was the best breakfast ever. I think she just enjoyed the fact that Mom cooked it. 

It is one of those recipes that you could make changes easily. Replace tofu with ham, sausage or bacon. Leave out the Kale and add asparagus or broccoli.  Change the type of cheese. You get the drift. Make it your own!

I will try to put a recipe together.

Ingredients:
4 - 6 eggs depending on the number of people
Milk for the eggs

2. Beat eggs with milk and add to the tofu.
