Easy Back to School Recipes | The Mom 100 Cookbook #Sunday Supper

It's that time again!  Gearing up to get back to school!  My boys are grown and their school days are over.  No more backpacks, lunch boxes and trying to wake them up in the morning! Still when I see the little ones waiting for the school bus, it sure brings back wonderful memories.  Always taking a picture on the first day of school.

For those moms who still have school age children, Katie Workman The Mom 100 Cookbook is joining us again this Sunday for some great suggestions and recipes to start out the school year smoothly. 

Breakfast - the most important meal of the day.

Scrambled Eggs with Herb Croutons

2 slices of multi-grain bread cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, lightly smashed
1 sprig fresh thyme
1 tsp. fresh rosemary, minced
Salt and Pepper
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
5 large eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp. snipped fresh chives

In a medium bowl, toss the bread cubes with the olive oil, garlic and herbs.  Transfer to a large nonstick skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring, until the bread is crisp and browned, about 10 minutes.  Transfer the croutons to a plate and discard the garlic.  Season with salt and pepper.

Wipe out the skillet and melt the butter in it.  Season the eggs with salt and pepper and add them to the skillet.  Cook over moderate heat, stirring gently until the eggs are partially set, about 2 minutes.  Add the croutons and chives and gently fold them in, cooking the eggs about 1 minute longer.  Serve immediately.

Of course, if you follow Katie's rules.....their are no rules.  Add fresh tomatoes, cheese, or salsa to this delicious breakfast.  No need for toast!  Switch out the herbs to whatever you and your children like!
