Trucks by the Tracks + Breakfast Scramble Recipe


I didn't get any chances to cook over the weekend so by Sunday morning, I was ready to get back in the kitchen. I took ingredients that I had and made it into a Sunday breakfast scramble. 

Sunday Breakfast Scramble
  • 6 small new potatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1/4 white onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese; separated into 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup portions.

  1. Using the big part of the box grater, shred the potatoes into a dishtowel. Then, wring the dish towel out with the shredded potatoes inside in order to squeeze out all extra moisture. 
  2. In a cast iron skillet, evenly distribute the shredded potatoes to cover the bottom of the skillet. Cook over med/high heat for 3 minutes and flip or stir potatoes so the other side can cook. 
  3. While the potatoes are browning, chop the onion and bell pepper. 
  4. Add the chopped onions, bell pepper, salt, and pepper to the skillet and stir. Let cook another 3-5 minutes, checking it frequently.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk 4 eggs together. Then, pour them over the hashbrown mixture. Top the mixture with 1/2 cup of cheese.
  6. Remove the skillet from the stove and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked through and the cheese is melted.
  7. Remove from oven and top with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.

I topped mine with tomatoes and added a side of Spring mix topped with Apple cider vinegar for a more filling boost of fiber. 

After breakfast I went on a solo run and was surprised to see that my timing was perfect! The US women's soccer team was loading the bus so I stopped to join in the crowd cheers. They were in town for the victory tour. I saw Morgan and Abby and the rest of the team walking to the bus with the crowd cheering them on. Needless to say, I felt super motivated to run faster for the rest of my route! This was the best view I got...#shortgirlprobs.

Later that day, JT and I met Kathleen and Mary Lauren at Trucks by the Tracks. We really love Railroad park and are so thankful for the wonderful spot downtown. This weekend marked 5 years for the park in Birmingham. I can remember running there before work and changing in my car when I lived in Jasper. Now, I get to run there every day...and shower at home!

We enjoyed a variety of local food trucks and took in the scenery. 

JT and I shared some Notorious P.I.G. nachos. Mostly because of the name--too clever to pass up. They have nothing on  Big Bad Wolf nachos from our Tuscaloosa Game days, but they were good. 

After some food, we burned some calories with the kids before little "Sally" decided she didn't want to share the hula hoops anymore.

Fine, Sally, we will play corn hole...and you aren't invited.

Kidding, Sally, you can come.

After the games, we needed a boost in the form of a caramel SteelCity Pop. It wasn't my favorite flavor, but it was good. Buttermilk is by far the best. Kathleen and I shared it but didn't get a pic. 

Back at home, JT was hungry just a few hours later so we went with homemade pizza. I made the dough using whole wheat and white flour, water, and yeast. Mine was topped with veggies, JT's was topped with pepperoni. 

And just like that, the weekend was over.
