It can be tricky to cook for one when many recipe are for a family of 4-6.  Here is a great recipe for a hearty, fast meal that is just as good for dinner as it is for breakfast. The veggies are flexible - use whatever are your favorites and is in season. Broccoli, spinach, asparagus, peppers and eggplant are all delicious choices.

2.      In a small mixing bowl, beat eggs and milk. Add veggies, cheese and bread and toss to coat.
