Directions

STEP 1 Whisk eggs with 1 tsp (15 ml) water, and half of the salt & pepper. In a large non stick skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat; pour in egg mixture. Cook, stirring until soft curds start to form, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.

STEP 2 Meanwhile, in separate large non stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute potatoes, onion, green pepper, red pepper until vegetables start to soften, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in paprika, oregano and remaining salt & pepper. Cook until potatoes are golden and heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve scrambled eggs and potato hash.

For added flavour, substitute smoked paprika for paprika.
