Puffball Scramble- Serving Suggestion

You will need:
any other veggies you like- peppers, squash, etc.
butter, oleo, or other fat
frying pan

Cut the puffball into pieces no more than 1/2 inch thick and maybe an inch square- it doesn't matter much as long as they aren't too thick to cook through while the outside browns. Cut up the veggies. This would be really pretty with red pepper, but I didn't have any around. Prepare an egg or two by breaking into a small dish and scrambling with a fork. Add a little milk or water as you prefer

Stir-fry the veggies in hot fat. I think the puffball doesn't have much flavor unless you use a fat with some flavor of its own, such as oleo/butter or bacon fat. Add seasoning. When the vegetables are nearly cooked, add the puffball pieces, as these cook quickly. Continue to toss the mixture until the puffball starts to cook.

Clear a space at the edge of the pan and add the egg. Mix it up as much as you like. You could just fry the egg, if you don't like them scrambled.
