How To Make Awesome Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are an awesome go-to breakfast, whether you’re short on time & need to whip up something fast for the family or want to pamper yourself with a brunch-like breakfast on a weekend morning. They’re so simple & versatile, one might say making scrambled eggs for breakfast is an egg-celent idea. (giggle Okay, dad joke done! Let’s move on with the groaning now!)

I like to add tomatoes & garlic and a whole lot of herbs (fresh or dried either work) and if I’m feeling fancy…I’ll even add cheese. Ever since going gluten & dairy free, I have seriously missed cheese. So I will refrain from talking about the greatness of Parmesan, Mozzarella & Gouda…you can say it’s left me feeling rather scrambled.  If you are looking for a good cheese for scrambled eggs, can’t go wrong with any of these fellas, but I really like to shred a bit of Manchego on this combo. I can promise you’ll find serious food Mojo with that combo.

These scrambled eggs are:
healthy
loaded with protein
savory with herbs
super delicious with garlicky tomato goodness
Oh, and it takes only 15 minutes to make

Now that’s egg-stravagant! I feel that’s enough material for dad jokes.

How To Make Awesome Scrambled Eggs

Ingredients

  • 4-5 eggs
  • 1/2 tomato, chopped
  • 1 large pod of garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. basil (dried or fresh)
  • 1/4 tsp. All Purpose Seasoning, here's what I use
  • 1/4 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 4 curry leaves, torn to small pieces (optional)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cheese, your choice (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. butter (vegan butter for dairy free version)

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, crack the eggs. Add all the spices and salt, pepper. Whisk together to make a smooth batter.
  2. Heat the butter on a non stick pan. When melted, pour the egg batter. Let it settle for 1-2 minutes. Fold the edges of egg mixture to the center of the pan, while it's semi-cooked. If you let it cook completely, you'll get an omlette! (something i've done accidently done many times! And then tried to tell my nephews they were "scrambled". Not fun when 5 year olds call you on your BS.)
  3. Continue folding & mixing the egg mixture for another 4 minutes, till the mixture looks fluffy & cooked. Add cheese and remove from heat. Voila, breakfast mojo!

Notes

Gluten-free, Vegetarian. For Dairy-Free version, leave out cheese & use vegan butter.
