Perfect scrambled eggs

20120115-110718.jpg

These are my family’s favorite scrambled eggs. Fluffy, flavorful, and cheesy: they’re delicious. NOTE: skip the garlic powder and dill if you want basic scrambled eggs.

FLAVORFUL SCRAMBLED EGGS

Ingredients:
12 large eggs (I love organic, cage-free)
1/2 cup cream
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dill
4 oz of sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Directions:
Stir the cream and the eggs together until they are completely blended and pale yellow in color. Add the seasonings, and then pour into a pan over medium heat. Continue stirring constantly. They will thicken, and then begin to set up.

Cook until done. Then, sprinkle the shredded cheddar over the eggs and stir gently until it is melted. Serve.

SOME VARIATION IDEAS

•sauté some chopped onion and garlic, then pour the egg mixture over it.
•add in some spinach
•skip the cream, or use yogurt or cottage cheese instead
•add chopped cooked bacon or ham
•add mushrooms
•skip the garlic powder and dill, and use crushed red pepper, oregano, and some basil

  1. Nicely done, GG! I liked how you presented alternates to this recipe for culinary inspiration. I like to incorporate sausage and tomatoes into my scrambled eggs. And garlic. Oh, and mushrooms.

    Dang it. Now I want eggs.
