Scrambled Eggs Deluxe Recipe

Scrambled Eggs Deluxe Good For People Who Don't Like Eggs

Do you or someone you know find eggs a bit bland and boring? Growing up, I never cared for eggs, either, but learning to experiment with eggs, and add things to the eggs, was surprised to find out that I actually did like eggs! I just happen to like mine with a bit of a kick! So, if you are not a real egg lover, try this recipe just once, and see if it might turn you into an egg lover, too!

The following recipe is great for giving your eggs more crunch, more flavour, and most importantly, more nutrients!

These aren't your boring eggs!

Variations

I will warn you that this recipe is high in fat. The eggs, combined with cheese, make for a large percentage of the calories coming from fat. I made this with 1% milk and regular cheddar cheese. Here are some suggestions for varying the recipe, including a way to cut down on fat and calories. Enjoy!

  1. Add very small pieces of cauliflower to the mix, cooking with the onions and celery.
  2. Add small chunks of ham or bacon. Cook meat first before adding to the mixture.
  3. Change the cheese to low-fat cheese and decrease the cheese. To really save fat calories, omit the cheese altogether.


Serve it with toast and turkey bacon

Wow! This recipe looks out of this world! Scrambled egg deluxe is going on my weekend menu without a doubt. Our chickens are laying so many eggs I need to find some new ways to work them into our meals. This vegetable rich egg recipe has brought on hunger pains! I really like your suggestion to add peppers in addition to the mushrooms--maybe a splash of Tapatio? Can't wait to try this. Thank you for a yummy "new egg meal idea".

K9 Hub Hugs~

Key9, thank you so much for your kind words, and I hope this helps you out with your chickens! I hope you and yours enjoy the meal. Yes, the peppers really add a zing, and give a nice colour, too. Take care!

Next time I cook eggs, I am going to try this. Usually, if I put veggies in scrambled eggs, the eggs started out as an omelet but ends up scrambled eggs with veggies.


prairieprincess profile image

prairieprincess 5 years ago from Canada Author

Tammy, I hope you like it. I know what you mean about the omelets. I've tried them, too, but always seem to end with scrambled eggs, so why not just roll with it?

Sounds great! I do a lot of different kinds of egg recipes,too. I would really like to have my own chickens for even better eggs! Voted up & useful! :)

Thanks, Suzanne. I appreciate your comment. Ha ha! Yes, chickens might be good ... I guess! haha! When we used to visit my Grandpa, who was a retired farmer, he often bought KFC, and would tell us that he had just caught that chicken this very afternoon, for dinner. It was kind of funny. I hope you enjoy the recipe! Take care.

Great recipe. I would even add fresh, diced tomatoes. To me, the more veggies, the better and you're right- eggs go very well with a variety of veggies.


prairieprincess profile image

prairieprincess 5 years ago from Canada Author

@Hey Ken, they are so healthy, and easy to make, too. I hope you enjoy these eggs. Thanks for the great comment!

@Hi HB Nurse. Yes, the tomatoes would be nice, too, in there! They would actually add some moisture to the recipe, which would be nice, too. Thanks for the comment.

I think I will have to try this prairieprincess. All the ingredients sound good, and yes, I agree, the humble egg does need spicing up just a little.

Most importantly, this is a recipe even I can follow without ending up with a lump of congealed goo stuck to the bottom of a pan. Leastways, I think I can. I'll let you know!


prairieprincess profile image

prairieprincess 5 years ago from Canada Author

Greensleeves, yes, let me know how it turns out for you! I find it much tastier than just plain eggs. Thanks for stopping by!

That recipe is very similar to how my husband likes to make eggs. Yummy! I like to add salsa to my scrambled eggs to make them tastey. Thanks for sharing! :)

@PM, salsa is great on eggs, too! It definitely spices them up quite a bit. Thanks for the comment!

@Maria, that's great! This might be a new way you can try your eggs. Thanks for stopping by!

Great recipe - I came here after your weight loss hub :o). I sometimes do scrambled eggs with roasted tomatoes - yummy but I love your recipe with peppers and celery and onions, all great additions. I am keeping off the cheese for the moment though :o(


prairieprincess profile image

prairieprincess 4 years ago from Canada Author

Jools, I agree with you about the cheese. That is not the best idea of weight loss; I put in on there to please my husband and then I am free to skip the cheese myself.

My mouth is watering over these gorgeous photos. Eggs are one of my all time favorite go-to meals anytime, even for dinner. Your recipe looks and sounds incredibly delicious. I love eggs! And the extra veggies and ingredients you have included make this a complete and satisfying meal. Yum.

wow, you used up 10 eggs? My hubby would yell at me when I used 3 eggs!


prairieprincess profile image

prairieprincess 2 years ago from Canada Author

Hey, PP, those are my initials, too! That's funny about your husband yelling at you for using ten eggs. I guess it does sound kind of excessive, doesn't it? But my husband just loves eggs so much that he would never yell at me for that! Have a wonderful day! :)
