Quick and Easy Scrambled Eggs
Serve On Its Own For A Quick Snack Or Light Breakfast
Surely Everyone Can Make Scrambled Eggs?
For years I always cooked scrambled eggs as my late mother had done before me. I whisked eggs with milk adding grated cheese as desired. The only modernization was I moved on to cooking those delicious eggs in a microwave.
Well sorry Mum but I have now ditched your method along with microwave cooking of this egg dish and we are loving the result.

Hints and Tips
- I actually crack the eggs straight into the melted butter whisking as I do so
- I like to add a pinch of fresh parsley as a nod to good health
- You can use margarine or a butter substitute but make sure it is suitable for cooking
- If calories matter use a light version of butter rather than a rich one
- I added a little too much butter today. As I added grated cheese it increased the fat content
- Adjust the butter to taste
- Add a pinch of pepper instead of the salt or as well as
- If you do not add cheese another bonus is an easy to clean pan as cooking the eggs this way prevents them sticking to the pan
- I used store bought grated mild cheddar cheese
These scrambled eggs are a good stand alone dish at breakfast or for a snack.
They are also tasty served on toast if you want a more substantial breakfast.
Replace fried eggs in a full English breakfast with scrambled eggs. It is easy to cook these eggs to perfection unlike fried eggs which can easily go wrong.
Serve with bacon, hash browns and beans adding fried bread or toast if preferred.
Mix it up by experimenting.
For me scrambled eggs cooked this was are the best I have ever tasted.
