Scrambled Eggs Variations
Like vegetables? Why not add some into your scrambled eggs? In the photo above, thinly sliced zucchini has been added with a slice of avocado on the side.
My daughter loves broccoli, so when she makes scrambled eggs, she adds chopped broccoli to hers.
Prefer something spicy? Try adding some chopped bell peppers.
If you like tomatoes, add some of them. Should you love Mexican food, blend in some salsa.
Love mushrooms? Saute some and add them in. Diced ham is another suggestion. If you're a garlic fan, you can add some in as well. Just be careful not to add too much.
Personally, I love to add some sausage to mine. It's like having sausage and eggs all in one dish.

In our household, Velveeta is a hit, so my kids enjoy adding some to their scrambled eggs. The trick is to dice the cheese into small pieces so it melts easily while being cooked.

Good Scrambled Eggs
The trick to having good scrambled eggs is to make sure you add ingredients that you like. If you prefer them plain, then keep them this way. If you have other ingredients that you like, then experiment with them.
I have a friend who loves lobster and adds lobster to her scrambled eggs. Do you like omelets, but aren't comfortable trying to cook one? If this is true, merely add the ingredients of the omelet to your scrambled eggs.
