I grew up eating scrambled eggsquite often and really enjoyed eating them. I usually ate 2 at a time, and sprinkled just a little salt on top and then a dab of ketchup on the side before eating. When we’re young, we tend to think that everyone does things the way we do them so when I grew up and found out that other people made their scrambled eggs differently, I was intrigued. Nowadays, I eat scrambled eggs maybe 3 times a month. I still like to eat them with just a little salt and ketchup, like I did when I was a kid. But now I also like to change it up and little bit by adding a slice of tomato and/or half an avocado. Or maybe I’ll have a little bit of cheese, ham or bacon, or even mushrooms sprinkled on top for a little bit of a different twist. I’m totally open to adding additional ingredients in order to expand my options, so below are some additional healthy ingredients one can add to this delicious breakfast recipe. Be sure to let us know if you have any variations of scrambled eggs that sound great and I can’t wait to give them all a try!
How to Make Scrambled Eggs
Put a small pan on medium heat. Take 2 free-range eggs and crack them into a bowl. Stir briskly with a fork until the egg white and the egg yolk are fully blended. Add any additional ingredients if you like. Place enough butter or oil in the pan so that it fully covers the bottom as you don’t want the eggs to stick. Gently pour the egg mixture into the pan. After a minute or two, take a spatula and gently scrape under the eggs so that the bottom is now on the top, which allows for even cooking. Cook for another minute or two while keeping a close eye on the scrambled eggs as they will now begin to cook faster. Gently move around the eggs until you don’t see any wetness and as soon as you reach this point take the eggs off the heat, as they will continue to cook a little more in the pan and you don’t want to overcook them. Place onto a plate and enjoy! Add-in ingredients: Red Peppers Green Peppers Onions/Green Onions Your Favorite Cheese (just a little!) Your favorite Meat (just a little!)

–When scrambling the eggs, add a tsp of milk to the egg mixture for a little extra richness. Or to make the eggs go a little further, add some firm tofu to the egg mixture. –Adding butter adds lots of flavor, but you can use olive oil, too. Just be sure to stir often. –Of course, you have to have a slice of whole wheat/grain toast to go with your scrambled eggs. Skip the butter and instead use a couple of tbs of your favorite jam, (with no additional sugars added!)
