Breakfast

Cheesy Herbed Eggs

So who doesn’t like eggs for breakfast?

Not only is this a delicious breakfast, it’s also a great way to feed a larger group easily and not spend your morning in the kitchen

So this recipe has a funny story behind it

My brother in law was staying over at my house and was talking about having breakfast on a recent trip to France


He was asked by the waiter “Would you like herbs or cheese in your eggs?”

To which he replied “Both”

The waiter then informed him “Sorry……it is herbs or cheese.”

Wait……what????

Ha ha ha ha ha

So of course the next day I had to make him Cheesy Herbed Eggs!

I’m starting off with a dozen eggs and 1/3 cup of milk or cream

I’m going to add these to our Ninja blender

You can also just whisk them vigorously

Blend these up

Next we will need 1/2 teaspoon each of kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder

Now for some herbs

 You can really use whatever you like here

I went for about a 1/4 cup of fresh chopped parsley and roughly 5 fresh chopped basil leaves

Add the seasonings and herbs to the eggs

Fold them together

Next up is the cheese

We are using 8 ounces of grated extra sharp cheddar

You can really experiment here with whatever cheese you prefer

Fold the cheese gently into the eggs

Heat a pan coated with cooking spray over medium heat and pour in the egg mixture

Cook them slowly and gently moving them around with a rubber spatula

There is a lot of back and forth in the cooking world on whether scrambled eggs should be slightly runny or firm

I prefer them a bit firm but I will let you decide that for yourself

Serve up these Cheesy Herbed Eggs with your favorite breakfast sides and dig in!

  1. I love your choice of egg in this dish! They sound so yummy. I’m more in the Ottolenghi camp – he makes “wet” eggs. I dont like them dry!
