What’s not to love about scrambled eggs? They’re a quick, nutritious, and delicious meal you can enjoy at any time of the day. But, while scrambled eggs are a breakfast staple, they can get pretty boring if left plain. Luckily, it’s super easy to amp up basic scrambled eggs with just a few extra fresh toppings and spices. Try these 5 easy ways to jazz up your scrambled eggs and take your quick morning brekkie from basic to ‘wow’.
Pesto, basil, sun-dried tomatoes and parmesan
Pesto makes almost any dish sing, but using a generous dollop of pesto in your morning scrambled is just genius. For this recipe you can choose to either swirl your favourite pesto into your eggs as they cook, or drizzle it on top of your cooked scramble before serving. It just depends on how lazy you’re feeling. To make the flavours of your pesto really pop, add a decent amount of freshly chopped basil, some sliced sun-dried tomatoes (or fresh if you prefer), and grated parmesan.
Sour Cream, Chives And Orange Juice
We know what you’re thinking; orange juice in your scrambled eggs sounds pretty weird. But trust us, it really works! Adding just a dash of orange juice to your eggs adds a subtle sweetness to your otherwise straightforward morning eggs. To make this delicious creation, whisk together 5 eggs, 2 tablespoons milk, 2 tablespoons orange juice, 2 tablespoons sour cream, and 1 tablespoon chives before frying in a pan.
Bacon, cheddar and leek
There’s no getting around it; everything tastes better with bacon. If you’re looking for a crazy easy way to spice up your scrambled eggs you simply need to cook your bacon until it’s crispy. Slice leeks and sauté in butter until translucent and beginning to brown. Add your eggs and cook to your preference, then top with crumbled bacon bits and your favourite cheddar cheese.
Avocado and Feta
You know what makes fluffy scrambled eggs even better? Avocado and feta. Sounds simple but, trust us, you’ll be making this deliciously easy combination again and again. The avocado will make your scrambled eggs oh-so-creamy and a bit of crumbled feta adds a salty, tangy flavour that counterbalances the slight sweetness of the avocado just perfectly. To make it, cook your scrambled eggs the way you like them and top with avocado and crumbled feta — easy peasy.
Mushrooms, Fontina cheese and truffle salt
If it’s a real gourmet twist you’re after, you can’t go wrong with this easy recipe. To create a ‘wow’ scrambled eggs simply fry a handful of mushrooms in a pan before adding your eggs to scramble. Once cooked, top with high-quality grated Fontina cheese and a pinch of truffle salt. Voilà!
