Herb Scrambled Eggs

Since I was a kid, I could always eat eggs anytime of day. They are super versatile, easy to work with, and make an easy meal in less than 10 minutes.

These herb scrambled eggs are made with ingredients you likely already have in your pantry! They are perfectly light, fluffy and loaded with flavor thanks to all of the fresh herbs! I do want to point out that my method for scrambling eggs is a little different than most. Instead of the low and slow rule, I cook at high heat and with fast cooking. I got the idea from Gordon Ramsey and have been making our eggs this way ever since!

Ingredients

  • Eggs: Eggs make for such a healthy breakfast! Filled with healthy nutrients that will help curb your mid-morning cravings, eggs are the cornerstone of any great breakfast.
  • Butter: I use unsalted butter in this recipe because I really like to control how much salt is going into the dish. Fun fact: Salted butter is best for using on finished foods like spreading on bread or adding to pasta, but unsalted butter is great for cooking because you can avoid too much added salt!
  • Parsley: The quintessential garnish, chopped parsley finishes off the dish with a fresh, colorful touch.
  • Thyme: Fresh thyme is an absolute must in this herb scrambled eggs recipe. Not only does it smell amazing, but it really enhances the overall flavor of the dish.
  • Oregano: Did you know that oregano actually has antioxidant and antiviral properties? It tastes great and helps keep you healthy — two reasons to add to your herb mix!
  • Chives: I prefer using chives in this scrambled eggs recipe instead of onions because they are much less pungent and mix in much better with the herbs. You can add the chives in while cooking or garnish the dish before serving.
  • Salt and Pepper: To taste!

How to Make Herb Scrambled Eggs

  1. First things first, add your eggs to a small bowl and whisk vigorously until your eggs have turned into a light yellow, thicker, more foamy liquid. If you don’t have a whisk, a fork works well, too!
  2. Remember not to add your eggs to a cold pan. Heat a small cast iron skillet or saucepan over medium-high heat and add in butter, swirling to coat the pan. When the butter has melted and the pan is the right heat, pour in your eggs.
  3. As soon as your eggs are in the skillet, begin whisking the eggs continuously for about 10-15 seconds. Continue whisking until the eggs look fluffy and cooked, then fold the eggs out onto a plate. If your pan gets too hot, take it off of the heat and continue whisking.
  4. After you’ve plated your eggs, sprinkle with fresh herbs, and salt and pepper to taste.

Upgrade Your Scrambled Eggs

  • Add some veggies! Keep this recipe vegetarian-friendly and load up with your favorite vegetables for a healthy, filling breakfast. Personally, I love to add in quartered cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and a little spinach.
  • Give it a Mexican twist. Where are my avocado and salsa lovers? Spice up your scrambled eggs by adding sliced avocados, your favorite salsa, and a little bit of jalapeño — you’ll definitely get the kick you need to start your day off right!
  • Meat, anyone? You really can’t go wrong with mixing diced ham, strips of bacon, or chunks of your favorite sausage into your herb scrambled eggs.
  • Everything is better with cheese! Cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan — take your pick. Whether you sprinkle a little on top of your eggs or mix it in while cooking, cheese will only make your eggs better.

What to Serve with Herb Scrambled Eggs

  • Homemade English Muffins: Soft and fluffy on the inside and loaded with tons of nooks and crannies. These homemade english muffins make a perfect side dish to serve with these scrambled eggs.
  • Easy Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls. Made with crescent rolls and layered with pumpkin, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice, these cinnamon rolls take less than 30 minutes to make! Rich, thick and perfectly sweet, these pumpkin cinnamon rolls would make a great addition to any breakfast.
  • Homemade Everything Bagels. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a good bagel sandwich. These homemade everything bagels are a lot easier to make than you think and so much better than store-bought, and f you are not a fan of the everything seasoning you can always bake them plain, or with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese + jalapeño. PLUS, the freeze great, too! Whip up a batch and make the egg-bagel sandwich of your dreams.
  • Churro Waffles. If you’re going to have eggs and waffles, why not have waffles that taste like dessert? Soft and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside then sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, these waffles are everything you love about a churro but in waffle form.
