I learned how to make scrambled eggs when I was about 9 or 10 years old and for a long time, it was the only thing I could cook right. I cooked them so well that every time we had scrambled eggs for breakfast, my mother would ask me to make them. To this day they are still my favorite way to have eggs. It’s a simple recipe but my goodness the taste!

How to make scrambled eggs more interesting

Scrambled eggs are super versatile because they are so neutral in taste. You can spice them up with any variety of your favorite spices or herbs.

You can also make the meal more robust by sauteeing veggies or ground sausage and adding your egg mixture to it.

Eggs topped with green onions, fresh cilantro, sour cream, and salsa is one of my favorites!

You can also pair eggs with any neutral starch: rice, potatoes, grits, toast, or even savory oatmeal!
