Now you ask me, scrambled eggs, stunning??? Look at those, aren’t they drop dead gorgeous? Look at that yummy goat cheese topping those perfectly soft eggs with bell peppers and cherry tomatoes with the unmistakable presence of arugula and baby spinach over those butter lathered English muffins… Yes, I say stunning!
But seriously, how many times have you gotten up, started scrambling some eggs and went “Meh… it’s so Boring!! The SAME eggs, day in and day out. How about a stunning make over for this morning staple?
Do you want to get excited for your daily eggs? Read on my friends. Just a few more ingredients and a little extra effort goes a long way to make your eggs absolutely fancy schmancy. And I promise, they not only look gorgeous, they taste oh-so-yum!!
When it comes to eggs, I am the scrambler at the Beisers’. My husband just doesn’t have the patience to keep stirring and turning the eggs. And I don’t mind cooking the eggs, as they are mostly super quick and a great way to start your day. All the nice protein and energy is there to carry you through the first part of the day.
Well tell me, how do you scramble your eggs? Are you just a salt, pepper and cheese person? Maybe a little spinach or mushrooms? Perhaps you add a kick with some chilies?
Today, let’s add some basics, colored peppers and cherry tomatoes. They are a gorgeous alternative to your regular tomatoes, and they taste so good. Then increase the glamour quotient of your eggs a little higher with arugula and goat cheese. THAT’S IT!
You see, just little extra effort and those eggs turn from plain to extra ordinary delish. Don’t believe me? Try it this weekend, and don’t forget those English Muffins. We absolutely love those, especially nicely toasted with dollops of butter.
This is how you scramble your eggs. It’s super easy and quick.
Cut your peppers into small cubes and halve the cherry tomatoes. I have picked up multi colored cherry tomatoes to add more color. Beat your eggs nicely with salt and pepper.
Sauté your peppers in a dollop of butter until they are a little soft and then pour in your nicely beaten eggs. The technique for good scrambled eggs is to cook them over low to medium heat, stirring in circles continuously until to your desired softness. You can add a couple of teaspoons of milk to your eggs to make them extra smooth.
When your eggs are nearly done, add those cherry tomatoes. Add your arugula and spinach at the very end, as you don’t want them too wilted.
Finally, all you need to do is arrange this large heap of this gorgeousness over your perfectly toasted and buttered English muffins. Top it with some goat cheese or feta cheese, please don’t forget that! Serve it with some more freshly cut tomatoes and arugula… and present that dish to anyone to swoon them off the floor! Yes, just a teeny bit more work than your regular every day scrambled eggs. Life is sometimes so easy and wonderful… Have a great day, and be sure to subscribe to GypsyPlate at the top of the page so you never miss a recipe, and show your love by sharing us on Pinterest, Facebook and Yummly!
