Do you need a moment to compose yourself? Are you okay? I know what you're going through right now. I used to think I made pretty good eggs. Then, I met Troy. And then Troy invited me to his family's Christmas eve dinner and I tasted his mom's scrambled eggs. And then I realized that my eggs were a huge pile of crap. Thankfully, the woman who eventually became my mother-in-law shared her secret with me. And today? Today, I share with you. The secret ingredient is hers, but the spices are all mine.
Eggs (pastured preferred)- total number is your choice. I do six when I'm making eggs for the three of us
1/8 tsp of dried dill
1/8-1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp dried chives
1 slice of cheddar cheese
Dollop of cream cheese (organic preferred)
Meat if desired (I either do bacon or sliced ham)
Start with a skillet. Heat it empty for about 5 minutes over medium heat (my burners go from 1 to 10. I make eggs on a 6).
While it's heating up, whisk your desired number of egg in a bowl, and add the spices.
Then, and this is the secret, put a dollop of cream cheese in the skillet (about 1 tblsp). Let it sit there for about one minute.
|I know, I know, teflon is a no no. I got a new ceramic cast iron pan for Christmas, but it was back ordered|
when these pictures were taken.
|See how the egg seems to be separating from the pan at the edges? That is what you're looking for.|
