Unscrambled Eggs


One of the most popular breakfast items is surely scrambled eggs.  My son would have eggs this way every morning if he had the chance.  Unfortunately, there are many breakfast cooks who simply whisk the eggs, drop in the frying pad, toss a couple of times and serve.  Such a shame, as the morning scrambled egg does not need much embellishment to make it into an interesting, as well as wholesome, dish.

Ingredients Serves 4
Large eggs 8
Milk ¼ cup
Salt ½ tspn
Ground black pepper 1/8 tspn
Butter 2 tbspns
Large tomato, chopped 1
Finely chopped shallots 1 tbspn

Cooking Method

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt, and ground black pepper together until well blended.  Melt butter in frying pan over medium-low heat until hot (or if being very health-conscious, use polyunsaturated margarine); pour in egg mixture.  Reduce heat.  As mixture begins to set on bottom and sides of skillet, lift and fold over with spatula.

Cook until eggs are almost set; fold in tomato and shallots.  Heat scrambled eggs through; serve immediately.

(If you wish to give this recipe even more flavor, add chopped green and red capsicum with the tomato and shallots and one teaspoon of chopped coriander leaf as garnish.)
