Most low carbers are familiar with eating a lot of eggs as part of their diet! I usually have some hard boiled eggs in the fridge at all times – they are perfect for a quick snack!
I love serving scrambled eggs with smoked salmon as part of a special occasion breakfast – but this recipe is all about CHEESY eggs – which don't go quite so well with fish in my opinion.
I used to add cheese to scrambled eggs towards the end of the cooking time, but now I add them right at the start and much prefer it. And there needs to be a LOT of cheese too. So here's my recipe!
How to Make Cheesy Scrambled Eggs
Whisk the eggs together in a bowl with a little heavy cream, salt, and black pepper.
Melt some butter in a non-stick skillet, then add the whisked eggs. Immediately add some shredded cheese over the eggs. I've tried this recipe with cheddar and also a combination of mozzarella and parmesan. The cheddar has a stronger taste but the mozzarella blend was more gooey!
Scramble the eggs by gently pulling them from the outside to the center.
Serve when cooked to your liking!
