I recently bought some queso fresco for my keto Pão de Queijo  – otherwise known as Brazilian Cheese Puffs!

I had quite a lot left over and after some brainstorming I decided to add some to scrambled eggs! I served it with avocado and a splash of hot sauce – which are optional but really complete the dish as far as I am concerned!

How to Make Queso Fresco Scrambled Eggs

Melt some butter in a saucepan over a low-medium heat. Beat some eggs together with a fork.

Add the eggs to the pan and cook slowly, stirring regularly. Meanwhile, crumble some queso fresco (if not already crumbled!).

When the eggs are almost cooked to your liking, add the queso fresco and stir well. Taste for seasoning – the cheese can be quite salty so you may only need black pepper.

Divide the egg onto two serving plates and together with the diced avocado and hot sauce.

The scrambled eggs are really taken to another level – and it is so simple to make! Oh and if you can't buy queso fresco locally, then a mild feta cheese would be an alternative – but it wouldn't be very Mexican!
