Scrambled Eggs With Chives and Asiago

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 0 mins

Threw this together this morning to use up a huge chunk of Asiago cheese and also to help keep my ailing chive plant alive (it was getting overgrown!) This is a GREAT combination--Asiago is a wonderful cheese that's too often overlooked, and of course the combination of chives and eggs is a classic one. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 tablespoons asiago cheese, cut up into tiny chunks (I just do this as I add the cheese to the skillet)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 -3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • butter (For frying, I used nonstick cooking spray) or other fat (For frying, I used nonstick cooking spray)


  1. Beat together eggs, whites, and water.
  2. Heat skillet with your choice of skillet coating (fat or cooking spray) over medium heat.
  3. Add eggs, stirring slowly.
  4. Add chunks of cheese and the chives and keep stirring for about 3-4 more minutes, until at your desired state of doneness/texture.

I made this as directed with the exception of skipping the salt and it turned out quite good the first time. FYI - the second time I used grated asiago that had been frozen and thawed and they weren't as light and fluffy. Thank for posting a quick and easy breakfast!

I have this huge wedge of Asiago that needed some using up, so I surfed Zaar (as I usually do) to find something, and voila! I made this for my lunch and it hit the spot. I used the non stick spray as suggested and nothing stuck to my pan. :)

These eggs were great! I used a different type of mild cheese that I had on hand - and also used the Pam for frying the eggs. Thanks for this tip about using Pam which I never did before and it worked great - actually the eggs came out better than when I use butter! Thanks for sharing this keeper which I will be making often!
