This is a tasty breakfast/snack item that can be put together in minutes! It was my daughters (Tia) favorite breakfast when she was little. She now makes it for her kids, and enjoys it still.
- 1 -2 tablespoon water
- 3 tablespoons cheese (grated)
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1 -2 piece toast
- butter (optional)
- Put water in hot skillet.
- Add cheese and stir until melted.
- Add beaten egg and'scramble' until creamy and lightly set.
- Spread on warm toast.
Easy to make with wonderful flavor - such good flavor that no salt,pepper or other seasonings are needed. I used Jarlsberg cheese with the egg, and put whole wheat toast on the side. A non-stick skillet is essential. Thank you, Tia, for such a fresh, healthy new way to prepare eggs. I look forward to making this with other cheeses as well!
I've had my eye on this recipe for a few days now, but was really skeptical to try it. But, I gave it a shot this morning. A nonstick pan is ESSENTIAL for this to work. The cheese and water seemed really weird while they were cooking but I kept on going. I added the egg, and started scrambling. As the egg started to set, it seemed weird. And it was bubbling, like cooking cheese! I was starting to wonder if this was going to end up being a flop, all the protein from the eggs and cheese seemed to be squeezing water out. BUT LO! I put the eggs (still kinda.....fluid like) on top of an english muffin I had toasted and buttered, and they began to set up! So a little black pepper goes on top along with a dash or two of Tabasco, and breakfast is served
I just finished the last bite, and though it was good, I'm still not sure if I'm 100% sold on this recipe. The eggs were definitely cheesy (I used Tillamook Cheddar), and I really enjoyed that, but I'm not sure about the texture. They weren't rubbery, but definitely more firm than your typical scrambled egg. I'll have to update once I try them again, perhaps minus the bread, that way I can get a better feel for the texture.
Super easy-really good tasting!! I made a "newbie" mistake of adding the water to a VERY hot skillet and it all boiled out before I could add the cheese! LOL! I figured it out and the results were tasty! Thanks for this recipe!
