Portuguese Scrambled Eggs

READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 4-6


  • 12
    large eggs
  • 2
    large onions, quartered and sliced
  • 3
    cups peeled ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 1
    teaspoon hot sauce (or to taste)
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Add oil to large frying pan, enough to sauté the onions. Heat to medium high heat.
  • Cut the onions in quarters then slice the quarters. Add the onions to hot frying pan and sauté until softened.
  • Peel and dice the tomatoes then add to the softened onions. Cook until tomatoes are tender. (See the 2nd picture).
  • Beat the eggs with the hot sauce, salt and pepper then add to the frying pan, stirring to blend with the tomatoes & onions.
  • Let cook slightly, then gently scramble until eggs are cooked. I like large pieces of egg when I scramble.
  • Note: Serve with potatoes that have been boiled. Slice the unpeeled potatoes into 1/2" slices and boil until tender with 3 whole garlic cloves, salt and hot pepper flakes.
