There is nothing better than scrambled eggs and cheese for a hearty breakfast. Everyone likes their eggs cooked firmer, looser, dry or with the “gleam on them.” This was the way my grandfather loved his scrambled eggs and making breakfast for him was such a special time.
Regardless of how you like them fixed, adding Cheese Pleeza makes them even more luxurious and creamy. This works for the everyday breakfast and is flavorful enough for a casual brunch. The Five Star Savory or Hatch Green Chili are the traditional choices for family breakfast.
And hey dads, this simple recipe will make you a hero as the Weekend breakfast chef. Here is the way my friend Chris G. cooks them for his family.
- Crack your eggs into a mixing bowl. Add one tablespoon of water.
- Add 2-3 tablespoons of the cheese spread into bowl and then stir.
- Mix and lightly beat the eggs with the cheese until the chunks are separated and cheese evenly distributed in the mixture. Remember you don’t have to beat the eggs too vigorously as it bruises the yolk. (This is what my Aunt Joan said, and I have no idea if it is true but it seems to make them taste better.)
- Heat the butter into the skillet until it melts but not burning. When the butter is bubbling then the skillet is the right temperature to pour in the eggs.
It is best to use a medium high heat for the skillet.
- Let the bottom layer of eggs cook until you start to see a thin layer form and start to bubble up. Take a spoon or utensil and stir the mixture around so that the cooked portion is moved aside so the rest of the egg mixture can cool.
- When the eggs are almost done, you can always add another spoonful of Cheese Pleeza spread to the top and let it melt before serving.
- Serve and enjoy.
