Goat's cheese and chive scrambled eggs

Okay, before I begin, let’s just mention the elephant in the room: it’s seriously hard to make scrambled eggs look pretty. Forgive me.

Okay? Great.

I don’t tend to make much effort at breakfast time. By the time I roll out of bed, get ready and check my emails, the morning seems to have disappeared and I figure I may as well just wait until lunchtime to make anything. So either breakfast is just skipped altogether (I know, I know, it’s the most important meal of the day), or it consists of a super quick bowl of cereal or a banana. However, when I do force myself to actually cook something, I always really enjoy it. A greasy fry-up isn’t exactly a healthy way to start every single day though, so here’s a slightly healthier version – goat’s cheese and chive scrambled eggs.

I always find that eggs can get a bit samey, so I like to add extra ingredients to make them a bit more interesting. In this version, the chives give a slight oniony taste and the goat’s cheese melts through the eggs to help keep them moist and creamy (I can’t stand rubbery scrambled eggs) – cooking the eggs slowly over a very low heat also helps. Perfect with a slice of toast.

What do you like to eat for breakfast? I like the occasional bowl of porridge, but I’d love some other hot breakfast ideas that can be made in just a few minutes – the sort of thing I can make while still bleary eyed with my hair sticking out at odd angles (moreso than usual anyway). Ideas please!

Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 4 eggs
  • 3tbsp milk
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 10g butter
  • 40g soft goat’s cheese, crumbled
  • 1tbsp fresh chives, chopped
Instructions
  1. Lightly beat the eggs with the milk and season generously.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan, and then turn the heat down quite low. Add the egg mixture, and cook gently for a few minutes. When the mixture begins to solidify, mix it gently with a wooden spoon to scramble. Continue to cook over a low heat for a couple more minutes, stirring continuously, until the egg is nearly cooked (it should be creamy, but not look completely wet and raw).
  3. Add the crumbled goat’s cheese and chopped chives, and more seasoning if desired (taste it first). Cook for 1 minute further, until the cheese has melted and the mixture is fully cooked. Serve immediately.
