SURGEON-GENERAL’S WARNING: THESE GARLIC AND PARMESAN SCRAMBLED EGGS COME WITH SEVERE SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDING HALITOSIS AND A PERSISTENT CRAVING FOR MORE OF THESE SCRAMBLED EGGS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I’M SO SORRY, DAD.
I kid – but only a little.
They’re so worth it.
If you’re looking for a recipe that is preeetty much fool proof, this is the one. And let me tell you, my family has a pretty bad track record on not ruining Mothers’ Day food. So much burnt toast. So. Much. Then there’s the infamous Cake Incident of 2002 that, well… that’s a story for another time.
So we tend to aim low. These are perfect, because they’re easy, impressive, and soooo delicious. AND if you make enough for everyone the bad breath doesn’t matter, because everyone knows if you all have bad breath, no one has bad breath! Right? Give your mother the gift of a vampire-free Mothers’ Day.
It starts out simple. Eggs. A bowl. Crack those mothers and whip ’em with a fork.
Mix your parmesan and your various spicings in a smaller bowl, and then dump ’em right in. Because what’re scrambled eggs without a serious kick?
Toss on some green onion, mix everything all together, and then pour the whole thing into a frying pan. I like to add a little butter first.
Scrambled eggs are the best because you can really just keep stirring and poking at them until they’re cooked. I like mine just on the runny side of done. Mr. Nomato likes his brown, so to each their own (weirdo).
Serve with some (hopefully not burnt) toast and a cup of coffee!
Just be prepared to avoid your mother for the rest of the day, because she’ll not only have bad breath, she’ll really want you to make more of these eggs. I’m so sorry.
And moms, want the day all to yourself? You know what to do 😉
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- dash salt
- 2 1/2 Tbsp parmesan cheese (reggiano and asiago are also delicious)
- 1 green onion , chopped
- OPTIONAL: dash of milk
In a bowl, crack your eggs and whip them with a fork until they are uniform.
In a smaller bowl, mix your garlic powder, pepper, salt and parmesan cheese. Add to the scrambled eggs and mix together. Add the green onion and mix again.
In a pan on the stove, place a small amount of butter and heat on medium heat until melted.
Add the egg mixture.
Stir occasionally until cooked to desired consistency.
