Cream Cheese and Scallion Scrambled Eggs

IMG_7578

I love to eat eggs, primarily because they are one of the only foods that are perfectly acceptable to eat at any time of the day. This recipe combines the richness of eggs and cream cheese with savory green onions, which makes for a nice change of pace from your typical scrambled egg preparation. It’s the kind of breakfast that I would want to order if we were eating out, but sometimes it’s easier just to stay at home and make it myself!

I like a stronger onion flavor in this dish, but if you prefer a milder  flavor, switch from scallions to chives. Also, if you prefer, you could certainly add other herbs that you have on hand into your scrambled eggs, i.e. thyme, tarragon, oregano.. just something to change things things up a bit. For a quick grab n go breakfast, I’ve cooked the eggs cooked as described, but served on a toasted whole wheat English muffin (or sprouted multi-grain bread such as Alvarado St Bakery) with a slice of seared canadian bacon. Yummm. I’m feeling inspired to make breakfast for dinner now :) Enjoy!
