Scrambled Eggs And Cheese

We started with pasture raised eggs. Once you've had these, you'll never go back!
Scrambled eggs – my go-to comfort food!

Scrambled eggs is one of those dishes that seems to work for any meal. Sometimes you just want that certain comfort that only scrambled eggs can provide. As a child, scrambled eggs were a regular item. Sometimes, if we’d been running around all day, we would have scrambled eggs and toast as our dinner. I like them best with cheese. As does my one sister. So much that she cannot/will not eat them without cheese!

Step 1: Start with pasture-raised eggs from the farmers market. This recipe serves two people. Three eggs is just the right number for us – not too little and not too much. Don’t have pasture-raised eggs? Use regular eggs but consider trying pasture-raised eggs. They are much more flavorful!

Step 3: Grate some cheese. I used about one ounce in this recipe. I love extra sharp cheddar cheese, but any cheese will work – depending on your tastes.

Step 5: Melt the butter over medium heat. I used a cast-iron skillet because it was the perfect size – 8 inches.

Scrambled eggs is a versatile dish. Sometimes I add a dash of cayenne pepper. Or you could add some salsa. Don’t be afraid to experiment with other herbs and spices.
