It’s national egg month, and in honor of that I made Cream Cheese Scrambled Eggs for Brunch today. I may be the pickiest egg eater on the planet, aside from eggs that are included in a recipe, I’ll only eat Scrambled Eggs, and I have to be the one to cook them. I like my eggs dry, and in itty bitty pieces. I have tried to eat them out before, but people look at you weird when you order your eggs dry and burnt, and they are just never done enough for me. So, I just cook my own and eat them at home 🙂
To begin, I add my eggs to a bowl.
Add 1/8 cup milk
I have a bit of butter melting in the skillet, over medium heat, then pour in the eggs. Sprinkle them with Salt (preference) and pepper, and just when they start to firm up:
Add the cream cheese. Now, this is where I really veer off from many people. I like my eggs to be in itty bitty pieces, not big chunks. I stir continuously from this point until they are in pieces to ensure they are how I like them. I really want my eggs dry, and to get dry enough, they have to be small pieces. If you like your eggs to be moist, don’t stir.
Using a wooden spoon is nice for stirring the eggs. You don’t want them to stick to the bottom and burn.
This is where I plate the eggs for the kids – they like theirs in bigger pieces and moister than I like mine. I continue cooking mine…
Finally, they are done! This is a saucer sized plate, and probably just one egg in a million pieces – perfection for me 🙂
