While we enjoy eating eggs for breakfast during the entire year, Christmas Morning Scrambled Eggs are special!
Normally, we just make basic scrambled eggs because we’re busy, on the go, and short on time.
For Christmas Morning though, we plan the ingredients we want to enjoy in our scrambled eggs well in advance.
Today, I’m partnering with Pete and Gerry’s Organic eggs to share with you some of our special Christmas Morning Scrambled Egg Creations!

Scrambled Eggs Cheese, Ham & Tomatoes
When making Scrambled Eggs Cheese, Ham & Tomatoes, I use 3 Pete and Gerry’s Organic eggs, 2 slices of Brown Sugar & Coke Glazed Ham (leftover from Christmas Eve Dinner), 1 tomato – diced, a tablespoon of butter to cook it in, and salt & pepper to taste. You can also add in cheese, if desired.
I melt the butter in the pan, scramble the eggs in a bowl, adding in the remaining ingredients. When the skillet is hot, pour in the egg mixture and cook (I stir with a rubber spatula so I don’t scratch the pan) until desired level of doneness.
Scrambled Eggs with Bacon & Sausage
While basic scrambled eggs are pretty easy and self explanatory to make, there are a few tips and tricks to getting perfectly light and fluffy scrambled eggs consistently.
I enjoy eating other foods with my eggs, just not IN my eggs. So, I serve bacon, sausage, hash browns, etc. plated next to my eggs.
WHISK VS FORK
For 1-4 eggs, crack into a small bowl and use a fork to whip them.
For 4+ eggs, crack them into a larger bowl and scramble with a whisk.
Beat the eggs until all the yolks and whites are totally combined and no globby streaks.
The mixture should be light and airy to give you the softest and fluffiest eggs.
Wait until JUST before you pour the mixture into the skillet to add seasonings such as salt, pepper, spices, etc. so the seasonings don’t draw out too much moisture and make the eggs watery.
MILK, SOUR CREAM, or CREAM CHEESE
If you want the eggs to be creamier, with more body, and depth of flavor, and about 1/4 cup of milk, sour cream, or cream cheese per 4 eggs.
Once your egg mixture is ready to be cooked, preheat your nonstick skillet over medium heat, and add butter.
When the butter foamy (not just slightly melted (too soon) or browning (too late)!), reduce the heat to medium-low and add the egg mixture to the pan.
STIR, STIR, STIR
Make sure you stir often to get the eggs evenly cooked throughout, using a rubber spatula, so you don’t scratch your pan.
The cook time will vary according to size and quantity of the eggs used, and your personal preference for doneness.
Scrambled Eggs Ham & Peppers
One member of our house likes to eat their scrambled eggs with leftover Ham, Cheese, Onions, and Peppers.
When we were out to eat at a Breakfast Restaurant, I saw this combination of ingredients listed on the menu as a Western omelet.
When preparing Scrambled Eggs with Ham & Peppers, I use 3 Pete and Gerry’s Organic eggs, 2 slices of Brown Sugar & Coke Glazed Ham (leftover from Christmas Eve Dinner), 1 small yellow onion – diced, 1 small green bell pepper – diced, 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, a tablespoon of butter to cook it in, and salt & pepper to taste.
I melt the butter in the pan, scramble the eggs in a small bowl, with a fork, adding in the remaining ingredients.
When the skillet is hot, pour in the egg mixture and cook (I stir with a rubber spatula so I don’t scratch the pan) until desired level of doneness.3 ways to make Scrambled Eggs!
