This Is How You Make Your Scrambled Eggs Better Every Morning
Being creative with ingredients is the key.
Eggs are usually associated with breakfast. Whether it’s sunny-side up or scrambled into a fluffy cloud, or the “log” in Pinoys' silog meals (fried rice and eggs), breakfast doesn't feel complete without it.
But even the most devoted egg fan can become bored with their everyday egg. That’s where a little creativity can work wonders on a meal. The addition of a simple ingredient or four can transform an egg into a hearty, flavor-packed dish that can stand on its own or serve with your favorite breakfast meats.
Here are 7 ways to upgrade your scrambled eggs from humdrum to “oh yum”:
1 Creamy Scrambled Eggs
A basic preparation of the scrambled eggs is beating the eggs seasoned with salt and pepper but if you’re curious how to make it like they do in the restaurants and hotel buffet spreads, you’ll love that it's easy to recreate at home. A little cream is all you need to boost its texture.
2 Crunchy Tocino with Scrambled Eggs
Make your tocilog better! One way to do this is to coat your tocino in breadcrumbs to give it crunch before exposing the sweet, caramelized pork underneath. But this silog isn’t complete with an egg that complements it: a cheesy scrambled egg that plays with your taste buds with the sweet and salty combination.
3 Longganisa Hash with Tomato Scrambled Eggs
Longganisa is another classic Pinoy breakfast fare but again, one way to make your breakfast different and more flavorful is changing up your eggs. This recipe features the ginisa trio—garlic, onions, and tomatoes—stirred into the scrambled eggs.
4 Shrimp Scramble
Shrimp may not be normal breakfast fare for some, but who says it can’t be? Shrimp is a fast-cooking meat! When it’s been prepared beforehand (shelled and deveined the night before), it’s just a matter of adding to a sizzling hot pan and in this case, stirred into eggs to transform it into a breakfast meal you can enjoy at any time of the day.
5 Scrambled Eggs with Chorizo
Chorizo is a fantastic meat to add to dishes. It’s inherently flavorful, colorful, and easy to use. Fry some chopped chorizo and allow it to flavor and color the oil before pouring in the scrambled eggs. It’s an instant flavor booster!
6 Spanish-Style Scrambled Eggs
It’s not surprising how influential Spain was on our local cuisine, and these eggs are a testament to that influence. This hearty dish of eggs, chorizo de bilbao, chopped ham, tomatoes, peas, and finally, potatoes, is the frittata that you’ll want to be served when the morning finds you craving something filling.
7 Zucchini Pancakes with Salmon and Scrambled Eggs
These savory pancakes are served with a decadent scrambled egg. While the pancakes are the star, the scrambled eggs on the side are just as worthy of notice: smoked salmon is stirred in. If you’re a big fan of smoked salmon, slivers of this prepared fish will be the highlight of the meal.
Scrambled eggs need not be ordinary and with a little imagination and a kitchen full of ingredients to play with, you can make every meal, including a rushed breakfast, a more flavorful and appetizing one.
