Tammy's Review: 

I created this "new" way to eat eggs one morning when my over-easy egg yolks started breaking in the pan. Now I purposely make this recipe for a change every now and then. :) Rated: 9/10


Please see my review at the end of the recipe. Thanks! ~ Tammy


I feel slightly guilty giving eggs, yes eggs, such a high score. A 9-out-of-10 about blows my credability. Before you close the browser window in disgust allow me to quickly plead my case:

1) They are extremely quick to make. If you have children and/or have to get to work early in the morning you know time is sparse--you have to make the best use of the time you have. It may only take a minute or two to crack eggs into a bowl, beat them with a fork, and then dump them in a skillet. But what if you could save those couple minutes? This is what this recipe does: by scrambling the eggs in the skillet you save a little bit of time--and some dishes, which makes your job easier when you go to do dishes. Any shortcut that leaves fewer dishes on the counter is a win in my book! (Yes... I admit it... I ignore sound cooking advice and crack my eggs right into my recipes... shame on me)

2) They are extremely easy to make. Not that scrambled eggs are difficult--but this is even easier.

3) The flavor and texture are excellent. The first concern I had with Tammy's innovative approach to scrambled eggs was texture. I am happy to report the texture is excellent. But what keeps us coming back is the taste. Everyone wants a hot, tasty breakfast that is quick to make. This passes the "fast but good" test with flying colors. Specifically, when diced pastrami is added this recipe takes on a life of its own. We are able to purchase turkey pastrami cheaply at our local deli so this has become a staple breakfast recipe for us.

One last tip: These eggs make an excellent breakfast sandwich. Sandwich the cooked egg-cheese-&-pastrami mixture between two pieces of toast and you have, in my opinion, one of the best breakfasts you could ask for--all under 10 minutes. Serve with a side of tasty mixed fruit and you have yourself a quick and healthy morning breakfast to energize you throughout your day.

While this is a simple recipe it remains one of my favorites. If you are looking for a hot, tasty, and quick-and-easy breakfast recipe give this a try.


Very easy and quick - great breakfast for our expanding family!

I simply used what I had on hand, so it was a bit of leftover sausage that I added to the eggs with some cheese. My children ate every single bite, even Isaac who was very dissapointed we weren't having oatmeal.

I think I may try the baked oatmeal tomorrow morning just for him...

This recipe really does save you time and the texture is nice and fluffy - thanks so much~
