Eggs with Scallions

Eggs with Scallions will have you rethinking eggs just for breakfast. This anytime meal is as good for breakfast as it is for dinner. The scallions take on a sweetness when cooked, which combined with the savory eggs and cheese make this quick and healthy meal soooo good :)

My Nonno Salvatore, my mothers dad loved these eggs.  The way my nonna made them for him was to sauté scallions then crack a couple eggs on top sunny side up.  If the yolk broke, he would be very upset! I have tried them both ways and prefer the scrambled. Try them for yourself; let me know which one you prefer.

You'll need:

14 or so scallions, washed and cut in half length wise then cut again in half
8 eggs, beaten, salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 heaping teaspoons grated cheese

In a medium skillet sauté scallions in oil for about 3 minutes or until wilted.  Add eggs on top of scallions.  Scramble the eggs and scallions until cooked.

Serves 4

Notes: although 14 scallions may seem a lot, the wilt down substantially

  1. I love scallions in my eggs. In Colombia the typical breakfast is huevos pericos which is scrambled eggs with scallions and tomatoes. Try it next time, it's delicious!
