Egg Basics - SCRAMBLETTE (Scrambled Omelette)

Timing and temperature setting are vital steps when making an Omelette - however, there is a much easier way: Make a "Scramblette."  It's a scrambled Omelette and the flavor combinations are endless!

Today I made a green pepper, onion, mushroom & parmesan cheese Scramblette but the following are also winning combinations:
- Black olive, spinach & Feta cheese
- pepperoni, tomato, green olive and mozzarella cheese
- small zucchini, onions, fresh cilantro and pepper jack cheese (with a bit of salsa on top)
I could go on and on - be creative and see what combinations you can discover.

1 large bell pepper
1 medium onion
5 to 7 mushrooms
6 eggs
1/4 cup whole milk or cream
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

Step 1:  Begin by preparing the vegetables (peel, chop, rinse, deseed etc)
Step 2:  Crack the eggs into a large bowl & whisk in the milk
Step 3:  Saute the onions & peppers in the olive oil for a couple minutes (over medium heat) - add the mushrooms for about 1 minute more (you may cover the frying pan during this time)
Step 4:  Pour in the whisked egg/milk mixture (see picture below) & add the butter

Step 5:  Gently move the eggs around the pan with a metal flipper (or plastic flipper if you are using a nonstick pan - I only use stainless steel)

Step 6:  You will see the eggs begin to solidify and come together (see picture below) and continue moving the eggs around the pan (still over medium heat) until the liquid has disappeared)

Step 7:  Finally - remove the pan from heat and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top, cover for about 3 or 4 minutes

  1. Oh, these scrambles make the best breakfasts. I just throw whatever is in the fridge in with the eggs and it always turns out great. Your recipe looks wonderful.
