Herb and Egg Scramble with Garlic Toast and Sliced Tomato

John and I keep a small bottle of truffle oil in the cupboard. We drizzle it on these eggs for an extra-special finish. Try it some time[. The eggs are pretty tasty as-is, too. The recipe easily adjusts, as do the potatoes and the toast in this meal, to feed 1 or more. Enjoy.]

4 servings

  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 4 ounces garlic and herb cheese (such as Boursin or Alouette) or, cream cheese, cut or crumbled into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons chives, chopped -- about 12 blades
  • Salt and black pepper
  • A few drops hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 plum or Roma tomatoes, sliced lengthwise
  • Smoked salmon, sliced ham or salami, chopped -- optional additions for the eggs
  • Toast:
  • 8 slices white, wheat, soft sliced Italian or whole grain bread
  • 2 large cloves garlic, cracked away from skin
  • 4 tablespoons softened salted butter
  • Whisk eggs with cheese and chives and season with salt and pepper and a few drops hot sauce. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add butter or extra-virgin olive oil to the pan. Heat butter or oil, then add eggs. Add the optional addition, if desired, at this point. Scramble to desired consistency and serve with a sliced plum tomato per person, seasoned with salt and pepper, alongside the eggs. Pass garlic toast at table: rub hot toast with cracked garlic, then butter as usual.
