Creamy Scrambled Eggs with Cheese and Chives

  • Level: Easy
  • Yield: 2 servings
  • Total: 10 min
  • Prep: 5 min
  • Cook: 5 min


4 large eggs

1/2 cup whole milk ricotta

1/4 cup minced chives or scallion greens

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon unsalted butter


  1. Whisk the eggs with the ricotta, chives, salt and pepper, to taste, in a bowl until evenly blended.
  2. Melt the butter in a small non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in the egg mixture and gently stir with a rubber spatula for soft, fluffy curds. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the eggs set into a soft creamy curd (if the eggs cook too long the cheese will begin to weep.) Divide the eggs between 2 plates and serve hot.
