The very best part of a weekend for me is breakfast – in bed if at all possible. I have a seriously healthy attitude towards food, but on a Saturday or Sunday I like to indulge. I’m a very lucky lady because Mr Chic makes the best full English in all the land. But when it comes to scrambled eggs – if I say so myself, I absolutely rock!
Being as it’s Easter weekend, and it seems kind of rude not to include some sort of eggy concoction, for breakfast I whipped up these indulgent goat’s cheese scrambled eggs. Seriously scrummy, they only take about 15 minutes to prepare/cook and will have you leaning back in your chair (or against your pillow) with a clean plate and a satisfied sigh. I can almost guarantee that you won’t have room for Easter eggs!
To make enough indulgent goat’s cheese scrambled eggs for two people you will need:
- 6 eggs
- Half a round of goat’s cheese
- A few sprigs of parsley
- Knob of butter
- Pepper (I never add salt to cooking, but a pinch of salt if you desire)
- Olive bread toasted to crispy perfection
I like to eat food from a warm plate (fussy, fussy) so before I start I like to stack two plates where I know they’ll catch the heat from the grill.
Pop a pan on the ring, throw in the knob of butter and heat very gently.
Crack your eggs into a bowl.
Grind in a the pepper and the salt if using. Give them a good old whisk – I’m a bit of a rebel and use a fork, but a whisk is probably the way to go
The trick to creating perfect scrambled eggs is to treat them gently and cook them slowly. So keep stirring but use a delicate touch. In between stirs chop your parsley and roughly cube the goat’s cheese.
Your eggs should be starting to look glossy, but way to wet to serve. Now’s the time to add the cheese and parsley, then pop your toast under the grill. Keep slowly stirring until your eggs are done just the way you like them. Serve with hot buttered toast.
A rather indulgent, extremely tasty, satisfying breakfast. If you do want to lighten the calorie load, then these eggs are perfectly tasty served alone. The toast does make a rather handy scoop though 🙂
If you want to ring the changes, try different herbs, add tomatoes or pull through smoked salmon. Try it this weekend and let me know how it goes.
