5 Scrambled Eggs & Cream Cheese

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

I find that there are two kinds of people:  Those who love scrambled eggs with cream cheese, and those who go "huh?"  If you like scrambled eggs, and you like cream cheese, you must try them together.  Really, it's one of life's great, simple pleasures.

You'll need:

Butter
Eggs
Cream Cheese
S&P to taste

I told you it was simple!

Melt some butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat.


Meanwhile, crack your eggs into a bowl.  I use 3 for me.


Beat eggs with a a fork and a little salt and pepper.  I usually beat for about 20 seconds.


Next, add a hunk of cream cheese.  If you're like me, you'll add about 1/3 umm...a 1/4 of the package.  Or however much looks good to you.  I mean, if you wanted to add a 1/3, that's fine by me!  Cut it up into smaller chunks and add with your beaten egg.


Now, dump the bowl into your skillet.  I like to let it sit there without stirring for several seconds until the edges start to firm up.


Now, take the flat of a spatula and start smooshing the cream cheese, and of course folding and stirring occasionally.


When the scrambled eggs are creamy, but not runny, they are done.  I hate dry eggs, so I'm really careful not to overcook.  The cream cheese adds this amazing velvety texture.


Plate, sprinkle with some fresh cracked pepper and see if your kids don't come begging for a taste!


The cream cheese adds this really good tangy note, along with the aforementioned velvety, creamy texture.  I also like to add chopped up baked ham to this whenever I make one.  Good.  Eats.
