Scrambled Eggs with Green Onions

Sometimes simplicity is best. I love recipes that aren’t overly complicated. Especially now with a new baby that is still demanding the majority of my attention. If I can whip something up in 5 minutes? Perfect.

Enter these scrambled eggs. They are light, fluffy, and the green onions add something special.

What inspired this recipe was a trip to the farmer’s market here in downtown Austin. We wound up spotting these beautiful green onions. They were so fresh, and I knew they would accompany scrambled eggs perfectly. A match made in breakfast heaven.

In this recipe, I cooked some green onions with the eggs, and then topped with a few more. Maximum green onion flavor without being too overpowering.

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp butter (1/2 for toast, ½ for pan)
  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 Tbsp green onions, sliced (with more for garnish, if desired)
  • salt and pepper
  1. Crack the eggs into a small bowl. Add the heavy cream. Whisk together. Add the green onions and stir. Set aside.
  2. Heat a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Add ½ Tbsp butter to the pan.
  3. While waiting for butter to melt, add a piece of toast to the toaster and toast.
  4. Once butter is melted, swish around the pan so that the bottom is covered. Pour the eggs into the pan. With a rubber spatula, stir the eggs. Keep stirring every 30 seconds or so, until eggs are cooked through.
  5. Remove the toast from the toaster and spread ½ Tbsp butter on it. Top with the cooked eggs and any additional green onions. Add salt and pepper to taste.
