Take Scrambled Eggs to a New Level

I eat eggs as a part of breakfast at least four days a week. Eggs are a complete food. They have all essential vitamins and minerals in one easy open container. Eggs are also most peoples primary source of sulfur and vitamin E which are important in maintaining good health.

I, like most people eat my eggs one of two ways. I eat my eggs, either over, as in over easy or over medium. I also eat eggs scrambled as in plain scrambled eggs or an omelet.

While the cupboard is usually bare of items that generally make an omelet, there are two old standby ingredients that always taste good in an omelet. And one new addition I have recently discovered. In addition to salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder of course.

Fix up your eggs

A few simple items turn scrambled eggs into something special

The first thing I learned to put on scrambled eggs or an omelet is Grape Jelly. I think this is an Irish things as I learned it from my Grandfather who always had a trace of Irish accent when he spoke.

While grape jelly and eggs do not sound as if they go together, I assure you they go quite well together. A couple of teaspoons of grape jelly on top of scrambled eggs or in the center of a folded omelet, and breakfast goes from good to great. A slice of cheese never hurts if there is some in the refrigerator. Strawberry preserves instead of grape jelly run a close second.

The second good addition to scrambled eggs is a pinch of cinnamon. If you have ever made French Toast, you know how cinnamon adds lots of flavor. When I used to make French Toast for the Kids, and later for the Grand kids, I always cooked up the scrambled egg that was not used for French Toast.

The last and latest addition to take an omelet from good to great is sliced avocado and salsa if there is some. While there is a visual issue for some people having avocado and salsa together in an omelet, the flavors work well together.

If you eat a lot of eggs as I do, and they start to sound boring, be creative and fix them up. You will be surprised at how good you can make your eggs taste.
