The French don't usually have scrambled eggs for breakfast, they are definitely an American dish.
But in our house, we like to take the most American dishes and add French or Italian ingredients, to give it that special European flair.
So, Chris whipped this up on a whim last weekend for breakfast for the two of us.
The combination of the ingredients gives it a French flare. The goat cheese makes the eggs extra- creamy.
French Scrambled Eggs
3 organic eggs, scrambled
1 half shallot, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
1/2 inch slice of fresh goat cheese log
good olive oil
salt and pepper
Drizzle about 2 tbsp of olive oil in a non-stick pan. Heat on low-heat. Add shallot and saute until transparent. Add eggs, turn heat up to medium. Sprinkle on thyme. Keep eggs moving in the pan with a wooden spatula until curds form. Remove from heat, crumble goat cheese over eggs. Mix in until melted and combined. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with some toasted banquette slices and French Pressed coffee.
