A plate of perfectly scrambled eggs is one of my favorite breakfasts. Who am I kidding I eat them for dinner too. When I first came up with this variation, we ate them 3 days in a row for breakfast. They are just so yummy and quick to make, 10 minutes is all you need.
Even though these are really quick, I sometimes do a little prep work the night before while I’m making dinner. Morning is not my best time, so anything I can do ahead is helpful to getting out the door in time.
I like to crack the eggs into a bowl with a lid for overnight storage and toast the pine nuts. If you “measure” out the rest of the ingredients, breakfast comes together in just a few minutes. I say “measure” because after you have made this once, you can pretty much just guess on the spinach, cheese, and pine nuts. No need to dirty measuring cups if you don’t have to.
I made mine in a cast iron pan but I sometimes use nonstick because they are so much easier to use for eggs.
I just have to say, I love a weekend kind of breakfast that is easy enough to make on a weekday as well.Print

These look delicious…just in time, I’ve been getting sick of my normal cheesey morning scramble! Just found your blog from Allison over On Your Marks Get Set…Trot!
We’ve been loving them as well because they have been a change of pace from the norm.
