Scrambled Eggs on Toast

By: Debra Carey

This is simply the easiest breakfast to make that’s full of protein. If you don’t want the toast, you could always slice a tomato or half an avocado and top with scrambled egg. Either way it’s a nutritious and filling breakfast that literally takes no time at all.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Organic eggs tend to have more flavour then battery-hen eggs and give a richer yellow colour. Start by cracking eggs into a small bowl. Add salt, pepper and paprika. Whisk together with a fork until well combined.

Step 2

Toast the bread and spread over some butter or spread. Place on serving plate ready for when the eggs are cooked. Heat the butter in a small frying pan on a low heat. Don’t cook the eggs on heat that is too high as it will cause the eggs to stick to the pan and become too dry.

Step 3

Pour eggs into the pan and cook over a medium heat for 30 seconds to 1 minute depending on how you like your eggs. Less time for creamy eggs, more time for firmer eggs. Use a spoon to gently push the egg mixture, scaping along the base of the pan, folding the eggs as they cook. Once they are cooked to your liking, take off the heat and place on top of the toast.

Sprinkle with a little more paprika and chives, if you have them.
