Most low carbers are familiar with eating a lot of eggs as part of their diet! I usually have some hard boiled eggs in the fridge at all times – they are perfect for a quick snack!

I love serving scrambled eggs with smoked salmon as part of a special occasion breakfast – but this recipe is all about CHEESY eggs – which don’t go quite so well with fish in my opinion. 

I used to add cheese to scrambled eggs towards the end of the cooking time, but now I add them right at the start and much prefer it. And there needs to be a LOT of cheese too. So here’s my recipe!

 

How to Make Cheesy Scrambled Eggs

Whisk the eggs together in a bowl with a little heavy cream.

Melt some butter in a non-stick skillet, then add the whisked eggs. Immediately add some shredded cheese over the eggs.
