Is there any smell more mouth watering then sauteed onions in butter? .... Mmmmmm. Now take those little guys a bit farther and caramelize them. Caramelized onions stirred into cheesy eggs.... ok, now this is crazy good! If you are an onion lover like me, then you will go crazy for this egg scramble! The slow cooking of the onions adds such a lovely sweetness to the eggs, making them completely addictive. This isn't just for breakfast! I feel like the time and love it takes to caramelize onions, also makes this special enough for a perfect "Breakfast for Dinner".
Caramelized Onion Egg Scramble
4 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 small onion, diced
1 green onion, sliced
2 slices Sharp American Cheese, torn up
salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
2 parsley sprigs, chopped for garnish
In a medium sized nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the diced onions and a pinch of salt. Sauté until just beginning to turn brown. Turn down heat to low and allow the onions to continue to caramelize, stirring occasionally.
Wisk the eggs and milk together for two minutes, until frothy and even colored. Turn the heat up to medium low, add eggs to skillet. Do not scramble right away. Just as they are beginning to set, using a spatula or a flat wooden spoon, push eggs toward center while tilting skillet to distribute the runny parts. When eggs are almost done, add the green onions and sharp American cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the cheese is melted. Garnish with parsley. Serve with toast points and if you are like me, a little hot sauce to spice things up!
