Why do Grandma’s scrambled eggs always taste better? You can definitely taste the love in this special breakfast that we are served almost every morning that we stay at the Grandparents’ house. Although she makes it entirely by memory, I just had to get it down on paper. This delicious scramble has colorful veggies, smoky bacon, creamy, melted cheese and a touch of spice!
- olive oil – you can substitute with butter
- bell pepper – mixed colors
- green onions
- bacon (optional)
- cheddar cheese
- cayenne pepper powder – Grandma grows, dries and grinds her own.
- Salt and black pepper
Grandma serves scrambled eggs with pancakes or waffles, hash browns and ham, but you don’t have to go big like Grandma. These are perfect on their own or on toast. Wash it down with some orange julius or milk. If you’re looking for condiments that suit this dish, try our green hot sauce or Filipino banana ketchup.
Scrambled eggs can last up to 4 days in the fridge in an airtight container. If you want to reheat them, pop them in the microwave, a low oven or back in the pan.
