I never liked scrambled eggs before trying this recipe for Grandma Lynne’s Eggs & Onions. Now, I can’t get enough! Bonus points – you only need 3 ingredients (not counting salt & pepper!).
I have never been the biggest fan of eggs. I’m just not. Wait, I take that back. I absolutely love my deviled eggs (which I’ve been told are the best ever many times!) But, if it’s not my deviled eggs… I’m not exactly a fan. However, since I have several hens in my backyard that give me almost a dozen eggs a day… I really need to like eggs a lot better than I do.
Guess what? I found a recipe for scrambled eggs that I really, really love… the only scrambled eggs I’ve ever truly loved and craved. That’s a feet in itself.
The recipe actually comes from the family of my Michael’s oldest & best friend – Eric. It was his grandma’s eggs that she taught his mom to make, and his mom in turn taught him to make. I tried them on a whim & was pretty surprised when I wanted seconds. Wanting seconds of scrambled eggs is something that has never ever happened to me, my friends.
Ever since trying them, this is the only way I will eat scrambled eggs. They are so stupidly simple to make too. All you need is butter, eggs, minced onion, salt, & pepper.
And this is all you do. Saute one small onion with a little bit of butter on medium heat. Cook the onion until translucent.
Scramble 5 eggs in a bowl with a fork. Pour into the hot skillet with the onions.
Cook on medium heat, while stirring & scraping the bottom of the pan occasionally, until the eggs are cooked through. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
You can add cheese too if you like, but they’re delicious just as they are… and this is coming from a self described egg hater!
