Recipe Notes

  • Don't have chives? Use chopped green onion tops. You could also use 1 teaspoon of dried chives. 
  • This recipe could easily be cut in half for smaller families. 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Crack eggs over a large metal strainer set over a bowl. Whisk until eggs run through into bowl. Add remaining ingredients and whisk together.
  2. Once butter is melted and slightly bubbling, add the eggs. Stir gently with a rubber spatula as eggs start to set. Continue to move eggs around until cooked through. Serve hot.
