  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 large eggs

  • 2-3 drops brown food coloring (optional, for added visual appeal)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them until they are fully combined.
  2. If using, add the brown food coloring to the eggs and mix well.
  3. Shred the cheese if not pre-shredded.
  4. In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
  5. Once the butter is fully melted and starts to bubble slightly, pour in the whisked eggs.
  6. Stir continuously with a spatula to scramble the eggs gently. Cook until they are mostly set but still slightly runny.
  7. Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the eggs.
  8. Pour the salsa over the cheese-covered eggs.
  9. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is melted and the eggs are fully cooked to your desired consistency.

  11. Divide the cheesy butter eggs among four plates.
  12. Serve hot, optionally garnished with additional salsa or fresh herbs.
