What Started it all:
Eggs, cheese, onions

This Cheesy Onion Scramble is a quick and delightful breakfast or brunch option. The combination of fluffy eggs, melted cheese, and caramelized onions creates a comforting and flavorful dish that's sure to please everyone at the table.


  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite blend)
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs (optional, for garnish)


  1. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the butter or olive oil.
  2. Once the butter is melted or the oil is hot, add the chopped onions. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and caramelized, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. While the onions are cooking, crack the eggs into a large bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, then whisk the eggs until they are well combined and slightly frothy.
  4. Once the onions are caramelized, reduce the heat to low. Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet with the onions. Allow the eggs to cook slowly, gently stirring with a spatula to create soft curds. Continue to cook until the eggs are mostly set but still slightly runny, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the eggs. Gently fold the cheese into the eggs until it is melted and the eggs are fully cooked, about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Remove the skillet from heat and divide the Cheesy Onion Scramble among four plates. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy!

This Cheesy Onion Scramble is a simple yet satisfying dish that makes for a perfect breakfast or brunch. The sweetness of the caramelized onions pairs beautifully with the creamy eggs and melted cheese. Feel free to experiment with different types of cheese or add additional ingredients like bell peppers or spinach to make it your own. Enjoy!
