Fancy Scrambled Eggs With Goat Cheese and Pancetta

Scrambled eggs are served almost every weekend at my house.  My husband and I are the only ones who eat them.  And while he could eat plain old eggs every weekend.  I like to spruce them up a bit.  Recently I showed off my brunch buffet and these eggs were on the menu.

Scrambled eggs are about as easy to make as pasta.  At least I think so.  And they are packed with protein which is super important in the morning.  You should always start your day with a full belly to fuel you.  But they can get a little boring.  Well, for me they can.  My husband could eat plain scrambled eggs any old day.  So I like to spruce them up with stuff I have in the fridge.  Shopping day is Monday so it can be slim picking by Saturday or Sunday morning.  But I just so happened to have entertained the evening before creating this recipe so I had some pretty good stuff on hand.

First I cooked some diced pancetta that I had left over.  It is Italian bacon but has more salt and less smoky flavor.  I cooked it until crispy and then removed it with a slotted spoon leaving some grease in the pan.  Then I poured in the eggs and a dash of milk that I had whisked together into the pan with the pancetta grease.  I cooked until they just began to scramble.

Now it’s time to really make them fancy.  I had some goat cheese left on hand and I crumbled it into the eggs as I continued to scramble them.  The key to creamy scrambled eggs is not to cook them too quickly.

When the goat cheese was fully incorporated, I added the pancetta back in and I added some chopped chives as well.  I folded it all together and that was that.

It was served with some chopped chives on top as a garnish. They came out so creamy and then you get a little chewy, salty bite of pancetta.  It’s was delicious and elegant.  Fancy scrambled eggs will be served at my house more often.  They were a big hit at brunch!
