American Egg Scramble

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped tomato
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped bell pepper
  • 1 or 2 Tablespoon grated Cheddar cheese
This recipe might be better titled Cheesy Scrambled Eggs With Onions, Tomatoes And Peppers. It was submitted to the site with the name 'American Egg Scramble' way back in 2002 by a user named 'cantinanana'. I'm not quite sure what makes this scramble definitively American. I'd be inclined to use American cheese just to justify the name. I can tell you the dish in the pictures is truly American. I made it today using eggs and vegetables from California and cheese from Wisconsin. I can also report that it was delicious! (Recipe tested and photographed: July 2013)

How To Make An American Egg Scramble

Crack eggs into medium bowl and beat well. Using wire whisk, gently stir in the other ingredients. Cook mixture in small skillet over low heat until eggs are as firm as you like. Serve hot.

American Egg Scramble Recipe

Cooking Note From Mr Breakfast:
This recipe works great, but it's even better if you saute the vegetables first. Drizzle a little olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add the vegetables and cook until tender (about 5 minutes) - stirring occasionally. Add that to your cooking eggs as you scramble them and see what you think.

A simple, fresh-tasting scramble with tomatoes, onion, bell pepper and cheese. Works well with most egg substitutes.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank cantinanana for this recipe.

To @Rose: I agree. Cook the vegetables and bacon. If added first as the eggs cook, they cook too fast before the other ingredients. Let them have a chance to braise a bit.

I double everything and it came out great. I also added just a little bit of finely chopped fresh jalapeno for heat which was nice.

Yum. But with a little more cheese. You should also mention to add butter or cooking spray to the pan first.

You use olive oil for this right?

What do you think about cooking the veggies first? That's what I usually do, but I'm going to try your method next time!

Simple recipe with great results. I only used about 1/4 of a medium onion and topped everything at the end with a tablespoon of salsa. Good breakfast.
