Low Carb Recipe
Herbs add a nice taste to eggs in the low carbohydate diet! We offer two variations - one like an omelet, the other scrambled.
Scrambled Herbed Eggs
Fresh herbed eggs should not brown. When eggs form soft, creamy small curds, add herbs; turn onto warm plates and serve immediately.
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pinch freshly ground white or black pepper
1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon, parsley or chives (or a combination)
Melt butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the eggs. Cook 1 minute without stirring.
With a wooden spoon or heat-resistant rubber spatula, gently turn the eggs from bottom to top, scraping around all edges. Eggs should not brown. When eggs form soft, creamy small curds, add herbs; turn onto warm plates and serve immediately.
