What is the perfect match for scrambled eggs?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Besides the obvious toast, bacon, sausage and hashbrowns trying to come up with a killer scrambled eggs dish and all I have are the eggs.

A nice slice of rustic bread, like spelt bread for example. No toasting necessary. 

Some pan roasted tomatoes, on the vine (now I'm channeling Gordon Ramsay). 

 

Wait a mn... is this for a breakfast or an appetizer or what?

Crab and cream cheese wontons?  Sardines?

And don't dismiss sausage too quickly - there is more than one kind, shape and style.

Great suggestions - and this could be for anything. Thinking of a complete breakfast or could even be an appetizer. Keep an open mind!

Bagel with cream cheese, red onions & lox.

Sweet breads and brains are both very good and a bit of a long lost pairing.

 

Chives or fresh herbs-de-provance are a bit less of an adventure especially if you can find some foraged mushrooms.

 

Dry cured sausage that is either quickly sauteed or deep fried after being cut into small cubes (brunoise) is another traditional pairingin.  (think bacon crumbles or blood sausage... peasant food.)

 

Crispy shallots, leeks or even kale chips for those adverse to animal proteins.

 

More information will get you more and better responses!

You could make quiche, a frittata, or a caprese-style strata in ramekins, with torn croissants, halved cherry or grape tomatoes, mozzarella & basil.

Herring, usually cold smoked, sometimes hot.  Somewhat like sardines but different.

Traditionally in Scotland, served on wholewheat toast and topped with smoked salmon, although it it also served with the salmon snipped into small pieces and mixed through the soft, creamy, just set eggs.

I'm not sure I understand the question.  Are you looking for a scrambled eggs recipe or side dishes to accompany your scrambled eggs?  

I like to quickly sautee some finely chopped scallions then scramble some eggs into the pan along with a good dose of parmesan.

 

I usually accompany my scrambled eggs with a slice of ham, and sometimes I indulge in some toast with butter too.

 

But very often scrambled eggs are a vehicle for left overs :)  I have a few stalks of asparagus and a bratwurst from last night's dinner.  Those are getting chopped and scrambled today!

 

Hmmm, I wonder if anyone has every combined eggs and mashed potatoes, because I have some potatoes left over, is that a possible fritata?

I am not a fan a scrambled eggs on their own.
I prefer to fry some bacon, add tomato and scramble my eggs into this mixture and when they are almost ready add lots of chives....

I wondered about this so much that I pulled out my leftover mashed spuds and used them in today's breakfast.  Baked eggs with leftover mashed potatoes and asparagus.  http://www.cheftalk.com/t/79562/morning-brunch

Frittatas are simple and tasty...last weekend I made a potato basil frittata and served it with roasted asparagus.

I guess I should reread the original post ;-)  Are the eggs already scrambled?  If you only have eggs, perhaps you could give us a list of what other ingredients you have on hand (pantry, etc.). Are you open to purchasing new ingredients?  I'm confused by the original query. There have been several replies.  Does anything grab you?  Need more info. You could always do a soufflé.

If eggs are scrambled well they can almost stand on their own, but it helps to have sides.  This is probably my favorite scramble recipe -
