What do scrambled eggs with cream cheese taste like:
Traditional scrambled eggs have more of a hard coating and a soft center. They are chewy and easy to eat if you have a swallowing disorder. Adding cream cheese makes them even softer and melt in your mouth yummy!
Scrambled eggs ingredients:
- Butter - Stick butter; I find stick butter easier to measure to cut
- Eggs - farm fresh eggs or store bought eggs work here
- Cream cheese - adds the creaminess
- Marble jack cheese - Shredding your own makes it easier to melt
How to make the best soft scrambled eggs:
- Fry green peppers - fry any vegetables you plan on using first to get the water contents out
- Whisk with a real whisk- whisk together remaining ingredients. Using a fork is also an option but a whisk beats more air into the eggs making them soft and fluffy.
- Cook eggs - pour eggs into skillet. Allow to sit a few second to allow curds to form. Stir around the skillet to evenly cook the eggs.
Serving suggestions for scrambled eggs with Philadelphia cream cheese:
These cream cheese soft scrambled eggs can be used for so many dishes! My favorite is breakfast burritos. They also taste great by themselves!
- Add meat - you can add any sort of breakfast meat like bacon, ham, sausage, etc to add protein to your eggs! This might affect the texture depending on how crispy the meats are though
- Different cheeses - any sort of cheese pairs well with eggs! Use whatever cheese you have on hand.
- More veggies - if you are looking to add more vegetables, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, etc are great adds to eggs.
- Bigger cream cheese chunks - this recipe is written for small pieces of cream cheese, but you can use bigger pieces if you want a heavier cream cheese flavor.
How to store cream cheese scrambled eggs:
Fridge - I personally do not like eating leftover eggs, but if you wanted to eat the soft scrambled eggs leftovers the next day, you can store them in an air tight container in the fridge. Reheat them in the microwave.
