Scrambled eggs with toast

There is nothing more satisfying for breakfast than some eggs. There are so many ways to prepare eggs; fried eggs, boiled eggs, poached eggs but in this post we will show you how to make scrambled eggs on toast.

Not only is it a very quick and easy meal to throw together, but it sets you up for the day. That, thanks to the great nutritional value of eggs. 

Is scrambled eggs on toast a good breakfast?

You bet it is!

The calorific value of an egg depends on its size, but an average-sized egg might have around 70 to 80 calories. While most of the fat and cholesterol is in the yoke part of the egg, the whites contain more protein than the yoke, meaning an egg is a great protein source.

Although the cholesterol value is relatively high in an egg (one egg contains about 70% of a typical recommended daily intake) it can be a great contribution to a balanced diet. Eating the egg on toast adds some carbohydrate to the meal. And throwing away any excess melted butter will reduce the fat intake.

Eggs are often used as part of a Ketogenic diet as they are a main source of fat and protein.

And remember to use pasteurized eggs.

What goes with scrambled egg on toast?

In these photos we have only shown a basic scrambled egg on toast, but of course, you can always make it more exciting with some other scrambled eggs on toast ideas:

You can add some ham to make ham scrambled eggs. Little bits of fried crispy bacon sprinkled on the top would also be good – what goes better together than bacon and eggs?! A little bit of cheddar cheese mixed in with the eggs – has got to be good – right!? 🙂

Or even some delicious smoked salmon would go extremely well with scrambled eggs on toast. An avocado scrambled egg toast would also go down well!

No pictures here though, so you will have to imagine the alternatives! There are of course very many!

You can also just eat the scrambled eggs on their own and forget the carbs for a great Keto snack!

See what else you can come up with. 

Scrambled eggs without milk

I was always taught at home to whisk a bit of milk into my scrambled eggs. However, I have since found that it is not really necessary, and in fact, you can create the most creamy scrambled eggs just by cooking the eggs themselves.

So having always used a splash of milk when whisking up the eggs, now I just use some salt and pepper to season and add some taste.

If you are cooking for someone else, make sure to ask how they like their eggs. Some people like them well cooked (dry) and others like them a bit wetter. Always best to check beforehand as some people can be fussy about their eggs (I know I am!)

Anyhow, if you have never cooked scrambled eggs, then this is the time to try it.

I use two eggs per person, as I think this is a fair amount to get you set up for the day.

What could be a better way to start the day than with some scrambled eggs on toast? Plenty of protein to keep you going until lunchtime! Ready in 5!

Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs (yes, chicken eggs!)
  • Pinch of salt and black pepper
  • 10g butter
  • 1 slice wholemeal bread

Instructions

  1. First, put the bread in a toaster. Butter the bread when it is toasted.
  2. Whisk the eggs together in a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Melt a bit of butter in a non-stick pan and let it melt. Cover the pan surface with a thin coat of melted butter and then throw away any excess.
  4. Add the whisked eggs to the pan and move them around constantly until the required consistency is reached. I like them a little bit wet, but some people like the eggs further cooked until they are dry (this reminds me of catered school meals though).
  5. Place the eggs on the bread and enjoy!

Notes

You may wish to add some extra pepper, as I have in these photos, for a little bit of zest.
