Italian Scrambled Eggs on Toast

Next week is British Egg Week (5-11 October), and to mark the occasion I've recreated a classic egg dish, with a twist. Scrambled egg is one of the first things I learnt to cook growing up, and as this was before we had a microwave, it was cooked in a saucepan on the hob. Cooking scrambled eggs on the hob is still my preferred way of cooking it, but as this is also the husband's 'speciality' it's usually cooked in a jug, in the microwave, with little stirring (he says the kids prefer it that way!)

I've jazzed my eggs up with a little Italian touch and served them on a toasted ciabatta roll, instead of the usual sliced white. This recipe can serve 1-2, depending on how hungry you're feeling.

  1. I think people assume everyone can make scrambled eggs but there is definitely an art to it. I adore making mine on the hob but The Viking favours the microwave! He says there's more skill involved!!!! Yours look amazing. I'm getting up now and will have this for brekkie! Thanks for linking to Simply Eggcellent xx

    1. I'm sure my husband would be in agreement with The Viking about the skills needed to make it in the microwave - but we know different, don't we ;-)
