Tomato and Basil Scrambled Eggs Recipe

Breakfast is my favorite. Usually I don't eat it at breakfast time, but lunch or dinner instead. This recipe is such an easy way to dress up scrambled eggs. I just love the whole tomato and basil flavor combo, so what better than to add it with eggs? It's even better this time of the year with all of the garden fresh tomatoes! They are favorite thing about summer! Enjoy!

Tomato and Basil Scrambled Eggs (print recipe)

What you need:
2 tablespoons finely sliced onion
6 eggs
6 large fresh basil leaves, minced
10 grape tomatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
salt and pepper, if desired
bacon grease or butter

In a large frying pan, saute onions in bacon grease on medium heat for about 1 minute. Add eggs, basil, salt and pepper, cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring to scramble. Add tomatoes and cheese, stir and remove from heat when eggs cooked through.
