Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled Eggs "Dead"

At our house, we ask if you want your scrambled eggs “dead” or “alive.” I know, what a strange thing to ask, but you see . . . some of us like them partially-cooked (by “us” I mean “not me.” I’m a fan of the completely-cooked eggs, myself.) Here’s how to tell if you’ve cooked them dead or alive: alive = glossy, as in they look like glossy photos; dead = matte, as in they look like matte photos. In other words, they lose their shine the more they cook. Let’s just say that mine don’t shine. Haha! How do you like your eggs? Dead or alive?? (Are you thinking of Bon Jovi right now too?)


1 t butter or margarine, per person

2 eggs per person (on average)

2 T cheddar cheese, per person, grated

salt and pepper to taste


Melt butter or margarine in skillet over medium/low heat. Meanwhile, whisk eggs until well-beaten. Stir in cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook in skillet until glossy (if you like them partially-cooked) or matte (if you like them fully-cooked), stirring occasionally.
