I love to sauté onions, mushrooms, spinach, and/or zucchini, then add eggs and cheese to the pan. You can also add fresh or dried herbs to the sauteing vegetables or to the eggs. Leftover roasted/diced/hash-browned potatoes heated in a little butter before adding eggs is good. I also like to add diced, fresh tomatoes after the eggs have been scrambled. May sound a little odd, but onion and chive flavored cream cheese is good added to the eggs and then scrambled; makes a really smooth texture for the eggs.

The quality of the tortilla matters. They make them fresh in the stores here. I like to buy them steaming hot.

I like all kinds of veggies and bacon or sausage in mine. i usually use Parmesan or sharp cheddar for the cheese. Sometimes I just mix them with some salsa. Doesn't set up like regular eggs, but tasty.

There is a restaurant here that puts cilantro in their eggs in addition to whatever veggies and meat. I like the cilantro addition. They serve eggs with avocado slices go on top.

I was also going to say strong cheese. I loved aged gouda, pecorino, parmesan or sharp cheddar. Also, cook up some spanish dry chorizo just long enough to render the fat, then scramble your eggs with the chorizo (and the drippings). Delicious!

Pesto is great (and easy). Also fresh herbs are pretty tasty too.

Also, if you have time, try to make slow scrambled eggs. They taste so creamy and cheesy!

Oh, one more suggestion! Make a spanish tortilla.
The Spanish Tortilla Is the Best of All Omelets

Oh and don't worry about following the recipe too exactly. You can use any potatoes. I like to brown my potatoes in batches, and cook the onions with one of the batches. I know browned potatoes aren't traditional, but I like it so much more! I've added chorizo and different herbs. But even salt, onion, egg, potato is enough to make a tasty dish!

OP: I learned about this in an I-house cooking class.

Scrambled eggs with cheese and salsa! (really good with the store bought mango-peach salsa, otherwise I use fresh homemade salsa) I eat that almost every morning. Yum!

We like salami and provolone in ours. I beat a few eggs, add some milk, some black pepper and whisk in cut up salami and shredded provolone but not the round "deli" type. I use the sharp kind sold in chunks. If you have chiabatta bread--toast it up and slap some butter it...YUM.

When I'm making an omelet, I generally just add cheese. For scrambled eggs, I love Tabasco sauce whisked in.

smoked salmon and dill/chives. But put the smoked salmon in at the last second - you don't want to cook it.

All, I am loving this thread -- thanks so much for all the great replies!

Today I tried a version with spinach, onions, ham, and cheese ... it ended up looking like this:




I loved how it looked and it tasted great too! Very hearty (and I used egg whites today, not eggs, so that's saying something!).

I have heard of this but have never tried it! I will definitely try it some lazy Sunday morning.

Chopped pepperoni, chili powder, cumin and red hot and some Mexican blend/cheddar-jack shredded cheese. Maybe a few jalapenos.
