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

Egg whites or regular eggs with turkey or ham. You could add fresh spinach, onions, black olives. Tobassco sauce on eggs, salsa, salsa Verde, Salami and eggs is good too.

Cooked bacon or real bacon bits. Ham. The aforementioned cheese. Crumbled sausage.

I didn't see it mentioned that you don't eat meat.

Hi all, and happy 2015 to everyone! I am trying to eat more protein at breakfast, as opposed to my usual low-fat and fat-free muffins (I typically bake several different kinds and freeze them, but even I get sick of them sometimes!). My go-to breakfast is scrambled eggs or egg whites (or half and half), plus 1-2 slices of toast (I LOVE the blueberry bread that they sell at my local Target) and a banana or other fruit ... plus coffee of course! Anyway, so far I have tried my scrambled eggs with different kinds of cheese (can't really taste the cheese, which surprises me -- we used to get scrambled eggs with cheese for breakfast at I-House in Berkeley and I could always taste the cheese, yum!); bacon bits; tiny pieces of cut-up ham; tiny pieces of cut-up steak; tiny pieces of red onions (was surprised at how much I liked this!); and I think that's all. (Oh, I didn't try these all at the same time, lol!)

I was thinking of trying avocado (love love love it) but I don't know when I would add it?

Oh, for breakfast I'm not too worried about calories as I like to get more of calories/fat early in the day rather than later. Just a habit.

So, what do YOU put in your scrambled eggs? (And FYI, when I start a thread, I am very generous with reps to all helpful replies!! )
Cream cheese and chives in the eggs. I would put the avocado on my toast or an English muffin.

Something I LOVE in my scrambled eggs is loroco, an edible flower bud popular in El Salvador. You can find it frozen in Latin grocery stores. The flavor is similar to asparagus but a bit milder. A scrambled egg with loroco is one of my favorite ways to eat eggs.

Salvadoran pupusarias offer loroco as one of the items you can get in a pupusa (along with cheese, beans, pork, etc).

I am partial to a bit of sauteed onion and fresh mushrooms, toss in a handful of baby spinach, stir until wilted, add the eggs/whites, stir until almost done, and then sprinkle some cheese on top.

I've seen Jars of that for sale. I might give it a try now!

Your picture is an omelet, not scrambled eggs.

If I have sour cream on hand I add a dollop to the eggs and splash of milk before whisking it together. Make the eggs creamy and fluffy.
