Yea I always put in a dash of milk.

I'll put crème fraiche in my omelets but never tried it in scrambled.

I bet a bit of pesto stirred in would be good, with some fresh grated parm on top.

Try pea shoots. Works well with Parm. Add the pea shoots at the last minute and let them wilt.

Technically it's a Torta... The egg mixture was flipped over like a pancake. I have only eaten scrambled eggs in the Army. I'm sure the Original Poster can adapt...

She can! What you call it, it looked very tasty!

Thanks again for all the great suggestions! Today I added yellow onion and some cheddar cheese and it was very yummy. I hope others find this thread helpful in the future, too!

I've tried numerous things. Some are definitely flavor enhancements.

First, when you mix the eggs add a tiny amount of anchovy paste or, even better, anchovy oil. You won't taste it consciously; its purpose is to develop umami. The next group of additions may be added singly or in combination as you prefer. I only use free range whole eggs and high quality butter. Occasionally, I do cook the eggs in bacon fat.

Stir in a spoonful of mayo a few seconds before serving. This is an extremely simple and worthwhile addition.

Mix a small amount of very thinly sliced salami into the egg mixture before cooking.

Drop sufficient guacamole, salsa, and sour cream over the scrambled eggs a minute before serving. Each one should cover 1/3 of the eggs. Guacamole and egg is a very nice combination. Lift carefully to keep the dish intact on your plate.

Stir a few finely chopped anchovies into the egg mixture.

Should you have any asparagus in hollandaise sauce, add some when the eggs are hot on your plate.

Leftover shrimp or lobster are great. Mix them into the egg mixture.

When the eggs are almost cooked mix in a knob of butter and stir. You'll have scrambled eggs as they are prepared in France.

Use heated plates for your eggs. That way you can let them rest for two or three minutes before you eat them. You'll be amazed at the difference.

I often have scrambled eggs over Bay's English Muffins. They turn it into a real meal.

Try Olive oil if you are not using that.
Yes, White, Yellow or Spanish Onions. I don't know where the purple ones came from.
Cheddar Cheese, yes, good choice.
And if you like tomatoes, use/try Roma Tomatoes...

Sorry, I've been cooking 40+ years, use to bus, wash and cook in some hotels on Miami Beach.

Some of my favorite varieties:

1. Swiss cheese and a dash of black pepper.
2. Sauteed thinly sliced shallots and mushrooms with sharp cheddar cheese.
3. Au natural, with a dozen slices of bacon on the side
4. #2 but add sauteed quartered cherry tomatoes.

I usually make omelets, but if I miss the flip I chop it all up and scramble it.

Step 1...if you're not cooking with salt, you're doing it wrong. Add a pinch of kosher salt to the skillet a few seconds after you add the eggs, and stir like normal. You'll notice a difference the first try.

Step 2...what doesn't go well with eggs? Any veggies you like, any meats you like, any spices you like...try it! And cheese, all the cheese...

Step 3...luxurious ingredients make breakfast more exciting. Smoked salmon on a bagel, maybe crab or lobster, caviar, truffle oil. Definitely truffle oil...trust me on that one. You only eat breakfast once, (a day) right?
