Author Notes: Simple morning scrambled eggs with fresh mozzarella cheese and cherry tomatoes.Riley Wofford

Serves: 4 to 6

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil leaves
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the shallots and tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the tomatoes begin to soften. Transfer the tomatoes to a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the same skillet. Whisk together the eggs and milk in a large bowl to combine and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the eggs to the skillet and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring gently until the eggs are glossy and soft curds begin to form. Stir in the reserved tomatoes and mozzarella and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the cheese begins to melt. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
