Author Notes

These easy grilled pork chops just might have you questioning why you ever thought steak was the best addition to scrambled eggs at breakfast. Ready in just about 30 minutes, these quick chops are served alongside creamy scrambled eggs with green onions and chives. Just don't forget to make a batch of spicy chile ketchup (it'll last in the fridge for a few weeks) to drizzle over the whole plate. —Food52
