Recipe by Chef John
"Cooking isn't about always doing the right thing, and this summer scramble is a perfect example. Adding juicy, sweet cherry tomatoes to a scramble tastes great, but it's not a common practice since having a pool of liquid under your eggs is considered bad form. I don't care; I have toast. Try to find a goat milk feta cheese for this; it's awesome!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

red pepper flakes
cherry tomatoes, halved
crumbled feta cheese
very thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
Just tried it. Didn't have the fresh basil or Feta cheese but had some blended cheese and the tomatoes. Came out tasting great and the time to cook helped me not overcook them.
When you make scrambled eggs you don't stir them at all....you gently fold them inwards until everything is cooked properly and instead of stirring and getting thousands of little egg nuggets you get more of an omelet looking scrambled egg...try it Chef John...you might like it !!!
Made it just like the recipe! Excellent. I will probably cut the tomatoes in half next time, but loved it,
I tried this recipe and it was great. I fixed the tomato water problem. I had a hand colander and gently slide it into the colander. Once the water dripped through slide it back on the skillet. Reduced the water issue by a great deal.
I tried this recipe two days in a row. The first day I forgot to add the feta, tomatoes, and basil until after the eggs were cooked. Still turned out delicious! The second day I only had canned tomatoes, which turned the eggs a shade of red...still delicious. This will continue to be a staple to change up the breakfast food routine. Thank you!!!
So this gets 1-star from some idiot because he didn't like the way Chef John stirred the eggs. This is an outstanding and simple breakfast. Stirred mine just like Chef John.
so simple and delicious! I substituted pecorino romano cheese because I don't like feta. Definitely needed to add more than I did, but that was my choice. Also used roma tomatoes because that's what I had. A new staple breakfast food! Three eggs is a LOT for one person, so next time I'll use two.
I have been eating egg, tomatoe, feta omelets for years to cure the occasional hangover... and it tastes great as well.
