Very good! I love feta cheese and scrambled eggs together, but this recipe was a bit heavy on the dried basil.... I cut the recipe in half and added just a bit of milk to the eggs to get them nice and fluffy. I knew just by looking at the recipe that the amount of dried basil would be too much and since I didn't want to ruin this I used a bit of fresh basil instead. I scrambled the eggs a bit then added the rest of the ingredients vs. mixing everything together. I also added in some cherry tomatoes cut in half and upped the feta a bit. This only needed just a bit of fresh cracked black pepper for seasoning. This was great tucked into some flour tortillas for a breakfast wrap!

Though I like all the flavors this has to offer it was just average for me. I'd rather make an omelet with these ingredients so the tastes are recognized better. Scrambling did nothing for this dish. Despite my review, we ate every single bite.

These are delicious scrambled eggs. I made the recipe as directed, but cut it in half for only one serving. I added a few chopped chives and omitted any salt. The ham and feta are salty enough. I also added the feta torward the end of the cooking, so it wouldn't get lost. Wonderful!

LOVED THIS! I will never be able to eat boring scramblers again. The only change I made was a 1 teaspoon i/o tablespoon of the basil. Simple, amazing...Thanks!

This is an absolutely great twist on conventional scrambled eggs. Vibrant, filling, and popping with flavor. Like many other reviewers have mentioned, cutting back from 1 tablespoon of dry basil to 1 teaspoon helps to not overpower the dish with the basil flavor. I also added the feta cheese in later when the egg was on the pan cooking as to not have it lost amidst the egg when it was cooking.

I left out the ham, as I'm vegetarian, and also used fresh basil, as it was what I had available. I thought this was really delicious, even without one of the main ingredients! The fresh basil was great, and I would now only try it with dried basil if I didn't have any fresh available. Really quick, easy and tasty!

WOW what an easy, quick and flavorful recipe. I have made this over and over. It has become a family favorite for breakfast. The only change I have made is to use three eggs, discarding 2 of the yolks so there are three egg whites and only one yolk, this brings down the fat and helps with our lower fat and carb diet. Try adding a tablespoon of chopped fresh mushrooms, perfect addition to this recipe

I used a heaping tablespoon of fresh basil and it was just right!
