chopped fresh cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
I really enjoyed it, using home grown cilantro (very strong) and extra parmesan. Others that I shared it with liked it but were not as excited about it as myself, as they were not big cilantro fans. If you like cilantro you gotta try this!
Let me start by saying, I love garlic every which way... except raw. By the time the eggs were cooked properly, the garlic was still pretty raw. I really wish I would have sauteed the garlic separately before adding the eggs. I loved the cilantro and thought it was the perfect amount, but the garlic killed it for me. I'll make these again, but cook the garlic a bit first. Thanks :)
This is good. There is a very strong cilantro taste, so it could be cut down a bit. However, bf and I liked it. Thanks!
Thanks for this recipe idea. I only ever eat eggs over easy, boiled, or in omelettes/frittatas, so this was a good incentive for me (being a BIG garlic and cilantro lover) to have them scrambled. I eyeballed the amounts and used more of both in my eggs. Tasty.
The cilantro gave the dish a very fresh taste but was a bit overwhelming. I'll cut down to 1 TBS next time. And, even though I love garlic, I'll be sure to use a smaller clove next time. But we did enjoy it - yum, sour cream - and will make again, perhaps as an omelet with cheese inside! Thanks!
This is a nice variation to the boring scrambled egg. I made it exactly as written - here is what I will change next time I make it: instead of garlic, I will use garlic powder, I will add chopped onion and omit the parm cheese. A little hot sauce, and I think it will be perfect! I eat an egg everyday and was looking for a new way to prepare - this is the perfect canvass to build on in my opinion. (I didn't use the full amount of cilantro)
Considering the fact that I used Egg Beaters, fat free sour cream, no added salt, and no butter (used spray in pan), it helped put some flavor into those Egg Beaters. I still would prefer to have eggs with mushrooms, onions, red peppers and a little bacon, so for that reason I have to give this 4****.
This is tasty! I left off the parmesan and used plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Also sauteed my garlic first and added a dash of cumin. Ate them with a small extra dollop of yogurt.
