What you need to make this recipe:

  • 2 large eggs

How to make Scrambled Eggs with Salsa:

Step 1: Crack the eggs into a small bowl.

Step 2: Using a fork, whisk the eggs together until the egg yolks and whites are fully combined.

Step 3: Lightly grease a small non-stick frying pan with cooking spray or butter.

Step 4: Put the pan on the stove or hotplate and turn the heat on to medium.

Step 5: Once the pan is warm, pour the eggs into the pan.

Step 6: Cook the eggs, gently moving the rubber spatula across the bottom and sides of the pan every few minutes to break the eggs into small pieces.

Step 7: When the scrambled eggs are almost firm, add the cheese and salsa to the pan. Stir using a spatula.

Step 8: When the scrambled eggs are firm, take the eggs off the stove or hotplate.

Step 9: Put one slice of the toasted whole grain bread on a plate. Then, put half of the egg mixture onto the bread and top with the cilantro or green onion. Repeat this step for the remaining eggs and bread.
