Scrambled Eggs with Tomato, Cheddar and Basil

Community Recipe from


  • 6 eggs
  • 2 Tbs. water
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet onion such as Vidalia or Walla Walla
  • 1 tomato, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup coarsely shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Directions:
  2. In a bowl or large glass measuring pitcher, whisk together the eggs
  3. and water until well blended.

  4. In a large fry pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the
  5. onion and cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Raise the
  6. heat to high and add the diced tomato, basil, salt and a grind of

  13. about 3 minutes.

  14. Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs and cook for 1 minute more. Divide
  15. the eggs evenly among warmed plates and serve immediately. Serves 4.
