Basil and Mozzarella Scrambled Eggs recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Soured cream keeps these scrambled eggs really rich and creamy, while the basil and mozzarella add a little Italian flair. Serve with granary toast and extra grated mozzarella over the top.


  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tbsp. soured cream
  • 60g grated mozzarella
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and black pepper


  1. Whisk eggs and soured cream until smooth. Whisk in the mozzarella.

  2. Melt butter in a large pan and add the eggs. Cook, stirring occasionally, until they look around 30-40 seconds from being done. Take the pan off the heat and add basil, salt and pepper.

  3. Stir until the eggs are set to your liking. Serve immediately.

If you like, add dried basil in place of fresh. Recipe serves 2.
