Scrambled Eggs With Basil

Scrambled eggs with basil is such a delightful scrambled eggs combination. It is quite simple. However, the aromatic fragrance of fresh basil leaves is a very invigorating way to start the day. So, I hope you get to work this into your low carb meal planner soon.

Basil is a tropical herb that is the center of many Italian-inspires recipes. So, this scrambled eggs with basil would go well with an easy cherry tomato salad, keto zucchini bread, or plain keto bagels featured in the meal planner.

Ingredients

The scrambled eggs with basil are made with eggs, cream, basil, salt and olive oil.

  • Eggs – Fresh medium eggs were used to make the scrambled eggs with basil. So, with a larger or smaller egg you may need more or less ingredients.
  • Cream – A heavy whipping cream is used to make the eggs soft and even creamy if you like your eggs that way.
  • Basil – For scrambled eggs with basil, fresh basil is definitely the way to go to get the best taste. Therefore, a large fresh basil leaf was used from my little growing indoor basil plant. Dried basil will work too, but it will not provide the same great fresh and fragrant taste and aroma.
  • Salt – When it comes to scrambled eggs, the salt is always optional because eggs are naturally salty. Therefore, you can add enough salt to fit your taste.
  • Olive – Since Italian food often comes to mind when talking about basil, I kept it consistent with the taste of a nice olive oil for this scrambled eggs with basil recipe.
