How to make ‘Colorado-Style’ Cheesy Scrambled Eggs

By  | 

‘Colorado-Style’ Cheesy Scrambled Eggs


1 TBS butter
3 eggs (we are using NestFresh Cage Free, non-GMO Colorado Eggs)
1 tsp Milk (or Heavy Cream)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup shredded cheese (I like Pepper Jack, but Cheddar or Monterey Jack work well too)
1 TBS ‘Colorado-Style’ Southern Chow Chow


In a large nonstick pan (with sloped sides), melt the butter over medium-low heat, being careful to not brown the butter.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, add the eggs and milk. Whisk until smooth. Swirl the pan around to coat the butter on the bottom and up the sides. Pour the eggs into the pan and let sit for a few seconds. When the eggs begin to lightly set on the bottom, use the whisk to gently beat the eggs, then allow them to sit for just a few seconds between beating them again. Curds will begin to form and increase throughout the cooking time. Repeat this process of whisking then resting the eggs for a few seconds until about 50 percent of the eggs are set and the rest are still wet. At this point, sprinkle the eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper and continue to whisk and rest alternately. Once the eggs are 75 percent done, add the cheese and Chow Chow and continue to whisk the eggs until done. This entire process from pouring in the eggs to them being finished should take 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and continue to scramble in the last seconds. Serve warm.
