  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4-1/2 c cheddar shredded
  • pinch kosher salt
  • dash black pepper optional


  • Crack eggs in a small mixing bowl with salt, pepper, and cheese. Whisk everything together until the yolks and whites are combined and no large streaks of each either is present.
  • Slowly melt one tablespoon of butter in a pan over low heat and add whisked eggs. Using a rubber spatula begin to push eggs towards the center of the pan. 
  • Keep eggs moving towards the center from all sides. Flip and fold as necessary. After about 2 min, add the last piece of butter. Allow eggs to firm to desired consistency. Remove from pan immediately.
