Scrambled Eggs on Toast


March 3, 2012

Our 8 year old daughter made us scrambled eggs on toast entirely on her own this morning for our breakfast.

Scrambled eggs on toast make an equally great lunch.

  • Yields: 2 adults & 3 kids


8 - 10 eggs depending on age of the children

3 - 4 tbsp of milk

Bread to toast

Salt and pepper

Chives - optional

Smoked salmon - optional


Break the eggs into a bowl with the milk and a little salt and pepper to taste - whisk thoroughly (I use a fork but a whisk is also works well)

Heat a saucepan and when hot add a little butter and let it melt

Add the egg mixture

Stir often breaking up the egg as it solidifies and ensuring it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan or burn

When all the liquid egg has gone serve up on slices of toast - buttered if you like - with more black pepper to taste

Younger children can help with a lot of this too, cracking the eggs into the bowl (or a glass before transferring to the the bowl so you can take the shells out!), adding the milk and of course whisking, they love helping whisk!


When we've got fresh chives in the garden we often snip these quite small with scissors and put them in with the egg mixture before cooking. The chives add a really nice flavour - also the kids love getting them from the garden and cutting them with their children's scissors (washed of course!).

Smoked salmon placed on the top of the eggs is delicious, healthy and a fantastic way of getting the kids to eat fish, ours absolutely love it. We let the kids portion up the salmon and there is usually very little left for us.
