What’s your favorite breakfast? Breakfast is one of my favorite meals, so I have a slew of favorite dishes. Weekdays are rushed so a quick breakfast is in order. On the weekends, I usually make something special. My Prosciutto Brie Scrambled Eggs are an elegant and simple dish for an early breakfast or a later brunch.
One of my favorite brie cheeses is from Trader Joe’s. It’s a goat brie and sooo tasty. You can try this brie, or another one.
Chop and fry some prosciutto until crispy and set aside. Whisk together some eggs in a bowl until light and frothy. Melt some butter in a non-stick pan. Pour the egg mixture into the non-stick pan. Stir the eggs gently until soft curds form. Add some brie cubes and stir until the brie melts. Add the crispy prosciutto to the eggs and brie, and warm through. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with toast, biscuits, or muffins.
This dish could be part of your brunch buffet bar for a special Sunday celebration.
