  • Stir in 1/4 cup crème fraîche or mascarpone, optionally adding 1 tsp sugar for mascarpone.
  • Season with a pinch of kosher salt and black pepper.
  • Melt 1 tbsp butter in a medium skillet over medium heat.

  • If you’d like a more decadent scramble, add an extra tablespoon of butter to the pan before cooking.
  • You can also substitute crème fraîche or mascarpone for Greek yogurt for a lighter option with fewer calories but still plenty of flavor.

  • Finally, feel free to customize the dish with additional ingredients like bacon, smoked salmon, or herbs of your choice.
