Potato and Egg Breakfast Scramble

This simple breakfast scramble recipe will give you a good start to the day. An easy, versatile oneskillet breakfast filled with scrambled eggs, red potatoes, green onions, fresh thyme, and Gruyère.

Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 10 min  | Cook time: 15 min


  • 1 24oz bag Baby Red Potatoes, rinsed, scrubbed & diced.
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • dash of milk
  • 2 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2/3 cup Gruyère, grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped


First of all in a large nonstick or castiron skillet, combine the following ingedients: potatoes, water, oil, and salt; cover and bring to a boil over high heat. You need to cook until the water evaporates and the potatoes start to sauté, it usually takes up to 5 mins.

Then uncover the potatoes and stir frequently until lightly browned (use a wooden spoon), for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, scramble the eggs with a dash of milk. After that pour the eggs into the skillet, toss in the green onions and scramble until the eggs are just set, about 2 minutes.

Now you can remove the skillet from heat. For a better taste and a nice flavour sprinkle with grated cheese and top with fresh herbs.

Note: You may use some other kind of cheese. But my family and I prefer Gruyère as it gives an unsual creamy and nutty taste.

Enjoy your meal!
