Silky, creamy Goat Cheese Scrambled Eggs are a quick and tasty morning meal with high protein for some staying power. Serve for brunch or even a quick weekday breakfast and feel like you're getting a restaurant quality dish.
About these Eggs
Feta or cheddar seem like the most common choices when it comes to adding cheese to your morning scrambled. And yes, not that goat cheese in eggs is riveting, but it does indeed feel sophisticated and restaurant worthy.
The creaminess of the goat cheese, with fluffy eggs and egg whites gently cooked on the stove top is simple, but just so dang delicious.
- Eggs - Pasture raised eggs are not only more nutritious, but also have more flavor. Grab these if you can.
- Egg Whites - These bulk up the scrambled eggs a bit and make them fluffier.
- Goat Cheese - I think goat cheese is better when you buy the log and crumble yourself. Use a flavored one if you wish.
- Scallions - Fresh scallions brighten up the breakfast dish. Chopped chives and/or parsley would be tasty, too.

How to Make This Recipe
Step 1: In a mixing bowl, add eggs.
Step 2: In a mixing bowl, add egg whites.
Step 3: In a mixing bowl, add milk.
Step 4: In a mixing bowl, whisk together until everything is combined. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Wait until the skillet is warm and ready to cook the eggs.
Step 5: Spray with cooking spray and pour in the egg mixture in. Allow eggs to slowly cook. As they begin to partially set around the edges of the pan, push the edges towards the center, allowing the uncooked eggs to spill toward the outside. Keep folding eggs inward without flipping for 2-3 minutes.
Step 6: Crumble fresh goat cheese onto the eggs, season with red pepper flakes, and salt + pepper. Serve hot with Copycat IHOP Breakfast Potatoes and fresh greens. Enjoy!
1. Do not cook on high heat. Your scrambled eggs will cook too quickly and become tough if you attempt to cook on high heat. Low and slow is the key.
2. Use a generous amount of cooking spray. You want to easily be able to push your eggs toward the center of the pan without them breaking.
These Goat Cheese Scrambled Eggs are best served hot, right after cooking. If you prep and reheat it’s likely they’ll cook more in the microwave and lose their silky texture.
