Winter light

Winter Light ~ Slowly LivedCheese and Spring Onion Scrambled Eggs ~ Slowly Lived



There is something about the light that filters through my kitchen window during these winter months, the way it dances along the table, illuminating the objects in its path, bathing them in a pure white glow.
Each season has its own light, but by far my favourite is the winter.
Winter is the season we snuggle down and enjoy creature comforts, one of mine being comfort food. I have a love-hate relationship with eggs yet during the Winter and Summer, eggs feature regularly in our diet.
Experimenting the other morning, I created my favourite scrambled eggs to date.

Cheese and Spring Onion Scrambled Eggs

Serves 2
1 knob butter
1 spring onion, chopped finely
8 eggs, whisked
Handful grated cheddar
Black pepper, to taste
Heat the butter in a frying pan , adding the spring onion and softening for 4 minutes.
Add the eggs to the pan and sprinkle over the cheese.
Keep moving the eggs in the pan.
Once the eggs have become firm but not dry, serve
Season and serve with bread and butter or a small side salad.
Perfect for breakfast or lunch.
