Friday's Fixin's: Slow Olive Oil Scramble

One of my new favorite blogs is The Well Daily. Their tag line is: “happy pills, delivered daily.” How Silver Lined is that?  I mean, really.

There are 4 categories to the site: MindBody, Kitchen, Beauty, Green and Style. I have to say that I love ’em all, but the Kitchen category is pretty much my fave.

Last week, I found this recipe for Slow Olive Oil Scramble. OMG. So, so, so good. As they say on the blog, “Your standard bowl of cereal will seem like a total snooze once you’ve tried these slow scrambled eggs.” …and they are SO RIGHT.

Slow Olive Oil Scramble


  • 4 extra large eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (I use 1/2 of this amount)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • fresh black pepper
  • 2 1/2-inch slices good country bread or ciabatta (I used gluten free bread)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped oregano or chives


  • Crack the eggs into a bowl. Whisk the olive oil into the eggs, drizzling it in slowly. Add the salt and a few grinds of fresh black pepper.
  • Pour the eggs into a non-stick pan over low heat and begin to stir gently with a rubber spatula. As the eggs start to set around the edges, scrape them toward the center repeatedly. It should take about 10 minutes for the eggs to finish cooking. Keep an eye on the clock—if it looks like the eggs are cooking too quickly, remove the pan from the heat, keep stirring and return it to the heat after a minute.
  • When the eggs are done, they’ll be creamy and shiny. Toast the bread, spread the eggs onto the toast, sprinkle with chopped herbs and enjoy!

I would have taken a photo of the finished product but I, uh, gobbled them up too quickly. Oops! I highly recommend eating them S.L.O.W.L.Y. so that you can enjoy them (Silver Lining).

Love and eggs are best when they are fresh.

    Thank you for this recipe. I love olive oil. Try Marzetti ranch. It is full of olive oil. I could eat it
    with a spoon. I lived on soft boiled eggs after my head and neck radiation. That and cream of wheat. I don't recommend the diet, I lost 58 pounds. But am back to a nice solid 120 now. I am three years out since radiation treatment in 2009. Just take it one day at a time.

    Eggs are my perfect food. I love them for breakfast lunch, dinner and dessert.
    I have never tried scrambling them with olive oil but always scramble them good and slow. Kind and gentle handling makes all the difference in the finished product. It's a good recipe for day to day life, too!
