My scrambled eggs recipe came about because of one main reason: my husband and I decided to go up north and stay in a cabin and all we had to cook on was an electric grill.

Scrambled Egg Recipe - Simple Life Happy Life

This long electric grill made making omelets very difficult, so my omelet turned into a scramble.

My hubby is a vegetarian, but he does eat eggs. Whenever we make any meal, we try to add in as many veggies as possible. We want to make sure that we are getting all of our nutrients, but we also find that having our meals mainly consist of veggies keep our weight in check.


Scrambled Eggs Recipe: Ingredients

  • 6 eggsWhipped Up Raw Eggs and Spinach
  • 1 splash of milk (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 onion
  • ¼ red pepper
  • ¼ yellow pepper
  • ½ cup of broccoli
  • ¼ cup of zucchini
  • ½ cup of mushrooms (you can mix and match whatever mushroom types you like, I typically do white mushrooms and Portobello)
  • ¼ cup of spinach



  1. Dice the onion (I’ve heard that if you breathe through your mouth and not your nose you can avoid the tears)
  2. Cut up the rest of your veggies and put them in a bowl. Rip the spinach to bite-sized portions and place in a separate bowlScrambled Egg Recipes - Simple Life Happy Life
  3. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them. My Mum’s side of the family is English, so I often add a little bit of milk
  4. Heat up your grill with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
  5. Add your onion to the grill. Let cook for about 3 minutes until the onion is a bit soft
  6. Add the rest of your veggies (minus the spinach) and cook for about 5 minutes (until the veggies very slightly start to brown)
  7. Add the whisked eggs over top of the veggies
  8. Give the eggs 30 sec to a minute and then start pushing them around with a spatula
  9. Once the eggs start to cook, add in the spinach
  10. Once the eggs start to brown, your scramble should be done. Just plate the dish and add pepper to taste

That’s it! A super simple recipe for a healthy, veggie-packed breakfast or lunch. You don’t have to be cottaging to do it. You can use this scrambled egg recipe even if you have simply messed-up while flipping over your omelet 🙂
