Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 large jalapeno, chopped (or 2-3 smaller ones)
  • 2 eggs
  • Splash unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 ounce cream cheese (2 tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar

Instructions

  • Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the jalapeno to the skillet and sauté for about 3-5 minutes, until starting to get tender.
  • Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a bowl and add a splash of almond milk (about 1 tbsp or so). Whisk the eggs.
  • Turn the skillet with the jalapenos to medium low and pour in your eggs. Cut the cream cheese into a few pieces and dollop onto the eggs in the skillet. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top.
  • When the eggs have been cooking for 1-2 minutes and are completely set on the bottom, use a spatula to flip the eggs over in the pan. Cook for another 30-60 seconds, then fold one side over onto the other and serve.

Notes

I prefer to do a full flip and let both sides touch the heat of the pan, which is less traditional but I feel more assured that all the egg is cooked. But you can also wait until the top is set and just do the half flip if that’s more your style.
