Since it's a travel food...
Today we're putting our Taste Alike of Waffle House's Cheesy Eggs here on Feasting On Americana.
(Yeah, we know it's really "Cheese N' Eggs" but we call 'em Cheesy. It's our thing.)
(Go ahead and splurge - I won't tell.)
On the landing plate, I put shredded medium sharp cheddar cheese and a couple small butter pieces.
While your butter melts, scramble up 3 eggs.
I don't scramble them too much because I want a little white to show on the plate.
Let the butter melt on LOW. If your pan is too high the butter will brown.
(This is great for pasta - but we're making eggs here.)
Add your eggs - still on low.
Right away, add your shredded cheddar on top with a small couple pieces of butter.
Still on low, wait for the cheese to melt.
When the cheese is melted, turn the heat up a smidge.
Take your favorite spatula (for eggs, my favorite tool is a pancake turner. Seriously.) and start to move the eggs around. The eggs should pull away completely off the bottom. If not, turn down the heat.
On a side note:
Yeah, *poof* the pan got dirty around the edges.
Do not take a phone call in the middle of your cheesy egg tutorial.
Or, you'll end up having to make two batches of eggs.
Soon the curds will start to form.
Plate them while they are just a tad wet.
The carry-over heat will continue to cook them a bit on the plate and they'll be perfect when you hand them to your family. Yum.
Now, this might now be how they make the eggs at the Waffle House.
But, to our family, these *taste* like theirs do :)
When you make them, let us know what you think!
