Do you eat the same breakfast every morning? Tired of your typical eggs? Or are you just looking for a new, easy egg recipe? Today, I'm sharing my family's Crouton Egg Scramble with you!
Do you remember those 'choose your own adventure' books when you were little?
I would reread each story, seeing how different it would turn out in the end.
It was always fun to find something new.
That's kind of how this recipe works. It's an 'add what you like' kind of egg scramble dish with one main ingredient - croutons!
My father created these eggs and each time were equally delicious and unique.
My Daddy always says, "Know your spices and they'll be your friends."
He came up with this recipe while reading his spices in his cabinets and it's a family favorite!
Crouton Egg Scramble
Do you eat the same breakfast every morning? Tired of your typical eggs? Or are you just looking for a new, easy egg recipe? Today, I’m sharing my family’s Crouton Egg Scramble with you!
- 8 Eggs
- Milk or Cream
- 2/3 cup croutons

- Optional: Diced Ham
- Mix your eggs and milk as you normally will scramble them.
- Add the croutons and dry ingredients to the egg mixture, mix and allow them to soften for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Pour in the pan and top with shredded cheese, and breakfast ham.
- Scramble and serve!
Since this is a ‘create your own’ type of breakfast, add what your family will like. We use breakfast ham, but additionally bacon, sausage and lunchmeat ham are just as tasty.

My father adds cheese spread like Velveeta or bacon grease to his.
The croutons not only add an interesting texture to the eggs, but it also stretches the budget a bit by using less eggs than you typically would.
Since spices sometimes have dish or meal suggestions printed on the label for what dishes they work well in, look for those that include eggs. So mix and match the spices to your liking and give your normal morning scramble a little oomph!
