Scrambled eggs are one of my very favorite dishes and I find that the make a wonderful meal for more than just breakfast and I can tell you that they have made their way onto my dinner menu more than a handful of times. Only within the past year have I discovered the gloriousness that is slow-scrambled eggs. They are rich, and velvety, and simple; all you need is patience!
These herby eggs were such a delight. The briny flavor of the capers, coupled with the woody, fragrant rosemary is an amazing pairing with the creamy eggs. Of course in order to complete the dish you must serve them over some nice crusty french bread.
This recipe is for one but it is easy to double, triple, quadruple, or whatever to your heart's content.
