I have been making scrambled eggs this way for many years. It is quick and easy to do. You just need a container with a tight fitting lid. A glass jar with a screw top lid works well. In the early morning hours and in a hurry to get out the door, you don’t want to drag out your kitchen equipment. Normally we are not making a large breakfast for a family and you just want a quick breakfast sandwich and coffee. . It is a technique you can even use for just plain scrambled eggs. Save a jar with a screw on lid that doesn’t leak to use for this. Some plastic containers also have tight lids that can be used. I favor a jar for this because it shakes up nice and that was the container of choice before there was plastic containers.
This is my go to recipe for a quick breakfast and you can make your favorite combo for scrambled eggs. Just break the eggs into the container add milk and stir with a fork to break up the eggs. Add other ingredients you desire and shake. Melt some butter in a small skillet and put some bread in the toaster. When the skillet is hot, pour the egg mixture in and scramble. It just takes a few minutes for the eggs to set, by that time the toast will be ready. I keep chopped sweet peppers in the freezer to have on hand and easy to grab and add to eggs. Any favorite cheese and cooked smoked meat can also make a nice addition to the scramble. English muffins make a great breakfast sandwich. Warm in the toaster or microwave for a few seconds.
