  • 12 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 log (4 ounces) fresh goat cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons minced chives


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, water, salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. Place a 10-in. cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. In the skillet, saute onion and jalapeno in butter until tender. Add egg mixture; cook and stir until almost set. Stir in cheese and chives; cook and stir until eggs are completely set.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
