Scrambled eggs are always one of my go-to off-menu items when something unexpected comes up. For example, I might have been planning for a big grill-out, but big storms make me change my plans. That’s when I go to eggs. This Kentucky farmhouse scramble was absolutely delicious. It’s a great example of why breakfast for dinner is a great idea and not just when your plans have to change, but any time.
What really made this Kentucky farmhouse scramble special for both of us were the roasted red bell peppers and the crunchy French fried onions. This is the kind of scramble that makes omelets jealous.
