Level-Up Scrambled Eggs
Spread the love

This level-up scrambled eggs recipe features a fluffy egg with elevated flavors, a sauce, and fish toppings. This is a fancier version of scrambled eggs that Filipinos love to chow down.

Since this involves cooking the eggs thin and then rolling them for aesthetics, it can be easier by using a non-stick pan and a flexible spatula.

  • 1 medium red onion – chop finely
  • 5 cloves garlic – mince finely

  • Rolling the egg is easier for a non-stick pan and a flexible spatula.
  • Cover the pan while cooking the egg to trap the steam and cook it faster.
  • If you don’t have matambaka, you can use milkfish or tilapia.
  • You should not cook the garlic and ginger along with the sauce. The herb flavor will be overpowering.
  • This level-up scrambled eggs is best with hot coffee.
