Best Scrambled Eggs With Chives

Gone are the days where I make my scrambled eggs with milk. I’ve discovered (okay, my friend showed me) a much better combination to make the best scrambled eggs ever. So what do I replace the milk with? Sour cream.

Alright, so it’s nothing crazy. There’s probably a lot of people who make scrambled eggs like this. But hey, I’m going to share this recipe with you anyway because it’s freaking delicious and if you haven’t had it, you’re missing out.


I chose to pair these eggs with sourdough bread, fried truss tomatoes, and fried mushrooms. You can use whatever you like, but these do taste amazing paired with the scrambled eggs! Serves 4.


  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • a small handful of chopped chives
  • 1 tsp butter
  • sea salt, to taste
  • cracked pepper, to taste


  • sourdough bread, sliced
  • truss tomatoes
  • mushrooms

  1. Crack your eggs into a bowl. Add sour cream, and whisk.
  2. Heat butter in a frypan (or a skillet) on medium-low. Add the eggs, and stir gently. Once the eggs have started to get soft folds, add in the chives, sea salt, and pepper, and stir until they’re done.
  3. Serve on toasted sourdough bread with fried truss tomatoes and mushrooms.

That’s it! See, I told you it was simple. Eggs are such a quick and easy thing to make for breakfast, I think it’s important that you can perfect them for your exact taste. I actually have a couple of more scrambled egg recipes that I adore, so keep an eye out for them! How do you prefer your eggs? Scrambled on toast is my all time favourite, but I’d love to hear yours! Ooh, actually – I’m a big fan of egg salad, too. I just can’t choose.

    These look really good and I’ve never tried this either! I’ll be making this next time I get the hankering for scrambled eggs!

    Eggs are one food that I don’t like and so wish I did. No allergy, just hate the smell and texture. I do scrambled eggs for the hubby though so could try these.

    I’m vegetarian and don’t eat dairy, so I think this is a good recipe to make vegan! Thank you for sharing some great tips!

    I remember when I would feel poorly my Mum would often make scrambled eggs as something easy. This sounds like a delicious way to make it a bit different as well.

      My mum would do the same thing! It’s also often used as a lazy Sunday dinner at my house – just as good as when it’s for breakfast! :)

      I have a weird obsession with chives, they add SO much flavour to so many dishes! I lovelovelove them with eggs. Thanks so much!

    This recipe is a winner! I love that you added sour cream, it definitely give the eggs a better depth of flavor than milk. Using it as a topping for bread is the perfect breakfast!

    • Becca
      February 2, 2018 / 1:12 pm

      Thank you so much! :) It really does give them the perfect amount of fluffiness and flavour.

  17. February 1, 2018 / 5:59 am

    NEVER EVER did I understand why eggs were typically made with MILK! It is SOOOO NOT NECESSARY! In fact I find it 10000% stupid. And it adds NO flavor benefit AT ALL!

    • Becca
      February 1, 2018 / 9:11 am

      I think milk makes them a tiny bit fluffier, but nothing compared to what the sour cream does!

  18. February 1, 2018 / 12:50 am

    OH my god. These eggs look incredibly delicious. Not only that but mega fluffy. It must be the sour cream, right.? I wonder if I could sub it with something that is dairy free.?

    • Becca
      February 1, 2018 / 9:11 am

      Yes, the sour cream makes them super fluffy! :) Do you have vegan sour cream available to you? Otherwise, Veganaise might be an interesting substitute! I bet a tiny bit of the garlic one would be amazing.

  19. January 31, 2018 / 3:54 pm

    Yum! I need to try these for my kids. They look nice and simple to make. :)

      January 31, 2018 / 11:01 pm

      They are indeed simple! I hope your kids love them :)

  20. January 31, 2018 / 2:20 pm

    OMG! I had no idea you could use sour cream for eggs. I can’t wait to try this this weekend. I always have eggs for breakfast so I’m looking forward to mixing things up. :)
