Fresh Corn & Egg Scramble


One of my go-to "I have no idea what to cook tonight" meals is breakfast for dinner.  It's different for the kids, it's easy, and you can get rid of all your leftovers.  Just scramble eggs, and throw everything in it!  I had never really thought about putting corn in my eggs until I had breakfast at Martha's 22nd Street Grill in Hermosa Beach, California.  They make a white corn scramble that's to die for.  During the summer, I almost always have leftover corn in the fridge, and I love slicing off the kernels into salads, pastas and now... scrambles!  This was delicious, probably due to the cream and Boursin cheese I added (no judging) but also because of the delicious, fresh, summer corn.

Fresh Corn & Egg Scramble
(Serves 4)

2 T unsalted butter
6 large eggs
1/4 cup milk or cream
4 ears of cooked corn, kernels sliced off
1/4 cup Garlic & Herb Boursin cheese (or garden veggie flavored cream cheese), crumbled
1 T chopped fresh cilantro (or parsley)
Salt and pepper 

In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat.  While heating, whisk the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl.  Add to skillet, and cook until fluffy using a rubber spatula to stir eggs.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

I read the title and thought--"just like at Martha's" and low and behold...Martha's. It is my order every time. Hope you enjoyed the South Bay!

I love making 'everything but the kitchen sink' scrambles--aren't they a great meal, any time of day? And you can sneak some veggies in there without alarming husbands, children, and other non-veggie loving family members. :)

I always have leftover corn too, especially this time of year. I never thought of using it with scrambled eggs. What a brilliant idea!! Great post!

Growing up my dad would make egg scrambles with leftover corn and leftover rice-a-roni, throw a little sausage in and Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Granted, this was the early 80's and my dad is king of tossing anything and everything into meals. SO SO good. And don't knock it until you try it.... also making tuna fish sandwiches and dipping it into hot coco. People cringe every time I say that.

What a great idea and an excellent variation from our usual omelet for dinner. I love corn and always buy a bunch of fresh corn at the local farm stand. I tend to make too much and now I know what to do with the leftovers. My family is going to enjoy this! Plus, I always like to have a few new quick, easy dinner ideas once the kids get back to school and their schedules get hectic.
