Cheesy Onion and Eggs Recipe

Cheesy Onion and Eggs Recipe

The recipe I’m sharing today is seriously so, so, so good! I can’t take credit for these cheesy onions and eggs. My husband cooked dinner last week and created it from scratch. (Well, something like it may exist in the world… I’ve just never had it!) This was so delicious! So delicious that I had to make it this week for some of our friends, and I added a few items to the recipe because we had them and needed to use them.

Basically, this recipe is a delicious breakfast or breakfast-for-dinner recipe that fills all your cravings. It is low-carb… so if you need carbs, toast a slice or two of your favorite whole grain bread!

Seriously, this cheesy, eggy, sauteed onion dish is just divine! I think it comes down to the fact that it’s all cooked in butter and the spices include saffron. YUM! (Though you could cook in coconut oil instead.)

1. To get started, grab all your spices: salt, cardamom, thyme, basil, rosemary, sage, paprika, tumeric and saffron. I made a mix that had about an eight teaspoon of each, but 1 tsp of saffron and used a mortar and pestle to grind it all up since the saffron and rosemary were not ground. I didn’t use the entire spice mixture on this recipe, but I liked the amount of saffron to the others. This is just the spices that my husband used and I copied this time around… but be creative! There are many options that would taste great!

2. Chop up 1.5 small onions and saute them in 1 tbsp butter on medium heat. You can substitute coconut oil if you are avoiding cooking with butter. I LOVE the smell of onions being cooked but HATE chopping them. They always make me cry! The only time they don’t is when I think about it ahead of time and put on some science goggles prior to chopping.

3. Once all the onions are soft (about 5 minutes), put in about a quarter of the spice mixture so that the onions are super flavorful!

4. Spread your onions nicely across the pan and add the eggs. Roll the pan around a little to make sure you have evenly spread the white part throughout all the onion. (Note: I only added 7 eggs here but if you want to follow the recipe with the nutrition below, add 8 eggs for 4 servings total.)

5. Add another quarter of the spice mixture on top of the eggs and cover with a lid. This leaves half the spice mixture for another meal. Turn down the heat a little so that the onions don’t burn. The covered lid will help your eggs cook through quicker.

6. Check the eggs every couple of minutes. When the eggs are no longer runny, they are ready for the next part. First, spread the bacon evenly across the pan.

If you are doing the 21 Day Fix: sub the butter out and use coconut oil instead. Each serving would be 3/4 blue, 1/2 green, 1 red, 1 tsp.

The eggs weren’t super runny by the end of this but still soft in the middle. If you want them runny, you could throw the cheese on a few minutes earlier, and it would be super tasty as well!
