A Bit Weird Easy Cinnamon Eggs Recipe

Cinnamon egg scramble: a bit weird, but when you’ve tried this, you want to have cinnamon eggs for breakfast e-ve-ry day. I promise. 

Why cinnamon eggs for breakfast are good

Eating eggs for breakfast is easy, eating two eggs for breakfast is healthier than eating a bagel and eating something sweet for breakfast is more appetizing than eating something savory for breakfast. Period. That’s why I love eating two cinnamon eggs for breakfast. 

 

How I invented cinnamon eggs

Wait, what? Cinnamon eggs? As in: eggs with cinnamon? Hell yeah, that’s exactly what I mean! Admitted: for a long time this hasn’t been the way I had my eggs at all. Instead I used to have my eggs the most conventional way you can think of: scrambled, with lot of veggies, pepper and a pinch of salt (pink Celtic sea salt if you’re wondering).

One beautiful sunny, mellow morning I got up around 7:30 AM and toddled barefoot to the kitchen to make myself breakfast. Every night, just before I go to sleep, I look forward to this moment Breakfast is the best meal of the day, if you’re asking me. Anyway, when I opened the fridge I realized there was not much to choose from, as I didn’t have time to do proper groceries the previous day. Eggs, eggs and eggs were about the only thing I could choose from. So eggs it was. Scrambled eggs. Without veggies, with salt and pepper. 

While Tove Lo‘s ‘Stay High’ played through the speakers (on my bare knees: thank you for this song, hun!) I beated my eggs with almond milk and added pepper. At least, I thought took the pepper tin. Instead I took the cinnamon tin. Whoops! To my surprise that weird combination tasted just plain awesome. So, that’s how I ‘invented’ my cinnamon egg scramble.
 
 

 
 

I will serve you breakfast at bed

Cinnamon egg scramble sounds kind of weird, I know, but when you’ve tried this, you want to have cinnamon eggs for breakfast e-ve-ry day. I promise. If not, I will personally come over to your house every morning to prepare you any breakfast that you desire. I will even serve it at bed. I know I can promise that, because this is not going to be the case anyway.

  • it’s damn tasty.

 

Lots of cinnamon and almond milk

The recipe is kinda like classic scrambled eggs, but instead of using salt, pepper and heavy cream, I used lots of cinnamon and almond milk.

  1. I have to tell you that I accidentally did the same thing I usually put black pepper and some cayenne pepper in my scrambled eggs and grabbed the cinnamon One Day by mistake and didn’t realize until I started eating them I just happened to look up cinnamon scrambled eggs online just for the hell of it and I came across your recipe so I actually tried it as you described and it was phenomenal especially with cinnamon raisin toast as the eggs cooled toward the end of the plate it6 kind of reminded me of a Mexican restaurant I go to where they have really good flan so thank you for your recipe it’s dynamite

  2. Firstly, this sound actually weird but after knowing the process I really want to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing such a different healthy option.

  3. I do something similar, 1/2 cup Ricottaa cheese (part skim), 1 egg, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. Stevie Leaf sweetener. Mix well. Microwave 3 minutes. Yummy! Looks like cereal, but no carbs. Drink my milk on side as I’m eating it. Changes texture too much if I pour milk on it. I’m hooked!

  4. This recipe really threw me off. I love to cook and it runs in the family. My 10 year old son really enjoys coming up with his own ideas and eggs is something he cooks for breakfast for all of his siblings when given the chance. We have a full house with extra kids on the weekends for fun. Several of the kids hate eggs and will only cook my sons. His secret ingredient is cinnamon. I actually googled cinnamon and eggs out of curiosity while texting our oldest daughter about his cooking skills. I can’t wait for him to see your recipe. And the pride it will give him. Made my night! Thankyou.
