Emeril's Herbed Cheesy Eggs on English Muffin
A Cheesy Breakfast Treat
Enter Emeril's Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed Contest! A great brunch recipe, these cheesy eggs are the perfect weekend comfort food. We love the different flavors of cheese in this recipe!
In a small bowl combine the cheese with 1 tablespoon of the chives and the tarragon and set aside, or cover and refrigerate for up to one week.
Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tablespoon of the butter and, when it begins to bubble, add the ham. Cook the ham for 1 to 2 minutes or until it is just golden brown. Transfer the ham using a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate and set aside until ready to use. Wipe the pan clean and return the pan to the stove.
Combine the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl and whisk well to combine.
Heat the sauté pan over medium heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Once the butter has melted add the eggs to the pan. Allow the eggs to set for 30 seconds, then begin stirring slowly with a heat-resistant rubber spatula. As soon as curds begin to form, increase heat to high and instead of stirring, use the spatula to fold the eggs over themselves. Fold in the cheese-herb mixture and the ham and cook for another 45 seconds or until warmed through.
Divide the eggs evenly among the English muffins and garnish with the remaining chopped chives and the grated Parmesan.
