  2. b) Cheddar cheese
  3. c) Salt and pepper
  4. d) English muffins
  5. e) Green onion
  6. f) Large eggs
  7. g) Milk

Cooking the scrambled eggs

To enable you make the perfect scrambled eggs, you'll need to beat the eggs in to a bowl and thoroughly mix them with milk, salt and pepper. Next, in a large non-stick skillet, heat the butter over medium heat until hot before pouring in the egg mixture. Once the eggs start to set, use an inverted turner to pull them across the skillet. Doing this causes them to form larger yet softer curds. As they continue to cook, keep on pulling, lifting and folding them, till all liquid egg remains disappear and the eggs become fully thickened.

Scrambled Eggs with Cheese

Preparing the cheese and muffins

The only requirement needed in preparing your cheese is to have it grated. You can do this before starting to cook the eggs or while toasting the muffins.

In terms of the English muffins, you can spice them up a little by toasting them. To do this, first slice them in halves and lay them on a baking sheet before putting them in the oven (at 350 degrees) for about 10 minutes.

Making the sandwich

To make the perfect scrambled eggs with cheese and English muffins, you'll need to take the first half of the muffin, add some cheese on top of it, then the egg and lastly, the other half of the muffin. In case you'd like to add more flavor to your muffins, you can add a tiny smear of butter or even more pepper or hot sauce. Similarly, you can top with diced herbs or in this case, green onion to garnish the sandwich.

At this point, you can start enjoying your stuffed muffin or, can stick it/them back to the oven for a few minutes so as to melt the cheese or warm them up. In case you'd like to store them for later, stick them onto a baking sheet and put them in the freezer - unwrapped and uncovered, for about 1-2 hours. Doing so will enable them lose excess moisture hence freeze a bit. After this, you can go ahead and wrap them using a plastic wrap or foil.

- The reason why people are discouraged from heating these muffins in the microwave is that, microwaving them makes them soggy and well, no one likes eating soggy sandwiches.
