Tempt My Tummy… Breakfast Anyone?

by Lisa on April 8, 2013

As I posted last week, we had a house full of guest. It was a wonderful visit. One of the guest was my sister in law’s mother. We call her Nana Janet.  Nana Janet is the true hostess and a wonderful cook.  It is always nice to travel to her home for a visit.  She is the the best cook and hostess! However, she was at my home….   Then Nana Janet asked if she could help with the meal planning and the cooking while visiting. She loves to cook for large numbers and wanted to be a help to me.  So,  I said “YES, OF COURSE!” She took over planning and preparing several of our meals.  How awesome is that?  Instead of me cooking for all the company, she wanted to cook!  Lucky for us, because she does every meal well! You may remember my reference to Nana Janet, this past fall, when she hosted us and baked the wonderful Quick and Zesty Orange Rolls.  Those rolls were incredible and made a great TMTT post.

While visiting, last week, before taking a day trip to the Saint Louis Arch, we had a big breakfast.  Nana Janet was in the kitchen preparing the BEST scrambled eggs I have ever had.  I had decided to bake my yummy Homemade Butter Dipped Biscuits (If you haven’t seen this recipe, check it out!).  Nana Janet made her “gourmet scrambled eggs”  to accompany the biscuits and we served up some left over ham from our Easter dinner.  Oh it was such a nice breakfast!

So, here is the recipe to these eggceptional eggs. 🙂  As you will see, they are special and require a few ingredients you may not always keep in your fridge.  These are for a special occasion.  You need to try them some time.

“Gourmet Scrambled Eggs”


  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons half and half
  • 1 twist of cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons mascarpone
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan, grated


  • Crack all the eggs into a bowl or a large cup. Take a fork and beat the eggs until they’re completely mixed together.
  • Then add the Half & Half and the pepper and beat some more.
  • Pour the eggs into the pan and begin to scramble the eggs.
  • Add the cheeses to the beaten eggs and continue to cook the eggs until scrambled eggs are done.

See the picture below.  There were not many eggs remaining after everyone starting filling their plates.  Of course, I forgot to get a good picture before everyone started eating.  You can also see the biscuits.  I had doubled the recipe and what you see in the picture is the second batch of biscuits.  They first batch went quickly.

Thank you, Nana Janet, for sharing more yummy goodness with me and my Tempt My Tummy friends. 🙂

To the right is myself and Nana Janet.  We are inside the pod which was taking us to the top of the Saint Louis Gateway Arch.  Do I look happy?  I was actually slightly anxious going to the top! I’m just sayin’.  Nana Janet, we all love you.  Thanks!
