  • 2 pastured eggs
  • Kerry Gold Butter
  • 2 tsp. plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • ½ cup sweet onion, diced

  1. Scramble eggs with Greek yogurt; set aside.

  3. Add pesto and turn off the heat.
  4. Heat another small skillet over medium heat and when warm, add a teaspoon or two of butter.
  5. When butter is melted, add the scrambled eggs, salt and fresh ground pepper, and let sit for about 20 seconds. Using a silicone spatula, gently go under the eggs and around the pan and stir gently and let sit for about 10 seconds and stir again.
  6. Cook until eggs are done, and light and fluffy.
