Ingredients: 

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

  • 4 sprouted corn tortillas, steamed 
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Directions: 

  1. Scramble eggs with Greek yogurt; set aside.

  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.
