How to Make Ricotta Scrambled Eggs

Crack your 2 eggs into a bowl and scramble. Mix the egg yolk and egg whites up REAL good! You can use an egg whisk, but if you are like me and can never find your kitchen utensils, a standard fork will do the job.

Create a Egg Ricotta Mixture

Next, let’s add in some salt, pepper and your ricotta. Yes, give it a little mix. I like the taste of salt and pepper baked into eggs.

Let’s plop in your ricotta cheese now. This is the magic ingredient that will make your eggs fluffy and give it a unique delicious flavor. Mix the ricotta – or wait. What would Moira say? Fold in the cheese, David! Fold your ricotta cheese into the egg mixture.

Add-In Suggestions

If you are wanting to add any of our recommended additional ingredients to your ricotta egg recipe, here is where you will do it. Sour cream helps give eggs a creamier taste.

Feta cheese adds an additional flavor element. Garlic, well – let’s just face it garlic is life. I like to add a dash of granulated garlic into the eggs and then to the butter. Speaking of butter, let’s cook our ricotta cheese eggs.

Cook Your Scrambled Eggs and Ricotta Cheese Mix

In a saute pan, melt your butter. Again, I love to add a dash of granulated garlic while the butter is melting to make a garlic butter for your ricotta eggs to cook in. If garlic isn’t your thing, no worries – just melt butter in your pan.

After the butter is melted, pour your ricotta cheese with eggs mixture into the frying pan. You will want to cook over medium heat.

You might notice there is a burping egg effect that happens when making ricotta and eggs, don’t worry! This is normal.

Let your ricotta scrambled eggs cook for a minute or so until the egg dish starts to form together. Next, you will take your spatula and move the eggs around as it forms to help all the eggs equally cook.

Almost Time to Eat!

If you are adding in feta cheese or cooked bacon – after a minute or so, add these ingredients into your dish.
