All you need is a little dash of shredded cheese and chives, and you're good to go. Simple is better, right? If not... you can up the amount of eggs used and add in your favorite fillings.

Here's how it's done:


2 eggs 1/2 tbsp butter Shredded cheddar cheese (or your cheese of choice) Freshly chopped chives
