Scrambled Eggs with Ramps, Asparagus and Morel Mushrooms

Scrambled Eggs with Ramps, Asparagus and Morel Mushrooms


The other week I made the asparagus, morel and ramp quiche with a brown rice crust and as I was running out of it I thought that a simple scrambled egg version would also be nice. I knew that the ramps and morel mushrooms would be disappearing quickly and I wanted to enjoy them as much as I could before they were gone. Luckily last weekend I was able to find all of the ingredients at the farmers market and I have been enjoying scrambled eggs with wild leeks, asparagus and morel mushrooms for breakfasts this week. One of the things that I like about scrambled eggs is that you can add pretty much any flavours to them and the ramps and morel mushrooms certainly added a ton of flavour to these scrambled eggs. Another thing that I like about scrambled eggs is that they are really easy to make and they don't take much time. You can easily have a hot fresh cooked breakfast on a workday morning if it is scrambled eggs.

This is the kind of dish I like to make for supper, with a green salad topped and some crusty bread. It looks delicious.

Ah, you had me at eggs! I love eggs and your scrambled version with veggies is wonderful!

Cheryl said...

You are so creative, ramps and fiddleheads, I would never touch either :)

This is so creative and has all my favourite ingredients in it. Although we don't have ramps in Greece I love leeks and I am sure I would love this as well.

Lisa said...

This sounds great. I eat eggs often and would be sure to enjoy this dish. Mushrooms and asparagus go together nicely!

Jacqueline said...

That looks great although I had to google ramps to find out what they were!

Phoo-D said...

This is one of our favorite ways to enjoy morels. The eggs carry the mushroom flavor beautifully without overwhelming it. Lovely photo!

Jenn@slim-shoppin said...

The farmer's market opens next weekend in my town and I can't wait to see if someone has ramps, I've heard so many recipes using them.

Your eggs look stupendous!

All the best of spring in one, quick breakfast. Can't beat that! Morels and asparagus were made for one another.

I can always count on you for great recipes and awesome pics!
Thanks for sharing!

Marta said...

What I like about scrambled eggs is that you can have them for any meal of the day! And that they're so nutritous and light! Well, I guess they're as light as what you put in them, but this version looks like another lovely way of showcasing these short-season ingredients!
Thanks for the lamb tip as well! I couldn't find "stewing lamb" but my butcher ended up cubing some shoulder for me.

Allen said...

A perfect springtime dish - I love eating asparagus-mushroom omelets over rice.

Pam said...

Now that's my kind of breakfast!

Katie said...

This looks AMAZING. My parents farm flourished with morels about a month ago, I wish I would have had this recipe then!

CharlesLiao said...

mmm~ the ingredients sound great but i think the dish can be further enhanced by adding some more butter or olive oil before the eggs (maybe beaten eggs with some cream in advance) ~ and then shorten the cooking time for the eggs~ it should be taken away from the heat just halfway done......alright i just don't like eggs that is completely done :P ~ hehe~ but thanx for all the great works on recipes

Pam said...

That looks like a wonderful light breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

♥Rosie♥ said...

This dish would be lovely for brunch on a lazy weekend! I'd serve chunks of lovely crusty bread along side.

The Duo Dishes said...

It's like a deconstructed omelette. Yum.

pinkstripes said...

Your eggs look and sound delicious. Unfortunately, I don't think we get ramps down here.

oneshotbeyond said...

love the sound of this! I'm doing two egg dishes tomorrow for tasty Tuesday too. Tell me it's our great minds thinking alike! :-)

unconfidentialcook said...

I adore morels, used to hunt for them...and always love trying a recipe that doesn't include pasta and lots of cream/butter. Thanks.

Deborah said...

I'm jealous of the morel recipes I've been seeing - I can never find them here!

Dragon said...

I wish we had morels all year long here. This is one decadent scrambled egg. :)

ttfn300 said...

bah, i'm totally wishing i had picked up those morels!! this sounds awesome :)

Crazy About Cakes said...

Wow! That looks delicious. I will definitely have to give it a try. Glad I stumbled upon your blog! It is great.

homecooked said...

This looks perfect fro breakfasts!

Jeff said...

Ramps I have given up on finding all together but the lack of morels makes me dead on the inside.

I love taking the small morels that I get that are not useful for frying or anything and tossing them with eggs and they add a great earthy flavor to the whole dish.

Nicely done!

Peter M said...

Us Greeks often have omelets for dinner. This would be a good one!

Mary and Sean said...

Hi Kevin,
I love how easily scrambled eggs come together too, and I would eat this any time of day...maybe even a satisfying late night dinner after a long day.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out the kitkat drink. Another food question for you-- have you ever made any recipes with Natto? I recently tried them and wondered how they could be spiced up!

Jackie @PhamFatale.com said...

mmm morel mushrooms... it sounds so luxurious. This dish is like a upscale version of scrambled eggs. Well done!

Claudia said...

Gorgeous recipe. Morels are fast diasappearing here. Limited supply this year. Everything you have is nothern-fresh (meaning in MN - I an get it at Farmer's Market) and wonderful. I will make this... as soon as the morels pop up.

Katie said...

These would be my perfect eggs!

ChrysV said...

I would really enjoy this! Love it!

Kevin said...

Mary and Sean: I have just had nattou on rice. I really enjoy it with just the bit of soy sauce that the packages come with. Using nattou in recipes sounds like fun. I will have to look for some.

RedEarth said...

Those eggs look overcooked.

what are ramps?

Kevin said...

Anonymous: Ramps are wild leeks that are available for a short time in the Spring. Here is the wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allium_tricoccum
