“Sour cream makes these eggs rich and creamy and the basil adds a little kick of flavor. Sometimes I use pepperjack cheese and a little garlic and onion (powdered or fresh) for extra flavor.”

You're right on using sour cream in eggs. It is a great dairy item to use even without the cheese. This is a great variation on a brilliant theme. My favorite is chive but any herb will do just great. ENJOY!

Mmmm this was a quick and easy breakfast. The only thing I added was a sprinkle of sharp cheddar cheese on top, just because I like the bite. I think this would be great to serve for breakfast or brunch if you're having people over...it's fresh, quick, can easily be made in large quantities if you multiply the recipe, and the basil adds an unexpected twist that makes this dish seem a little more "gourmet" than regular old scrambled eggs. Thanks timbertiger!

Quick, easy and delicious breakfast! I used chives and shredded Colby-Jack cheese. Adding the sour cream gives the eggs a nice smooth texture. My whole family liked them. I love the fact that they are versatile. You can add whatever herb and cheese you want. Thanks for sharing! I will be making these again.
