I found the perfect recipe on Nest Fresh Eggs website that I plan to make for National Scrambled Eggs for Dinner Day:
It’s called " Favorite Summertime Scramble with Tomato and Basil"
This is bound to become your go-to National Scrambled Eggs for Dinner Day dish … or your anytime-egg recipe.
Favorite Summertime Scramble with Tomato and Basil
- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 plum tomatoes cored and diced (about 1 cup)
- kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4-5 large NestFresh Eggs
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
- 2 tablespoons torn fresh basil leaves
- warm buttered toast
Heat the oil and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat just until the garlic begins to sizzle. Add the tomatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk in the cheese. Add to the skillet, reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring gently, until the eggs are soft-set but still creamy, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the basil and serve with toast.

Not only that, but our hens are also free to jump on perches, run throughout the barns, lay their eggs in nestboxes, flap their wings, preen in a dustbath, socialize with their friends, and enjoy all of the perks of being a 100% cage free NestFresh hen. Because we treat our hens so well, they produce the freshest, best tasting eggs. The happiness of both our hens and our customers are our highest priorities.
