Goat’s Cheese & Caper Scramble

The very best thing about being home is being able to cook up my own breakfasts again!

Don’t get me wrong, I love trying different things on holiday and hotel breakfasts… but no-one, and I mean no-one does your eggs quite the way you like ’em.

Only you know how to do them properly, and sometimes you just want to be at home, sit at your kitchen table and tuck into a good brekkie.

These goat’s cheese scrambled eggs are terribly easy, feel like something a little bit special and taste out of this world!

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-1

They only take about 10mins to whip up, and you can pile them on top of buttered toast or have them as they are for a lighter version.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-2

Topped with salty, zingy capers it’s a marriage of rich creamy flavours with an Italian twist.

To serve two you’ll need:

6 eggs (I like these ones)

Knob of butter

Half a round of goat’s cheese (this sort of thing)

Salt + pepper


Toast (optional)

Pop a nonstick pan onto a medium heat, add your butter and let it melt gently.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-3

Crack in your eggs.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-4

Quickly whisk them up and add a pinch of salt along with a good few grinds of fresh black pepper.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-5

Keep stirring it now and then with your whisk, and cut up your goat’s cheese.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-6

Save half and wrap it up to go into the fridge.

Chop the half you’re using into chunks.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-7

Don’t put it in right away!

Keep stirring your eggs, cooking them gently. (Pop your bread on to toast!)

Once it looks like it’s starting to come together, but still a little too wet to serve… add your cheese.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-8

Stir it in and keep cooking slowly until they’re done to your liking.

Pour onto plates and serve with fresh coffee or good hot tea.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-9

Nibble away, use your fork as a pusher and your toast like a hot buttery spoon.

Goat's Cheese Scrambled Eggs-11

A very simple, very special little breakfast.

Give it a go this weekend; I think you’ll find it eggstraordinary!

  • So yummy, I definitely want to try this. Cheese and eggs are my favourite thing in the world, the main reason I could never join this vegan trend! x


    • Rosie

      I’m with you, Lauren! I often wonder if I could do it, but I just don’t think I could bring myself to go vegan.
      I think buying free-range eggs and shopping from farms not factories makes a huge difference though. x

      • Athena

        You don’t need to go full-on vegan, but it’s good to make conscious choices once in a while and prepare a vegan meal here and there. I don’t see it as a “trend” but more as a way to live more sustainably! Fantastic food blogs like Minimalist Baker and Love & Lemons show you that vegan eating not as hard as you think (the vegan mac & cheese is to die for!) Would love to see some vegan recipes on here Rosie, I’m sure you’d nail it!

  • I can never get scrambled eggs right 🙁 I’ll have to give this recipe a go… Hopefully I can up my egg game haha!


  • Looks amazing as always! I love eggs and capers but never thought of putting them together! Definitely trying this!
    Ps I made an amazing courgetti frittata the other day- so addicted to courgetti after getting a spiralizer after getting envy of all your spiralized posts!

  • I’ve been craving this since seeing it on your Snapchat. Looks delicious!


  • I am not sure about the capers but a massive YES to the goats cheese!!!


  • Lauren Lovett

    Goat cheese scrambled eggs are my favorite! Being a California girl, I buy Sonoma eggs and add avocado & Pescadero goat cheese. So good!

  • Toast should NEVER be optional hahaha
    Not a fan of the capers personally but would definitely try the rest of the recipe, it looks delicious!

    Hi – quick tip with eggs – adding salt toward the start makes them leech water (as it does with all foods) and makes the final result not as rich. Adding salt at the very end stops that happening and means you can check for taste too 🙂

  • Brittany McFarlane

    Looks amazing! Question – Is the goat cheese chèvre or goats milk Brie? Thanks!!

  • Rosie Babbra

    Rosie, what kind of bread do you use? Looks delish!
