  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion, garlic scapes, and ham in the melted butter until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Beat the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl; pour into the skillet and cook, stirring continually, until the eggs have nearly set, but are still slightly moist. Add about half the Cheddar cheese; cook and stir until the eggs are completely cooked, about 5 minutes. Top with the remaining Cheddar cheese to serve.

Yum! Reduced the salt and used olive oil instead of butter. Turned out great!

Made these for breakfast this morning and we both loved it which says a lot since I don't eat scrambled eggs. These are so much better than plain scrambled eggs. Thanks for this delicious dish.
