Onion and Mushroom Scrambled Eggs


A recipe inspired from a local brunch restaurant. The Boursin® cheese gives the omelet an incredible creaminess. A great brunch/breakfast dish. I prefer a blend of mushroom varieties and I like to serve this with toast.

  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 ½ tablespoons Italian seasoning

  • 5 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons garlic and herb cheese spread (such as Boursin®)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms, onion, and garlic until onion is browned, about 15 minutes. Season with Italian seasoning.

  2. Beat eggs with garlic and herb cheese spread in a bowl. Mixture will be slightly chunky. Season with salt and black pepper.

  3. Pour eggs in skillet over mushroom mixture; cook and stir until eggs are nearly set, about 1 minute. Fold mozzarella cheese into eggs until just melted, about 30 seconds.

Cook's Note:

If using cream cheese instead of Boursin(R) you may want to add more garlic to make up for the lack of seasoning. I have also used heavy cream as a replacement before, with good results.
