Cheese & Chives


I woke up this morning to a husband who was preparing breakfast in the kitchen.  Having lots of chives that he has grown and takes pride of place in our herb garden on our window sill, he used them on these eggs he cooked.

A hint of onioness with the mature hit of cheddar cheese all over a delicious creamy and soft buttery yolk!  I could eat these eggs over and over.  Probably will as we have lots of chives to use up.


Hope you’re all having a fantastic day!


1 large egg
Handful of mature cheddar grated
Sprinkling of fresh chives
Olive oil


Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan on a low heat.  Crack the egg with yolk in tact.  Cover and cook for a minute or so.  Depending how runny you want your egg

Top the egg with cheese and chives.  Cover again and cook until cheese has melted


Serve on buttered whole wheat toast

  1. What a nice husband to fix you breakfast! I love chives, but haven’t used them on eggs. I am going to have to try that. How great that you are growing your own. We didn’t do a garden this year, and I miss it!

  2. You could wake me up in the middle of the night for a simple fried egg: fried mushroom or maybe some ham. but a sprinkle of cheese is certainly my favourite. What a beautiful, loving way to be woken 🙂
