This recipe for Garlic Scrambled Eggs is a recipe I grew up with. My mom would make this often. Sometimes for breakfast, other times for dinner. It is basically eggs scrambled with some garlic and seasonings with some chickpeas tossed in for good measure!

Garlic Scrambled Eggs with Chickpeas

What is for breakfast in your house?  In our house it is sometimes Blueberry Pancakes (for me).  And, other times without blueberries, (for Grumpy). I might get adventurous and make them healthy, with different fruits, and sometimes I veer off the path of the cake and make Invisible Banana French Toast or these Waffled French Toast Sticks! However, this week, it was Garlic Scrambled Eggs with Chickpeas!

Kicking Mom’s Garlic Scrambled Eggs up a Notch!

Maybe others have eaten Garlic Scrambled Eggs this way, but I haven’t ever come across it online!   With Easter being here this weekend, I thought what better way to think about breakfast than with eggs?!  

I took my mom’s recipe and doctored it up to suit my tastes more and this is what I came up with.  Garlicky, slightly spicy goodness.  Have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!  Have it in a wrap with a little salsa and call it good!  If you try this, do let me know what you think! 

How do you eat your eggs

Garlic Scrambled Eggs with Chickpeas are probably my favorite way to eat eggs. I grew up loving my Nanny’s eggs fried in butter, but when I make them for myself, this flavor packed Garlic Scrambled Eggs with Chickpeas recipe is my favorite.

My children LOVE poached eggs. Their favorite ways to eat an egg is on a Fried Green Tomato Eggs Benedict or this Thanksgiving Eggs Benedict. I love the mature palate of my sons!
