Ever find yourself staring blankly into the fridge?  Yeah, me too, probably at least once a day.  When I catch myself zoning out like this, it means a snack is in order.  (Yup, sometimes it means I’m bored…but generally it’s snack time.)  And I usually want something quick that can be grabbed out of the fridge and munched right away.


Eggs are by far my favorite go-to fridge food.  On the weekend I hard-boil a few and keep them in the fridge for quick snacking during the week, but if I have a couple minutes to spare on a weekday I’ll take the time to make them into something a little more special.  Fried eggs are always a winner and so are poached, as well as omelets (veggie-stuffed like this one is the way to go!).  But my new favorite way to enjoy eggs is scrambled the French way.

To make French-style scrambled eggs, heat a pat of butter in a nonstick skillet over low heat.  Beat however many eggs you want in a bowl with a splash of milk or cream, then add them to the skillet.  Cook the eggs (stirring constantly) until they thicken up into a creamy, almost custard-like texture consisting of soft curds (this will take about 10 to 15 minutes).  Turn off the heat and stir in half a pat of butter.  Sprinkle fresh minced chives on top along with a pinch of salt and pepper, and serve immediately.  Definitely not the most health-conscious recipe for eggs, but so good for a little weekend morning indulgence.  (Or the perfect late-night snack!)

In honor of LG’s stunning new refrigerator (it’s a Super-Capacity 3 Door French Door Refrigerator with Door-in-Door…and did I mention it’s gorgeous?), they’re featuring a food fight between four popular go-to fridge foods:  Yogurt, Juicebox, Mustard, and Diet Soda.  It’s a fun idea – each food is competing to be in the new fridge.  You can participate and vote for your favorite go-to fridge-food here.

For those quick trips to the fridge, the Door-in-Door is a magnetically sealed section of the refrigerator that allows you to access the door bin without opening the entire refrigerator.  Due to the Door-In-Door feature, less cool air escapes when the easy access compartment is opened, keeping cold air in the rest of the fridge, where it matters most. Whether it’s a refreshing drink, condiments or a healthy snack, the Door-in-Door is the ideal space for quick access to your family’s go-to foods such as canned or bottled drinks, salad dressings and condiments.  Learn More Here

    I never just sit down to eat eggs. I bake with them but I don’t eat them. I grew up eating them but I just don’t make them to eat. They’re such a perfect source of protein and your little quail eggs are sooo pretty!

    So true, Faith. Eggs are MY go-to snack as well. Love the French way….but chives are wonderful with eggs no matter what. And biscuits. :)
    I’ve always had chives growing in my garden or even in my kitchen as long as I can remember.

    Eggs are a staple for me. If I’m out of eggs, I panic. I love a good fried egg or poached egg with my veggies or on a burger. But, I’m sort of famous around here for my scrambled eggs. They are a perfect food.

    Like Angela I used to get panicky if I didn’t have eggs on hand. That potential problem was eliminated once we got our backyard hens 3 years ago. They make wonderful, funny & productive pets (although our cats are good for warming laps). So, eggs continue to be a staple item for us. My fave way is poached, on a pile of steamed kale or chard, with Sriracha. Mmm
