Scrambles are a blank slate that you can adapt to every season, varying the veggies to use whatever you have on hand. More lunch-like than breakfasty, this version begs for a salad and buttered toast. The recipe comes from the Birchwood Cafe Cookbook (University of Minnesota Press, $29.95).


  • 8 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh dill
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 small bulb fennel, cored and chopped (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup shelled fresh peas or frozen peas, thawed
  • 3 -4 radishes, sliced (1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, dill, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. In a large skillet (nonstick, if available), melt the butter over medium heat. Add the fennel and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the peas and radishes; cook 2 to 3 minutes more or just until crisp-tender. Add the eggs. Cook, without stirring, until mixture begins to set on the bottom and around edges. With a spatula or large spoon, lift and fold the partially cooked egg mixture so that the uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until egg mixture is cooked through, but is still glossy and moist. Remove from heat. Stir in feta. Serve immediately.
