Nutrition Facts
  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) dried fine herb blend
  • Pinch pepper

Instructions

  1. Whisk eggs, yogurt, fine herbs and pepper in small bowl.
  2. Spray non-stick 8-inch (20 cm) non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat.
  3. Pour in egg mixture and immediately reduce heat to medium-low. As eggs begin to set, gently move spatula across bottom and side of skillet to form large, soft curds. Cook until eggs are thickened and no visible liquid egg remains.
