Sweet and Spicy Scrambled Eggs

Confession: I never owned nor understood sriracha until a month ago. I still have never even bought the stuff; my roommate bought the bottle (sorry I’m using it all, Meredith). Now I can’t stop putting it on top of every dish I make, and I’m constantly looking up others I could use it in. This sweet/salty/spicy combo with sriracha, brown sugar, and soy sauce has been my one and only craving lately. Top it off with fresh cilantro and the crisp bite from green onions, and it’s absolute perfection.

I got home from the gym dying for protein today, and I made Beth from Budget Bytes’ Dragon Noodles. They were delicious, but I needed more food afterwards. I wanted to eat the same thing, but had no more noodles! So I got a little creative and put my own spin on it by using the same flavors to make sweet and spicy scrambled eggs. This dish would make a great breakfast, lunch, or late night snack. And it can be easily doubled, tripled, quadrupled… heck, make it for a crowd! Oh, and it takes less than 5 minutes. You’re welcome.

Serves: 1

Sweet and Spicy Scrambled Eggs


1 tbsp butter
pinch red pepper flakes
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sriracha
1 tsp brown sugar
2 eggs
1 green onion (scallion), finely chopped
cilantro leaves, finely chopped


Combine the soy sauce, sriracha, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium-low heat, and sprinkle in red pepper flakes. Add the sauce mixture to the pan. Once the mixture is hot, crack the 2 eggs into the pan and scramble until the desired done-ness, but don't let them dry out. Top with green onion and cilantro leaves. Enjoy!
