    Whisk Together Eggs In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, chives and tarragon. Season with salt and pepper.

  • 3.

    Heat Butter & Olive Oil In a medium-sized skillet over medium-heat, melt the butter and olive oil.

  • 4.

    Cook Eggs When the butter’s foam begins to subside, add the egg mixture. Turn the heat to medium-low. Allow the eggs to cook, undisturbed for about 2-3 minutes. Then, using the spatula, push the eggs around the pan about every 5 minutes. Continue until the eggs are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Slowly cooking the eggs gives them a creamier texture. Eggs can also be cooked on medium heat, stirring almost constantly for 4-7 minutes until cooked through. This will give the eggs a firm texture.

    Add Feta Cheese & Serve Mix in the feta cheese during the last minute of cooking. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
