Creamy Make Ahead Scrambled Eggs for a Crowd


  •  24 large eggs
  •  1 cup milk, cream, or half and half
  •  2 and 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  •  1 teaspoon black pepper
  •  1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  •  1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  •  1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  •  1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  •  1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  •  1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  •  1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  •  green onions or chives, to garnish (optional)
  •  shredded cheddar cheese, to garnish


  1. In a blender, add eggs, milk, and all the spices (salt, pepper, garlic, onion, mustard, seasoning salt, cayenne.) Make sure you have a big blender! Mine went over the 4 cup capacity at around 20 eggs and then I was too scared to add more so I just whisked them in. You could of course just skip blending and whisk them all in a bowl. Whatever sounds easier to you!
  2. Melt 1/2 cup butter in a 12 inch high-sided skillet over medium heat. When it is nice and hot, pour in the egg mixture. Lower the heat to medium-low. You have to cook eggs sloooow.
  3. Use a spatula to occasionally scrape the bottom of the pan. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the eggs are starting to set.
  4. Then add the cream cheese that has been cut into chunks. Carefully fold in the cream cheese and let it melt away into your dreamy creamy eggs.
  5. When the eggs have cooked (cooked meaning you’re ok sneaking a bite) but are still quite wet, add the eggs to a crock pot and turn the crock pot to warm. (If there is no warm setting, the low setting will do.) Put the lid on.
  6. Stir the eggs every hour or so. You can keep them warm in the crock pot for about 4-5 hours. If you leave them in too long eventually they will become rubbery, so it’s best to eat them within 4-5 hours.
  7. When serving, top with cheddar cheese and green onions.
