Simple additions to scrambled eggs?

I'm looking for some really easy to way to make simple scrambled eggs better. Sometimes I use cheese, other times not. But basically, what are some herbs that can be added that would add just a little bit of uniqueness to make the taste more interesting? I'd prefer dried herbs just for the convenience but I would use fresh too if it makes a big difference.

You might give some chopped chives a try, I often add some sauted mushrooms and some marjoram (fresh,chopped) to the eggs..Even some parsley and a little crisp fried pancetta make eggs wonderful..I know you asked for herbs but thought I'd shareseveral of the things we use.

My DH adds a couple of tablespoons of sour cream to 6 eggs, plus a little S&P, and does not overcook them.
The sour cream is very complimentary to the dish.
If you want to get bolder, try substituting French onion dip for the plain sour cream.

Of course there's always a world of things...smoked salmon, crumbled bacon or sausage, chopped ham, chives, sauteed peppers, onions or mushrooms, any kind of grated or crumbled cheese...you name it...that you can add to scramble eggs.

Both my grandma's used to fix scrambled eggs and brains. Calf brains were the favorite, but they used what they had.
Are you up for that?

Almost any leftovers I have in the fridge are fair game when it comes it scrambled eggs. This morning it was angel hair pasta, so I ended up with a kind of frittata. A bit of sorrel or spinach is a nice addition. When fresh herbs are plentiful in the summer, I like chives, thyme, parsely, or savoury.

Today I made scrambled eggs for my DH and added some chopped ham, green onions, fresh parsley and mushrooms. He loved them!

Scrambled eggs are also good with corn in them. I usually use about 1 big spoonful of corn per egg (if using canned corn make sure it's drained). Yum!
