Herbed Cream Cheese Scrambled Eggs

Recipe found at 

Feel free to play around with the herbs you use. Mainly, just keep in mind that you
want tons of herbs and free onions in the cream cheese. Think herbs with cream cheese
rather than cream cheese with herbs.
8 oz / 225 g cream cheese, room temperature
4 tablespoons chopped herbs - equal parts thyme, tarragon, oregano
6 green onions, with greens, chopped
1/3 cup (big handful) chopped chives
fine grain sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3 eggs, well whisked
plenty of toast, for serving
 Place the cream cheese in a medium bowl, add the herbs and mash 
with a fork until the herbs are evenly distributed. Add the green onions, 
most of the chives, a generous pinch of salt, and mash until those are 
incorporated as well. Set aside. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-heat. 
Add the eggs and let them set a bit. Use a spatula to fold them over 
themselves, let them set a bit again, and repeat until they are nearly 
cooked to your liking. Remove from heat, add 2 dollops of the 
cream cheese (roughly a tablespoon each) to the skillet, count to ten, 
then stir a bit more to work the cream cheese into the eggs. 
Serve sprinkled with the remaining chives, salt and pepper to taste, 
and toast on the side. Serves 2, feel free to scale up with 
more eggs if you have more people to feed.
