Hot out of the skillet at Thomas's Ham & Eggery in Carle Place are scramblers, or fancied-up scrambled eggs. They're similar to omelets but lots creamier, since their fillings are scrambled right in.
A new menu insert lists five kinds, at $9 each. The Popeye, three eggs with spinach, onion, bacon and Jack cheese; the Italian with prosciutto, fresh basil, plum tomato and Fontina cheese; the “Texan with bacon, sausage, onion, pepper and Cheddar, the Lox and CC with chopped nova, scallion and cream cheese.
Then, there's the Mexican, which I shared. Made with chorizo sausage, jalapenos and Jack cheese, it was sumptuous and spicy -- in fact, sensational. Also included: home fries and toast. Owner Tom Koukoulas said he will, on request, do a junior scrambler using two eggs, for $7.
