Got chives? We’ve got recipes. Bright green chives are some of our favorite herbs, because they’re easy to grow and add beautiful flavor to recipes. What do chives taste like? They’re like a mild combination of onion and garlic flavor. Chives pair perfectly with scrambled eggs, and go especially well with potatoes (sour cream and chive potato chips, anyone?).

Here’s a list of our top chive recipes to make with this tasty herb! You’ll see them paired with eggs or made into a bright green oil. They’re great for making creamy chive dip, or sprinkling over veggie side dishes. Really, there’s nothing chives can’t do! Let’s get cooking.

Eggs and chives are the perfect pair! This 5-ingredient eggs with  make a simple breakfast, brunch, lunch, or light dinner.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 chive stems with chive flowers (chive flowers optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 multigrain English muffin


  1. In a small skillet, heat the olive oil over medium low heat. Roughly tear the chives and flowers (if using) into 2 to 3-inch pieces and place them in the olive oil to heat for 30 seconds. Crack the eggs into the skillet, add a sprinkle of kosher salt, and continue cooking over medium low heat until the egg whites are cooked but the yolk is still runny, about 2 to 3 minutes (at 1 minute, shake the pan gently to distribute the eggs).
  2. Meanwhile, toast the English muffin. When the eggs are done, slide them onto the English muffin halves and eat with a knife and fork.
