These scrambled eggs are a GAME CHANGER.
They are FLUFFY and CREAMY and SIMPLE and everything you could ever want in a scrambled egg!
My whole life I have been over-thinking scrambled eggs! How do you scramble your eggs? Before I was shown the light, I used to whisk my eggs in a bowl with milk and then pour them into a greased pan, let them sit a bit, then break them up, turn them over, cook until set, and then eat.
There’s no pre-whisking these eggs. There’s no milk. The only ingredients in these new life-changing fluffy scrambled eggs are 1) eggs and 2) butter.
The other secret? The constant STIR.
First, melt the butter in a sauce pan (or a small pot).
Crack the eggs directly into the pan and then break them up with a spoon. (Do NOT use my old method of whisking the eggs before pouring them into the pan!)
Constantly stir your eggs over low heat. Take the pan on and off the heat to ensure a slow cook. Stir stir stir!
Your eggs should begin to look like soft fluffy scrambled eggs. Keep stirring!
All that beautiful stirring over low heat will yield fluffy, light, flavourful, LIFE-CHANGING scrambled eggs.
Serve them over of a piece of crisp toast slathered with creamy goat cheese. Top with fresh chives and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper.
I unfortunately cannot take credit for this method of cooking fluffy scrambled eggs. These are Gordon Ramsay’s eggs, and he even has a delightful how-to video you can watch.
I DARE you to try scrambling eggs this way. And I promise you that you will never go back to your old ways ever again! (I haven’t!)
