A delicious way to start your day.


  • 2 Eggs

  • 0.33 cup Cream

  • 1 Pinch of Salt

  • 10 g Butter


  • 1.

    Place eggs, cream and salt in a bowl and whisk together.

  • 2.

    Melt butter in a non-stick frying pan over high heat, taking care not to burn the butter.

  • 3.

    Pour in egg mixture and cook for 20 seconds, or until gently set around the edge.

  • 4.

    Stir the eggs with a wooden spoon, gently bringing the egg mixture on the outside of the pan to the centre.

  • 5.

    The idea is to fold the eggs rather than to scramble them.

  • 6.

    Leave to cook for 20 seconds longer and repeat the folding process.

  • 7.

    When the eggs are just set (remembering that they will continue cooking as they rest), turn out onto a plate and serve with hot toast.


Note: If you are making more than two serves of scrambled eggs, make sure you cook separate batches so as not to crowd the frying pan.

These eggs are divine, and I agree, who wants to argue with a qualified chef, not us novice cooks thats for sure. If you don't like the sound of cream, DON'T MAKE IT!!

Cream? This is the sort of recipe the Graeme "the Galloping Gourmet" Kerr used to push in the '70s... until he had a heart attack. Try regular milk instead folks. Go nuts & throw in some parsley or chives for colour.

I add a bit of grated cheddar cheese to the mixture before it cooks completely(still runny in the pan). Works wonders(Taste not waist)

The only way to make scramble eggs. With Cream, fantastic, with milk, boring.

Who cares, Mr Knutz. Hes awesome, unpretentious, and makes the best scrambled eggs!

If you use milk, you're missing the point

there's a massive difference in the texture if you use milk - boring standard scrambled eggs. Cream lifts them into another dimension. You don't have to eat this everyday you know...
