Scrambled eggs make for a quick and easy protein-packed meal, anytime of the day. To cook perfectly creamy scrambled eggs make sure you use fresh eggs (preferably free-range or organic), cook over a low heat, keep your eggs moving in the pan and don’t let overcook them. Your eggs are ready when they still look a little runny and will continue to cook once off the heat.


  • 4 fresh eggs

  • 1 Tbsp butter

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1.

    Lightly whisk the eggs with a fork and season with salt and pepper

  • 2.

    Heat a small frying pan over a low heat, add butter (don’t let the butter brown)

  • 3.

    Pour in the eggs and leave for about 10 seconds without stirring, then stir with a wooden spoon and gently fold the eggs in from the edges of the pan

  • 4.

    Let sit for another 10 seconds, then stir and fold again

  • 5.

    Repeat until the eggs look soft and still runny in places. Remove from the heat and serve immediately


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...
