My Favorite Scrambled Eggs
These eggs aren’t the only thing that’s scrambled.
My brains…. also pretty scrambled right now.
As far as I see it, there are two solutions to the scrambled brain mess that I’ve got going on inside my head right now: a whole weekend worth of sleep or a bag of fun size Snickers bars.
Aaaand Snickers it is… but first, let me show you what I eat morning, noon and night: scrambled eggs.
Are you picky about how you cook your eggs? Maybe a little? That’s no crime… everyone likes their eggs a different way. I’m more of a dry scramble kind of girl. Here’s my step-by-step guide to eggs for one.
Start with good quality eggs. Fresh medium or large eggs from the farmer’s market are mighty fine.
Break three eggs into a bowl.
Beat eggs lightly with a fork.
Melt just over a tablespoon of butter in a pan over low heat. Add eggs and stir eggs immediately and constantly with a wooden spoon.
It may take 3 to 4 minutes for the eggs to become just set but still creamy. At this point add a scant tablespoon of heavy cream, a small pat of butter and a generous pinch of salt. Continue to stir.
When eggs are scrambled to your liking, remove from the pan, top with a touch more salt and fresh ground pepper, and serve with buttered toast. I garnished my eggs with nasturtium petals (they’re pretty), but chives are also lovely.
