How to make perfect scrambled eggs May 13, 2020
Are your scrambled eggs failing to turn out the way you would like or somewhat different every time you make them – sometimes watery, other times rubbery? Admittedly, they can be a hard thing to master, so here is a quick how to make scrambled eggs guide and video to help you make them perfectly, every single time!
Scrambled eggs, cooked well are utterly soft, creamy and delicious. You can serve them simply, on some nice crusty toast or, if you are looking for something a little more special, why not try some of our other recipes which really take things up a notch. So sleep in, settle in and serve up your favourite cafe brunch at home this weekend!
How to Make Scrambled Eggs
The secret to this recipe lies in the cooking of the egg and, more importantly the gentle sweeping of the egg in the frypan. Be patient and you will be rewarded in the form of creamy, moist eggs!
Knob of butter
Salt & Pepper
Small handful of fresh chives
2 slices of sourdough bread
1. GET PREPPED
Break the eggs into a bowl, add the milk, salt and pepper, and gently whisk.
2. GET COOKING
Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat, swirling it to coat the bottom. Pour in the eggs, and leave for 20 seconds.
3. STIR GENTLY
Now, use a wooden paddle or spatula (with a flat edge) to sweep the eggs around the pan. As the cooked egg builds into fluffy curds pushed by the paddle, the uncooked egg pools over the hot surface of the pan ready to be swept up as well; so that neither overcook. Do one last sweep of the paddle to bring it together, then remove from the heat, as the eggs will continue to cook in the heat of the pan.
4. SERVE UP
Divide the eggs between two slices of sourdough toast, scatter with chives and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Once you have the basics nailed, you can really go gourmet! For some other ways to serve your perfectly scrambled eggs, take a look at some of these scrumptious recipes…

We all know that a weekend brunch would not be complete without a good slather of avocado. You can serve it sliced or smashed, depending on how you like it. Which ever way it will add another level of creaminess and indulgence.
Scrambled Eggs & Smoked Salmon on Sourdough
Your tried-and-true ‘eggs on toast’ gets a major, brain-boosting upgrade with the addition of a thin slice of smoked salmon and a good sprinkle of salt & pepper. We opted for sourdough bread, but feel free to swap for multigrain or wholegrain if you’d like. A little drizzle of lemon will really help to kick things off too!
