Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay may be known to be mean, but he also makes a mean meal of scrambled eggs as well. I saw his recipe at lifehacker which also comes with a youtube video demonstrating how he does his scrambled eggs. I tried the recipe and it sure was a winner – the scrambled eggs are of a nice velvety and creamy consistency. He uses interesting techniques such as only whisking the eggs in the pan and seasoning them only at the end – who would have guess that these are the secrets to perfect scrambled eggs? ;)

Gordon Ramsay’s Perfect Scrambled Eggs Tips

  • Whisk the eggs only when they are in the pan.
  • Give the eggs a break from the heat once they get going, so they can combine and avoid drying out.
  • Season the eggs right at the end. If you season them in the beginning, the salt will break down the eggs and they may turn watery.

Perfect Scrambled Eggs Recipe

Give the eggs a break from the heat once they get going, so they can combine and avoid drying out.

Serves: 2

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 8 mins

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp crème fraîche (may substitute with any type of cream or milk)
  • 20 grams butter
  • chopped chives
  • salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Break eggs in a saucepan and add butter. Do not whisk the eggs or season them at this point.
  2. Turn on the stove and break the eggs in the pan using the spatula.
  3. Keep stirring the egg mixture, and as soon as it starts to thicken a little, get it off the heat and continue stirring.
  4. Alternate between stirring the eggs while they are on and off the heat, repeat a few times (about 3-4) until the scrambled eggs are of the right consistency (creamy and fluffy).
  5. Take the eggs off the heat, mix in crème fraîche to cool it down, season with salt and pepper and fold in some chopped chives.

Noob Cook Tips

  1. The original recipe calls for 3 eggs per person, but I reduce it to 2 eggs per person to suit my preference.
  2. I had my scrambled eggs with parmesan toast. To make this, mix equal amount of butter and powdered parmesan cheese, spread the mixture over my baguette and toast it in the oven until warm.
