Soft scrambled eggs with lobster

Gordon Ramsay’s scrambled eggs recipe is the best and only recipe you’ll ever need.

We all grew up eating some version of scrambled eggs. Some made with milk, some with butter, some over cooked, some under cooked. No matter how you grew up eating scrambled eggs, we were ALL wrong about the “right” way to make them.

As it turns outs, the only way to make scrambled eggs is the Gordon way. Chef Gordon Ramsay, that is. They are simply the best scrambled eggs you will ever eat.

The process of making scrambled eggs

You are probably thinking, “What could HE possibly do to scrambled eggs that could make them THAT much better?” Trust me, I thought that too. Until I watched the video (below), read some reviews, and broke out my sauce pan and spatula. About 6 minutes later, I was speechless, and breakfast life hasn’t been the same since.

How to make Gordon Ramsay’s scrambled eggs

This video shows exactly how Chef Ramsay makes the most delicious scrambled eggs. In just a few minutes you will learn how to change the way you cook eggs forever and for the better!

This recipe does not require any special ingredients or equipment, it’s just about the process of cooking the eggs that is different. The approach is simply to crack the eggs into a non-stick sauce pan, add in a few pats of cold butter, turn on the heat and begin to stir constantly and vigorously, on and off the heat. The result of this technique is creamy, soft, silky scrambled eggs. You won’t believe the difference.

The basic recipe is plenty good enough as it. But why not take things up a notch? Once you get the technique down, there is no stopping where your creativity can take this dish. I have prepared them with fresh tomatoes and mushrooms, lobster and chives, smoked salmon with dill, and more. The question is, where will your creativity with ingredients take you?

Pro Tips:

  • Use a silicone spatula and a non-stick sauce pan
  • The quality & freshness of any ingredient always matters- eggs are no different.
  • Trust the recipe! At first, you will think they are not done, but they will keep cooking and set once they are off the burner.

  1. I can’t get enough of these scrambled eggs. I want them all the time. We even bought a special silicone spatula just for our scrambled egg mornings at our house, which has become every weekend. Just make them!

  2. I just add a small amount of water, salt, and pepper to mine. The secret is not to leave the eggs too long, continue stirring. The eggs will keep cooking when heat is turned off so take them off when there is still a little liquid left. Perfect scrambled eggs.
