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 have scrambled eggs is the Gordon way. Chef Gordon Ramsey, that is. They are simply delectable, delightful, delicious 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 life hasn’t been the same since!
Chef Ramsey doesn’t use any special ingredients or equipment, it’s just about the process of cooking the eggs that is different. (Quality helps!) The approach is simply to crack the eggs into a sauce pan, add in some butter, turn on the heat and begin to stir. Constantly. 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?This video shows exactly how Chef Ramsey 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!
