2tbspmilk, any fat % (optional, Note 1)
2grinds black pepper
1 tbsp / 15gbutter(or margarine or oil)
4slicesbread, toasted & slathered with butter
Use a non stick skillet or well seasoned cast iron pan (about 25cm / 10") and a rubber spatular (or flat edge wooden spoon).
Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
Melt butter over medium heat (Note 1), then pour egg in.
Wait 5 seconds, then start leisurely pushing the rubber spatula back and forth in long strokes, and all around the skillet edges, to push the set egg out of the way and let raw egg run onto the skillet to cook. After 30 seconds or so, start adding some folding action too.
Cook for 60 seconds in total until you have a pile of soft, custardy scrambled egg folds ("curds") and no raw egg leaking on the edges of the pile.
Take it off the stove when it's still a bit undercooked for your taste.
Gently push /fold the eggs for another 10 seconds - it will finish cooking with residual pan heat - then slide onto hot toasted crusty bread slathered with butter.
Sprinkle with extra pepper then devour immediately! For a touch of garnish, look no further than an 80's style sprig of curly parsley. 👌🏻
1. Milk - optional, makes the eggs a bit more creamy but you can still make wonderful scrambled eggs without.Cream? Some people enjoy cream instead of milk - I find it unnecessarily rich but it's an option (same amount as milk - or halve).Water? With older eggs (as some grocery eggs can be) are already watery and added water can exacerbate the wateriness. Milk works better, more consistently.2. Homemade toastable bread options:
