The Simple Egg

kanab | May 28, 201907:54 PM     14

If I am going to make scrambled eggs for morning breakfast for our guests, my wife says to all, "oh he makes such great scrambled eggs" and now I am sunk because everyone is going to ask you, "what do you put in it?" and I have to respond, "nothing".

They egg is an incredibly tasty food if you can taste it. It seems almost everyone wants to add something to scrambled eggs and as soon as you do you lose the egg love.

My simple process:
-scramble without whipping. Don't add air just because you can.
-I add a little drizzle of water that helps them cook slow and remain moist
-cook on the lowest heat possible and stand over it like you really love them eggs.
-Stir slowly and cook slowly

and that is all... you will now task egg for maybe the first time. Egg has a lovely taste on its own and does not need distractions like butter or cream or cheese or anything.

If you don't have a stick proof skillet then use a little (very little) splash of canola oil.
