Method

  1. Lightly whisk the eggs, cream and a pinch of salt together until all the ingredients are just combined and the mixture has one consistency.
  2. Heat a small non-stick frying pan for a minute or so, then add the butter and let it melt. Don’t allow the butter to brown or it will discolour the eggs. Pour in the egg mixture and let it sit, without stirring, for 20 seconds. Stir with a wooden spoon, lifting and folding it over from the bottom of the pan. Let it sit for another 10 seconds then stir and fold again.
  3. Repeat until the eggs are softly set and slightly runny in places, then remove from the heat and leave for a few seconds to finish cooking. Give a final stir and serve the velvety scramble without delay.

Really creamy, delicious! Works well with some feta thrown in near the end so it softens but doesn't melt entirely.

I made this for myself, delicious recipe.
Creamy scrambled eggs is what it says and came out as. I have to say though it did not take me 15 mins. It took me about 5 mins altogether.

Easy and in only a couple of minutes quality scrabbled eggs. I've also tried adding mixed spice as seasoning and works well as doed black pepper.

i meant olive margarine *

it has too much sat fat, might just put olive oil instead and reduce the cream

I just beat 2 egss together with a bit of salt, and cook them in a small saucepan with a knob of butter. Just keep stiring the mix - it takes less than a minute!

I remember scrambled eggs as horrible rubbery and barely edible but this method is fantastic! Loved the result and it only took 2 - 3 mins in a pan, who would cook eggs in a microwave? :-)

Beat eggs and add all ingredients into a Pyrex Measuring Jug,
Stir well, put in Microwave on Low or Simmer Heat for 1/2 minute, stir well and cook for further 1/2 minutes till the eggs are softly set and slightly runny in places, then remove from the heat and leave for a few seconds to finish cooking. Give a final stir and serve the velvety scramble without delay.
Saves stannding over them on the hob.
