  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.

My thought exactly - 6 tbsps cream or full milk?! For just two eggs?! Yummy but absurd. The I.C.U. where I was laid up back-along served scr eggs for breakfast in their "Heart Healthy" meals regime. They would have had kanipshen fits if they thought I would go off and eat scr eggs with cream AND butter.

I use just enough butter to coat the pan surface - about 1 level dessert spoon - whisk the eggs [it's got to be 3 mediums, surely?] in a bowl with finely chopped mushrooms. As long as you don't cook on a high heat, the mushrooms cook in time with the eggs. Or else bits of sm salmon, off course.

I had forgotten how the most simple foods are most definitely the nicest to eat!
This was really yummy and easy to make. I used semi-skimmed milk instead of cream, but it was still really lovely and just the type of comfort food you need on a cold morning!

First time I've cooked scrambled egg and it came out perfect. Served it on top of a slice of fried bread.

Really tasty and creamy - no need for the cream, full fat milk is perfectly good!

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
