Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

“Add milk, add cream, do them in the microwave, do them in the pan, lots of butter……”

Many people  have shared with me snippets of worldly wisdom about how to make the holy grail, the perfect scrambled eggs.  Scrambled eggs are terribly easy to make, but, coming across ‘perfect’ scrambled eggs, can be quite a challenge.

Today I am going to share with you the secret of how to make the perfect scrambled eggs. Rosemary Shrager shared this secret with me, at an event she ran at Fodder a couple of years ago. I used to be a cream convert, but, since then I have tried and tested this method, and I concur fully that this is an foolproof way of delivering perfect scrambled eggs. I just love this method!

Scrambled eggs are great as they provide a delicious whole30, paleo breakfast (or snack) in less than 5 minutes. There is no excuse for missing breakfast if you have a pan, and some eggs in the cupboard.

Scrambled eggs are so versatile I regularly combine them with:-

  • smoked salmon.
  • bacon.
  • ham.
  • spring onions.
  • chives.
  • Chili
  • mix of left over veg.

So, without further ado, here is Rosemary Shrager’s top tips on how to make perfect scrambled eggs.

1. You will need a non stick pan and a silicon paddle spoon.

2. Eggs- that’s it, no milk, cream or any other secret ingredients.

3. Season with black pepper and salt.

4. Simply whisk the eggs in a bowl- 2 to 3 eggs per person. (Or as in the Whole30 Programme, as many eggs as you can hold in one hand.)

5. Heat the pan on a low heat, and then add the mixed eggs.

6. Slowly make a figure of eight with the paddle spoon until the egg separates and forms fluffy scrambled eggs!

7. Remember not to rush this process, or deviate from the figure of eight; if you do this will ruin the texture! Beware!

Great tasting food has always been my passion. Obsessed with cookbooks from a young ages I have enjoyed exploring the world of food, recipe by recipe. 2004, aged 20, I was reading Law at University; money was tight, and meals were often made up of vegetables and starchy carbohydrates, washed down with ample alcoholic beverages of choice. Always made from scratch, taste championed calorie content; many delicious creamy pastas and carb-loaded rice and pitta dishes were consumed.Being in my early twenties, I was quite capable of getting away with my not exactly nutritious diet, however following Law School I noticed that I’d put on a few pounds. Being a food lover, I became extremely interested in the power of food; its nutritional value, its healing, health benefits. I read pages and pages of nutritional information; I followed fitness blogs, and read health cookbooks. I then made the decision to turn paleo; I really tightened up my diet and saw amazing result. Most importantly however, eating the right food made me feel great. For the first time, I did not feel bloated, I felt energized, health issues cleared up. My skin was the best ever, I slept well at night. The Paleo Diet involves eating mainly vegetables and protein, with small amounts of fruit, nuts and seeds. Eating Paleo is in essence eating the foods your body was designed to eat. The Paleo Diet mimics the diet that our hunter-gather ancestors ate; pre-agricultural revolution. My love of paleo, has brought me to my new found hobby; CrossFit and a combination of exercise and diet are an unbeatable solution. Paleo Polly is a blog dedicated to my journey. Although I am not a qualified nutritionist, my personal journey has enabled me to make great changes to my life and to my well-being. I would like to share my journey, and my life experiences and guide and assist anyone wanting to make a positive change.

    Shall try this one morning soon, although not tomorrow as thats “Full English” day. Well, 90% of it as the slimming world concept wont allow for the local butcher’s sausages. pffft. But still, everything else is ok, including an extra rasher instead of the sausage. Actually, perhaps i shall do this to go with it??? hmmmm.
    (The only thing i see different from what i already do is the “figure of eight” routine. Has to be worth a try.)
