Scrambled Eggs

  Scrambled egg is not a single recipe but a school or tradition of recipes. The following simple recipe makes scrambled eggs for one. The quantities can be multiplied, in which case cooking will take just a little longer.
Scrambled Eggs

Ingredients :

  1. 2 eggs
  2. dash of milk
  3. salt and pepper
  4. large knob of butter

Instructions :

Beat the eggs with the milk and season with the salt and pepper. Melt most of the butter in a heavy pan. When it is foaming but not yet brown add the egg mixture. Cut across it with the flat of a spatula so curds start to form, remove from the heat while still slightly liquid, but creamy. Add the remaining butter and stir gently.
Butter some hot toast and pour the eggs on top. It tastes better if the toast is cut into ninths like a noughts and crosses board before topping with the eggs (that, at least, is how Mum used to do it).
Those who find scrambled egg slightly bland can of course mix it with a generous blob of tomato ketchup.
