Scrambled Eggs
Total time: less than 15 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

Simple, you'll say! But do you really know how to make them?

Ideally, scrambled eggs should be prepared in a water bath or double boiler. It takes longer, but success is ensured. If you want make them in a skillet, the heat should be low so that the eggs stay creamy. Overly high heat tends to dry them out.

In the past, they were traditionally served in a timbale or with little puff pastry triangles.

For 1 serving

- 3 eggs
- 25 g (5 tsp.) butter
- salt and pepper
- 25 ml (5 tsp.) cream (optional)
  1. Butter a bowl.
  2. Break the eggs into the bowl; add a few little pieces of butter, salt and pepper.
  3. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water; mix the eggs with a spatula to the desired texture. Beat gently to avoid the formation of lumps when cooking.
  4. Remove from the heat. Finish by stirring in a few pieces of butter and a drizzle of cream.

Scrambled eggs are served plain, although they pair very well with some fresh chives.

Breakfast / brunch
As a side, they go wonderfully with gravlax or smoked salmon.
