Description

How to make the best scrambled eggs. Made simply with eggs, fat (butter or ghee) and sea salt. Perfect by it self, on toast or in a sandwich.


Scale

Ingredients

4 pasture raised eggs

sea salt to taste

1 tbsp ghee or butter


Instructions

Cast-iron skillet method:

To begin, crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk to combine. Season with a pinch of salt.

Put the cast iron skillet on the stove over medium-high heat. Once the pan starts to smoke a little, turn the heat off and add the ghee to the skillet. Once the ghee is melted, add the eggs to the pan. The eggs will start to set at the bottom right away, so immediately take a spatula and gently swipe around the edges of the pan to start creating soft curds. Repeat this step while pausing to allow the eggs to cook, but being quick enough to make sure they don’t overcook. Just continue gently pushing/folding the eggs to form curds. When you have soft scrambles with big folds and the eggs are just set, you are done, that will happen very fast about 1-2 minutes. Remove the eggs from the pan and serve immediately. 

Other non-stick pan method:

If you don’t have a castiron or using it is too intimidating, you can use your favorite non-stick skillet.

To begin, whisk the eggs in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt. 

Melt the ghee in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Once the ghee starts to bubble a little, add the eggs to the pan. Once you see the eggs start to set around the edges, take a spatula and gently swipe around the edges of the pan to start creating soft curds. Repeat this step while pausing to allow the eggs to cook, but being quick enough to make sure they don’t overcook. Just continue gently pushing/folding the eggs to form curds. When you have soft scrambles with big folds and the eggs are just set, it is ready. This will take about 2-3 minutes. Remove the eggs from the heat and serve immediately.
