Perfect Scrambled Eggs??

March 30, 2012

Watch Gordon Ramsay make PERFECT scrambled eggs! I was able to recreate it myself (see photos below).

Ok, so you’re wondering what I could possibly say about scrambled eggs that you don’t already know!  And two days ago, you would have been correct to wonder!  But now that I’ve seen this video, I absolutely must share with you Gordon Ramsay’s PERFECT scrambled eggs

If you think you already know how to make perfect scrambled eggs….think again!  Apparently (according to Gordon Ramsay), even many of the most experienced chefs don’t know how to make good scrambled eggs!  This is definitely not your typical scrambled eggs.

As you’ve probably heard before, the key is don’t overcook the eggs.  But, this isn’t all that he does – with a few simple techniques, such as not whisking the eggs and not melting the butter prior to heating them, he creates scrambled eggs that are much creamier and much tastier

I’ve tried to summarize the technique below, but I recommend you also watch the video (although ignore the part about bread if you’re on a low carb diet). 

Who is Gordon Ramsay?  For those of you unfamiliar with Gordon Ramsay, he is a fairly famous chef from Britain (there’s some good food in Britain, I promise!).  He’s most famous in the US for the TV show, Hell’s Kitchen, in which he shouts and swears a lot (a lot!) in reaction to the mistakes made by aspiring chefs at the Hell’s Kitchen restaurant!  I personally prefer the British TV show, Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, where he visits various struggling restaurants and attempts to turn them around with varying degrees of success.

How do the eggs taste?  Delicious with a very creamy texture and taste.  I also like how the chives add an extra dimension to the flavor.  Can’t wait to try it with some smoked salmon like Gordon suggested in the video.  Let me know how you like it!

Very Creamy. I have tried a ton of different ways to cook scrambled eggs, including Cook’s Illustrated. Never before have I had them this creamy. Thanks for this. I would never have known I could cook a recipe from Ramsay!!

I feel the same way, actually! I had tried other recipes from Ramsay, and they had been much more problematic, but this one just works so well.

I probably didn’t cook the eggs long enough as they were still a little runny when I added the cream and the chives (from the garden!). So a little too runny but tasted great! Thanks

I found that I was so used to eating overcooked eggs that I was unprepared for eating scrambled eggs like that. If they’re of a liquid consistency, then that’s undercooked, but if they are just really soft and creamy, then I think that’s how scrambled eggs are supposed to be enjoyed. I envy your herb garden, Rod! I just started buying some pot plant herbs to put out on my balcony, so I should hopefully be enjoying some of that soon.
