  • Serves: 1
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 3mins

As long as you are ready with your plates and accompaniments, before you begin scrambling your eggs, you will be on the path to success. These can be a simple to spectacular whether it’s a quick breakfast or with the addition of a little smoked salmon they could be a luxury first course to a dinner party.


  • 2 large British Lion eggs per person
  • a little butter (20g)


Whisk the eggs together with a fork. Melt the butter in a pan over a gentle heat and add the eggs, keep stirring with a wooden spoon over a low heat until it starts to thicken and turn creamy, this should take about 3-4 minutes. Take the pan away from the heat while the egg is still quite runny as the heat of the pan will gently finish the cooking. Season with salt and pepper and serve while perfect. Serve in tea cups with toasted soldiers

Top tip: A smaller pan is better if you’re making a small amount, so the egg does not cook too quickly.

Topping and serving ideas: crispy bacon or chorizo; grated cheese chives and crème fraiche; smoked salmon; cooked mushrooms; and pine nuts.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfridayPrawns are on the menu tonight !
