Creamy scrambled eggs to the rescue. Tired of overcooked rubbery scrambled eggs, try this method. Eggs are mixed with half and half and cooked low and slow for a smooth custard texture. Add rosemary and capers for a delightful savory breakfast.
I’m of the opinion that most people, and yes this means restaurants, overcook scrambled eggs. How many times have you ordered scrambled eggs only to receive a somewhat rubbery dry experience.
I blame the pan … and the operator behind that pan. And I feel everyone should learn to recognize soft scrambled eggs.
What Are Soft Scrambled Eggs
Soft scrambled eggs are eggs that are starting to curdle and still show some signs of uncooked egg. They look a little wet. In other words, they’re not quite “set”.
But as soon as you remove the pan from the heat, fold the eggs a couple of times, the heat retained in the pan will continue to cook those eggs. Give it a try.
Low heat is also a factor in creating smooth creamy scrambled eggs. And with this recipe, we’re really talking low heat. Let’s take a look.
Slow Cooked Scrambled Eggs
For this recipe, we’re taking low and slow to a whole new level. 20 minutes low and slow to be exact.
This recipe calls for 1/4 cup of cream or half and half, creating a custard type situation. Here’s how it works.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together 4 eggs and 1/4 cup of cream or half and half. I like half and half for this recipe.
- Stir in capers and rosemary.
- Heat an omelet pan over medium high heat. A lower burner works best here as opposed to a power burner that puts out a large amount of heat.
- Add 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter to the pan.
- When the butter is melted and sizzling, add the eggs.
- Let the eggs sit on this higher heat for about 1 minute. Or until the eggs show a slight sign of setting around the edges.
- Reduce the burner heat to its lowest setting and let the eggs steep into a creamy goodness.
- This may take 20 minutes.
- Only stir the eggs about three times. And don’t really stir them. Using a spatula, very gently push the eggs around in a bull-dozer motion.
- Once the eggs show a small amount of uncooked liquid on the top, remove them from the heat.
- With your spatula, gently fold the eggs over on themselves just a couple of time.
- Sprinkle with fine grated Parmesan Cheese.
- Serve immediately.
