How To Make The Perfect Scrambled Eggs, According To Gordon Ramsay

How does a chef like his eggs in the morning?

Scrambled eggs are the king of the breakfast table – but getting them right is no mean feat. While seemingly an easy dish, it actually takes a lot of skill to cook them well: how long should they be cooked for? On what heat level? With which seasonings? Finally, we have some answers. Gordon Ramsay has shared his secrets for mastering scrambled eggs.

The celebrity chef shared his recipe with HexClad Cookware. ‘The secret of any good scrambled egg is stopping the eggs from overcooking,’ he said. ‘We never whisk our eggs before we cook them as it turns the whole thing grainy.’

According to Ramsay, you’ll need six eggs, alongside butter, chives, creme fraiche and seasoning. He begins by placing six eggs in a saucepan with butter, stirring them for 60 seconds on the heat before – crucially – removing them from the hob for 30 seconds. 

Next, Ramsay recommends cleaning down the side of the pan with the spatula. Then, the secret is to ‘fold everything’ together: putting the eggs on and off the heat, and folding them. The full recipe is below.
