Step 1: Beat It
Beat your eggs until they're completely blended. Add a little water, cream or milk to make them tender. Use 1 tablespoon of liquid per egg. Add a pinch of salt.

Step 2: Prep the Pan

Next, heat a nonstick skillet over a medium-low flame and toss in a pat of butter. Make sure the butter coats the pan.

Step 3: Add the Eggs
Then, pour in the eggs. Pause to let them heat slightly — gentle heat is essential.

Step 4: Patience Makes Perfect
Move the eggs across the pan like a bulldozer so the eggs cook evenly. This takes a little time, but it's worth it.

Step 5: Almost Done
As the eggs start to set, add chopped fresh herbs, or bits of ham or cheese.

Step 6: Ready to Eat
Turn your eggs onto warmed plates and dig in! Watch our how-to video for more.
