Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Easiest thing in the world, right? And sure, anyone can scramble eggs, but Perfect Scrambled Eggs...there are a few tricks of the trade: first, use a nonstick pan. Second, cook over low heat. Give yourself a little time. Third, undercook them! Cut the flame just before you think your eggs are done and let the carry-over heat finish cooking them. Fourth, butter. Lots of butter. That plus a touch of creme fraiche. Fifth, do not season with salt until the very end. Follow these rules and you will never have flabby, rubbery scrambled eggs again.

Ingredients

12 large eggs

4 tablespoons creme fraiche 

4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Optional Additions:

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese

1/4 cup romesco

4 ounces bucheron cheese

Directions

  1. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk until light and frothy and uniform in color. Strain the eggs through a mesh strainer into a bowl. Whisk in the creme fraiche. 
  2. Heat the butter in a large nonstick pan over medium-low heat until it melts. Add the eggs and gently mix using a heat resistant rubber spatula or a wooden spoon until soft curds form.  
  3. Remove from the heat (the eggs will still be somewhat wet), season with salt and pepper and let the heat of the pan finish cooking them for another 1 minute. Gently fold in any of the Optional Additions just as the eggs are coming off the heat, if using.
