    The recipe

    2 eggs

    1 Tbsp/15 mL milk

    1 Tbsp/15 mL butter

    Over a small bowl, hit each egg firmly with a knife.

    Open the shell and let the egg slide into the bowl.
    Discard the shells.

    Add the milk to the bowl.
    Whisk together until the mixture is well blended.

    Heat a skillet over medium heat.
    Put the butter in the skillet.
    When it has melted and is beginning to bubble, pour the egg mixture into the skillet.

    Wait until the eggs set a bit, and then give them a good stir with the fork.

    Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the eggs are cooked just the way you like them.


    • Use a non-dairy milk substitute in place of the milk.

    Ideas for making this recipe your own

    • Add some spices to the egg mixture before cooking it. How about parsley, or tarragon, or dill?


    • If you prefer your eggs less firm, use about 2 Tbsp/30 mL more milk - or more. Experiment until you have found the perfect scrambled eggs formula. Then memorize your own personal scrambled egg recipe.
