How to make the perfect cafe style scrambled eggs

Scrambled eggs can be one of the most satisfying, luxurious meals around if you do them right. Getting cafe quality scrambled eggs is easier than you think and only requires a few ingredients and no milk!

A few key things to remember is to use really fresh free-range or organic eggs and good-quality butter, and always keep the eggs moving slowly over a low heat.

Do this and you’ll get luscious, buttery, creamy scrambled eggs every time.

Series 2


  • 4 fresh free range eggs
  • a knob of butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh bread to serve


Crack four large free-range eggs into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper. Beat the eggs together with a fork.

Put a small pan over a low heat and drop in a knob of butter.

Melt the butter slowly until it’s frothy. While the butter is melting, pop a slice of fresh bread in the toaster.

Pour the beaten eggs into the pan.

Stir slowly using a wooden spoon or spatula, bringing in all the mixture from the edges of the pan.
Your eggs are ready when they look silky and slightly runny (they’ll continue to cook a little even after you’ve removed them from the heat).

Butter your toast and lay it on a plate. Spoon your scrambled eggs on top and finish with a sprinkling of black pepper.
