Ginger and Olives - Scrambled Eggs a la Gordon Ramsay

Scrambled Eggs á la Gordon Ramsay

My husband and I are currently binge-watching MasterChef season 8. It’s one of my favourite cooking shows. Usually the dishes the contestants come up with are so sophisticated that I couldn’t even guess what they taste like. However, in one of the last episodes we watched, the challenge was to serve perfect scrambled eggs. Up until that point I was fairly convinced that my scrambled eggs were ok. Nothing to brag about, nothing worth posting here but definitely edible. Boy, was I wrong.

Before getting the MasterChef contestants to cook scrambled eggs, he showed them how to and also mentioned that there is a YouTube video of him explaining it. Here it is:

I love watching Gordon Ramsay cook. He’s like a squirrel on caffeine. I also find it refreshing to see that even he burns toast every now and then.

One of the most valuable lessons I learned from this video is not to season scrambled eggs before they are (just about) done. I had no idea this affects the colour of the eggs. Also, I always used to scramble the eggs before adding them to the pan. Basically, I did everything wrong. ;)

Unsurprisingly, eggs á la Gordon Ramsay were amazing. The texture was perfect – light, fluffy and creamy. I can only recommend this and am already looking forward to next weekend!

Ginger and Olives - Scrambled Eggs a la Gordon Ramsay
Instructions
  1. Add the oil to a non-stick frying pan and place over medium heat. Add mushrooms and tomatoes. Lightly salt the mushrooms.
  2. If you're not cooking with gas, heat up the stove top so it's hot when you're ready to go.
  3. Pop the bread slices into the toaster.
  4. Add eggs and butter to a medium sized pot. Do not whisk. Place the pot on the hot stove top and stir constantly. When you see the eggs start working, take the pot off the stove for a few seconds and keep on stirring. Place them back on the stove, don't stop stirring. When the eggs are just about done take them off again. Keep stirring and add 1 tsp of creme fraiche. Season with pepper and salt and sprinkle with chives.
  5. Place the scrambled eggs on the toasted bread and serve with mushroom and tomato on the side - serve immediately.
