Chef’s Recipe: How to cook scrambled eggs, MasterChef style

8th Nov 2018

We’re not teaching you how to suck eggs … just how to scramble them. But then this is scrambled eggs, the quick and easy breakfast favourite, in delicious Gordon Ramsay Masterchef style:


  • 6 cold eggs
  • 15g butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Crème fraîche
  • Chives


  1. Crack 6 cold eggs into a deep saucepan.
  2. Add the butter. For smaller batches, use a 2-to-1 eggs-to-butter ratio.
  3. Put the pan on high heat.
  4. Stir continuously with a rubber spatula—don’t whisk—making sure to scrape the bottom of the pan.
  5. After 30 seconds, take the pan off the heat. Keep stirring. After about 10 seconds, put back on the heat. Repeat for 3 minutes.
  6. In the last minute, season the eggs lightly. For extra creamy texture, stir in 1 tsp of crème fraîche.
  7. Plate and garnish with chopped chives.
