My mother taught me how to make scrambled eggs at an early age. It is still one of my favourite gluten free breakfast treats, You don’t have to save it for breakfast though. How about scrambled eggs for lunch or supper too?
Although quick and easy to cook, there is one thing to keep in mind. Don’t use a high heat unless you want rubbery eggs! Keep it at a low to medium heat and exercise a little patience if you want a creamy finished result.
If you don’t have a jug or bowl to mix your eggs in don’t panic, you can put them directly in the pan and combine them together with the butter. Be careful as if you mix too vigorously, or you may splash the cooker top.
Should you add milk or not? It it totally up to the gluten free chef in your house. If you prefer a creamy egg then feel free to add milk or a milk substitute, but it is not essential.
Turn your ring on at a medium heat. Add the butter to the pan and heat until it is melted.
Crack the eggs into the jug and whisk together with the fork or whisk. You can add a little splash of milk if you wish at this point, as it does give creamier scrambled eggs. You will notice that I didn’t add milk in the video, this is because I am lactose intolerant.
I like to season my eggs at this point, with salt, freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of mixed herbs. Some cooks prefer to leave the seasoning till the eggs are cooked. If liked, you can also stir in a teaspoon of french or wholegrain mustard at this point.
Once your butter has melted, tip the egg mixture into the pan and start stirring with your wooden spoon or spatula. Stir vigorously and continually if you like your eggs to be creamy. If you prefer to have more texture you can stir every now and then.
Continue cooking for a couple of minutes, until the curds come together and the eggs set.
Take the pan off the heat just before the eggs are done to your preference. This is because they will continue to cook in the pan for a few moments.
Serve with buttered toast or try some of the variations below.
