Beat It

Beat your eggs until they're completely blended. Add a little water, cream or milk to make them tender. Use 1 tablespoon of liquid per egg.

Prep the Pan

Next, heat a nonstick skillet over a medium flame and toss in a pat of butter. Make sure the butter coats the pan.

Add the Eggs

Then, pour in the eggs. Pause to let them heat slightly — gentle heat is essential.

Patience Makes Perfect

Move the eggs across the pan like a bulldozer so the eggs cook evenly. This takes a little time, but it's worth it.

Almost Done

As the eggs start to set, add chopped fresh herbs or bits of ham or cheese.

Ready to Eat

Turn your eggs onto warmed plates and dig in!
