Ideal Scrambled Eggs (with Chives!)


  • 3 eggs
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Butter
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • Chives


Crack 3 eggs into a bowl and whisk with a fork until just combined. Melt a butter pat in a skillet over medium heat, once melted, add eggs. Let eggs sit for about 30 seconds, then stir with a wooden spoon to break up the curds. Continue to stir constantly until eggs are almost set, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add salt, another pat of butter (1/2 tbsp, or to your preference), heavy cream, and some chopped chives. Continue to cook, stirring, for another minute or two. Season with freshly ground pepper and garnish with chives!
