Chef's BBA

Unlike an omelet where the eggs are vigorously beaten, the scrambled eggs are only diluted (just pop the yolk and mix a little).

The scrambled eggs are always cooked over low heat for a runny consistency or more cooked, according to taste, but always soft. Succulent nature, scrambled eggs go well with many vegetables (spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, ratatouille ...). For extra creaminess, a dash of crème fraîche or grated cheese; for an oriental touch, soy sauce, a few leaves of pak-choy, sliced ​​black mushrooms and you're done!
