Superb scrambled eggs

A lovely plate of scrambled eggs.

Our chef Alex was taught how to make scrambled eggs by his Mum, this is her recipe and now he’s passing it on to you. Watch and learn how to do the special ‘soft curls’ technique!


  • Two free range eggs
  • Splash of double cream
  • A slice of toasted and buttered bread – we’ve used sourdough
  • Large knob of salted English butter


  • Crack the eggs and whisk with a good splash of double cream.
  • Season with salt.
  • Melt the knob of butter over a medium heat ensuring it coats the bottom of the frying pan.
  • Add the egg and cream mixture to the pan.
  • Let the mixture slowly coat the bottom of the pan. Once it starts to cling to the pan start your ‘soft curls’ (see video for instructions!).
  • Take it off the heat slightly before it’s finished so that your eggs aren’t overcooked.
  • Gently let the eggs fall onto the plate with your sourdough (or other bread) toast.
  • Finish with a grind of black pepper.
