The humble egg: Try this slow scramble for a creamy delight

Published

Let’s first get the bad PR out of the way: Eggs won’t raise your risk of stroke, heart attack or heart failure, according to the Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter.

Eggs got a bad rap during the last 20 years because it was thought that they significantly raised levels of cholesterol. Current research shows that saturated fat is the primary culprit in heart disease risk, according to Live Science.

Eggs are high in cholesterol (186 milligrams total with 184 of that in the yolk), but they’re low in saturated fat (1.6 grams in the yolk).

People who eat a healthy diet, rich in fiber, vegetables, and fruits, can safely eat an egg each day, writes dietitian Katherine Tallmadge.

That brings us to a very common recipe: scrambled eggs. You see them in different forms depending on who’s cooking:
Flat as a pancake, lumpy and rubbery, or the dreamy creamy.

Here’s how to make the perfect scrambled eggs that are soft and creamy.

The key is cooking them long and slow, according to The Kitchen. Set the heat on a very low setting and plan to let the eggs slowly transition from liquid to solid over about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir frequently to make the eggs end up with small curds that have the texture of ricotta cheese.

Low and slow creamy scrambled eggs
2 or more large eggs
1 teaspoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
1 Tablespoon cream
chopped herbs (optional)

Warm your pan on the stove over low heat before putting anything in it. Then put in the butter and let it melt. Whisk eggs in a bowl, vigorously enough that the whites and yolks are mixed and frothy.

Add salt, pepper, and cream. Whisk to mix. Add herbs if desired.

Pour eggs into the pan in a thin layer and cook slowly for 10 to 15 minutes.
