- Chef Gordon Ramsay says the mark of a good chef is whether they know how to make proper scrambled eggs.
- After trying out 10 different ways to make the classic breakfast food, Ramsay’s method is the only one I’ve gone back to.
- Ramsay adds crème fraîche, salt, pepper, and chives for extra flair and piles the eggs on top of toast drizzled with olive oil.
- The soft scramble is custardy, velvety, and filled with flavor.
Gordon Ramsay may be famous for creating beautiful and luxurious meals, but the one dish the highly decorated Michelin-starred chef, TV personality, and “MasterChef” says he uses to judge a new cook is rather simple: scrambled eggs.
“If they can make the perfect scrambled egg, you know they know how to cook properly,” Ramsay said in a video posted on YouTube.
When making the dish at home, I’d always beat my eggs in a bowl first and then scramble them in a pan over medium heat — and to be honest, I thought the finished product looked kind of gross.
But after trying Ramsay’s method, I don’t think I’ll ever make scrambled eggs any other way again.
