Ingredient 1 Five medium eggs
Ingredient 2 A dash of milk
Ingredient 3 A good pinch of chopped fresh parsley, or basil, or coriander, or thyme
Ingredient 4 One tablespoon butter
Ingredient 5 Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Step 1 Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the milk, salt and pepper (and the pinch of chopped herbs, if you’re using them), and beat them all together with a fork.
Step 2 In a heavy-based pan, melt the butter over a medium heat until it starts to foam.
Step 3 Pour in the eggs, and start stirring at once with a fork or a wooden spoon. Keep stirring constantly as the eggs start to come together.
Step 4 The question now is: how runny do you like them? As the eggs begin to come together, start turning down the heat – they’ll keep cooking in the warmth. Keep stirring until you’ve got them just how you like them, and serve out on to plates at once. Bear in mind, the eggs at the bottom of the pan will be firmer than the eggs you serve first – just in case some people prefer them one way or the other.
Step 5 Garnish with an extra grind of black pepper and tuck in.
