Queen Favorite Scrambled Eggs Recipe
- 3 organic (brown) eggs
- 1 tablespoon milk
- Sea salt, to taste
- 1 tablespoon butter or you can use extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
- Pinch ground nutmeg
- Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
- Snipped chives and kippers to serve (optional)
- Whisk the eggs and milk in a bowl until well combined. Add salt to taste.
- Heat the butter or olive oil in a small frying pan over low–medium heat. Add the eggs and turn the heat down to low, moving them around the pan slowly with a spatula so they don’t stick to the bottom.
- Just before they are starting to set, add the lemon zest, nutmeg, and extra salt, if desired, and stir.
- Serve immediately, garnished with pepper and chives, if using.
Interestingly, the eggs used must be brown and not white. This is because the Queen love and prefers the taste of brown more.
