Follow our recipe to make the perfect scrambled eggs every time. These creamy scrambled eggs go perfectly with the lightly cooked tomatoes and make a delicious breakfast in bed for Valentine’s Day that will certainly get you in your loved one’s good books!

Ingredients

  • 2 large Eggs
  • 2-3tbsp Full Fat Milk or Single Cream
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 slice of their favourite bread
  • A knob of Butter
  • Salt & Pepper to season

Method

  1. Cut the tomato into chunks then add to a large non-stick pan with the butter. Cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the tomato begins to soften but do not brown the butter as this will discolour the eggs. Once the tomatoes are cooked, turn the heat down to a low-medium heat. 
  2. Meanwhile, add the eggs, milk or cream and a little salt and pepper to a bowl and lightly stir with a wooden spoon to combine the ingredients.
  3. Top Tip: do not whisk the eggs or beat them too vigorously – mixing them gently achieves smooth, creamy scrambled eggs. 
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and leave it for 20-30 seconds without stirring. Next, stir the mixture gently with a wooden spoon, folding it over from the bottom of the pan. Let it sit for another 10-15 seconds then gently fold and stir again. 
  5. At the same time, toast the bread in preparation for serving.
  6. Continue with the slow stirring process until the egg mixture is softly set but still slightly runny in places – this way you will end up with deliciously soft scrambled eggs. Once it is at this stage, remove the pan from the heat and set it aside for 20-30 seconds to finish the cooking process. 
  7. Give the mixture a final stir then serve on top of the toasted wholegrain bread immediately.
