Skill Shop #1 : Prefect Creamy Scrambled Eggs

Welcome to the new Series i like to call SKILL SHOP. Here i’ll cover through short videos, basic skills that will make you look like a rockstar in the kitchen. Nothing to elaborate, always simple, easy, useful and necessary skills people think are a usually a given, but once confronted, realise, damn, i should of learned how to do that. Now people will see *gleam of hope in my brown eyes*: “damn, i should of watched that The Fat Kid Inside video”.

So SKILL SHOP #1? Eggs of course. Scrambled Eggs to be exact. How do they get so creamy and unctuous, but each time your try it, they are either too dry, too raw, or have weird consistencies (long flaps, small shards, gu…). Well here you go: *tatttaaaaaaaa*

I know, i know, eggs again, well its the easiest thing to cook, but the most horrible thing to eat when done wrong, so start getting it right, most restaurants in know, don’t.

Mind Blown (no not really)

      Kinda looks to wet for me but im more for the fluffy rather than creamy. I like to let it solidify a bit take it off the heat and push to the center but that’s just me. Your ingredients sound good. I don’t think I’ve ever had sour cream with scrambled eggs before. Ill try it next time. Thanks for the vid.

      Can you achieve that creamy texture without using oil or butter? If not, only at a very minimal amount? I had my gall bladder removed a year ago and oils, or anything fatty is really a no-no. Are there alternatives for oil/butter?

      This is how I scramble my eggs as well! Although I do away with the sour cream. And if I get bored, I add some dried herbs.

    Reply
      1. Erwan May 10, 2012 at 4:01 am

        try fresh herbs instead :) dried herbs have a weird consistency when not cooked for long

      I just had the yummiest scrambled eggs thanks to your blog!!!! I had no grapeseed oil so it was evoo for me. This is how I’ll be cooking scrambled eggs from now on. :)

      1. Erwan May 10, 2012 at 4:02 am

        next time just use olive oil :) not extra virgin! it’ll taste better and be heatlhier too!

        1. Amira Stefanie May 10, 2012 at 2:33 pm

          just olive oil is healthier? and i thought all this time (hogging the remote control just to watching all the food channels) the “extra” in EVOO meant extra healthy. ?_?

        Reply
          1. Erwan May 28, 2012 at 3:19 am

            it is, but EVOO is not supposed to be heated

      There’s nothing worst than a cafe/brunch place stuffs up their scrambled (or poached) eggs.

      Btw, inspiration from Gordon Ramsay’s scrambled eggs?

        i feel you.
        Nope, not really, this is the real technique for scrambled eggs, so not surprising most chefs use it

          Luckily for us in Melbourne, chefs know how to scramble/poach eggs. Great cafe culture.

      Hi Erwan! What’s a good substitute for sour cream? Would it taste different if I use a little of heavy cream instead? Thanks! :)

      1. Erwan May 28, 2012 at 3:26 am

        if you dont have sour cream, just dont use any cream at all. you can do without it

      Before, I used to have a healthy lifestyle but then again working in the wee hours of night was not much help. I settled for fast and not-so-good foods! Thanks to your SKILL SHOP, I’ll try to get back on my old productive self: healthy and in good shape! From now on, I’ll stick to this! Sometimes HEALTHY. Sometimes FATTY. Always HAPPY. BALANCE! -> Nice one, Erwan! Lookin’ forward for more SKILL SHOP videos. Again, gratitude for making a difference! CHEERS! ;^)

          Sorry to offend. I’m not that much of a “well-seasoned foodie” got used to commercialized, mcdonalds-like firm breakfast scrambled eggs. I tried your authentic recipe this morning – fail. still firm, maybe i’ll try to lower heat.

          I need more practice.

      hi mr erwan..
      emm i was wondering, what is the name of the ingredient that you put into the scrambbled eggs?…the white thing..what is that?
      and also what is the name of the green leaves that you use after you put the white thing? last question, you did sprinkle something on the scrambled eggs before you put some pepper..what is that?
      i’m sorry for asking too many question..just wanna get a bit of clarification about the ingredient so it’ll be easier for me later.
      thank you :)

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
