It's amazing how an idea comes into one's head. Yesterday I read Robin's great post about Rosamunde Pilcher, and saw the phrase "scrambled eggs for dinner." I've been thinking about them since, so that's what tonight's supper is, along with popovers. If you are interested, the popover recipe is here.
The scrambled eggs recipe comes from a children's book called Mary Poppins In The Kitchen, and they are truly the best ever.
1/2 t. salt
1 twist of the pepper mill
3 T. butter
Break eggs into bowl.
Add salt and pepper.
Beat lightly with a fork. This is really mixing, not beating.
Melt butter in saucepan.
Pour in eggs and stir over gentle heat with a wooden spoon until they thicken.
Do slowly to give eggs time to digest the butter. Result will be creamy and buttery.
Do not overcook unless you like your eggs dry and grainy.
Stir in T. or so of finely chopped fresh parsley. (didn't do this)
Six eggs will make 4 generous servings.
We love these eggs. Butter is the secret. I did exactly as the
recipe said, and they were perfect.
PS This photo doesn't begin to do them justice.
