basic scrambled eggs

  • 2-3 free-range eggs
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • small knob of butter

for chilli cheese scrambled eggs

  • 1/2 red chilli finely chopped
  • small handful grated Parmesan/Cheddar/Crumbled feta cheese

for the smoked salmon, Crème fraîche & chives scrambled eggs

  • 50 g smoked salmon roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon Crème fraîche


  • For the basic scrambled eggs, heat a non-stick frying pan.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the salt and pepper.
  • Melt the knob of butter in the pan then add the eggs. With a spatula, push the eggs from the outer edges inwards. Cook for 30 seconds-1 minutes or until cooked to your liking then serve.
  • For the chilli-cheese version, scatter over the chilli when you've poured the eggs into the pan. When the eggs are half-way done, add the cheese and continue cooking until done to your liking.
  • For the smoked salmon version, whisk the Crème fraîche into the eggs then pour into the prepared pan. Add the chives immediately and when the eggs are halfway done, add the smoked salmon and continue cooking until done to your liking. Serve immediately.
