Patience for best scramble

For great-looking and great-tasting scrambled eggs, you need a little patience and these easy techniques.

•Beat your eggs until they’re completely blended. Add a little water, cream or milk to make them tender. Use 1 tablespoon of liquid per egg.

•Prep the pan. Heat a non-stick skillet over a medium flame and toss in a pat of butter. Make sure the butter coats the pan.

•Pour in the eggs. Pause to let them heat slightly – gentle heat is essential.

•Patience makes perfect. Move the eggs across the pan like a bulldozer so the eggs cook evenly. This takes a little time, but it’s worth it.

•As the eggs start to set, add chopped fresh herbs or bits of ham or cheese.

•Turn your eggs onto warmed plates and dig in.
