These recipes are eggsactly what you needed. 😉

recipe and photo’s compliments of espresso and cream
You Will Need:
- Serves 1 Hungry Husband
- 1/2 tablespoon butter
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk t ogether the eggs, milk, salt and ground black pepper.
- Once butter is melted and slightly browned, reduce heat to low. Add egg mixture to the skillet.
- Using a rubber spatula, stir eggs constantly, not allowing any one part of the egg to cook on the skillet for too long. The idea is to cook the eggs low and slow, which prevents large curds of egg and results in an ultra creamy texture. This process requires patience, so give it the time it requires. It may take 10 to 12 minutes total.
- Continue to cook the eggs until they are cooked through bust still slightly moist and glisten slightly. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
