Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Serves 2 • Preparation time: 5 minutes • Cooking time: 5-10 minutes

5 medium eggs

a dash of milk

a good pinch of chopped fresh parsley, or basil, or coriander,or thyme (optional)

1 tablespoon butter

salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cost per portion: 
  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add the milk, salt and pepper (and the pinch of chopped herbs, if you're using them), and beat them all together with a fork
  2. In a heavy-based pan, melt the butter over a medium heat until it starts to foam. Pour in the eggs, and start stirring at once with a fork or a wooden spoon. Keep stirring constantly as the eggs start to come together
  3. The question now is: how runny do you like them? As the eggs begin to come together, start turning down the heat - they'll keep cooking in the warmth. Keep stirring until you've got them just how you like them, and serve out on to plates at once. Bear in mind, the eggs at the bottom of the pan will be firmer than the eggs you serve first - just in case some people prefer them one way or the other
  4. Garnish with an extra grind of black pepper and tuck in
