Perfect Scrambled Eggs with Iberico Ham

Scrambled eggs can be one of the most luxurious eggs around if you remember a few key points: always use really fresh free-range or organic eggs and great butter, and always keep the eggs slowly moving around the pan over a low heat. Do this and you will get perfect, soft scrambled eggs every time.

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and add the additional yolk (if using). Add a pinch of sea salt and black pepper and also a dash of cream or whole milk. Beat together with a whisk.
  2. Warm two plates in a very low temperature oven.
  3. Place a non-stick frying pan over a low heat and melt the butter. Swirl the melted butter around the frying pan to coat and then pour the egg mixture into the frying pan.
  4. Using a wooden spatula, gently stir the eggs around the pan until soft and still slightly wobbly.
  5. Remove from the heat and serve onto two warm plates and top each with 4 small slices of Iberico ham.
