  1. i was treated to breakfast in bed this morning by my boyfriend, who made this recipe (with added smoked salmon) having watched a video of gordon ramsay making it. it was 100% the best scrambled eggs i have ever had! i think there's an important factor missed out here in the instructions, you are supposed to keep stirring the eggs and the butter over high heat until they just begin to solidify, and then remove them from the heat and keep stirring. a few moments and then back on the heat, and then off, etc. a few times, and then when it looks almost done remove completely from heat and add the creme fraiche to stop them from over cooking. just thought i'd chip in with that one! and they're incredible with smoked salmon! p.s. watch this link to see him make it, my explanations are probably not very clear... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1SM73Qi1BQ
  2. I learned this method from one of the Fortnum & Mason tearoom chefs. It makes the creamiest, silky scrambled eggs. Doesn't necessarily make for easy clean-up since the butter is incorporated into the eggs.
  3. I tried out Gordon Ramsey's scrambled eggs which i saw him cook on the Master Chef series last night, June 29,2017. No one around here even knows what creme fraiche is much less where to purchase it. I added sour cream instead of the creme fraiche. Turned out wonderfully well. Thank you for the lesson Mr. Ramsey. You are a hit in our home.
  4. I've never made eggs like this, but this is not my go to recipe! I usually scramble them in a bowl and then add to the pan, but that's just dirtying more dishes. This is the way to go!
  5. Leave it to Gordon Ramsey to come up with some new pretentious way of making scrambled eggs. But of course I had to try it and weren't these the best scrambled eggs ever. I also tried using plain whole Greek yogurt in place of the crème fraiche and it worked just as well with a few less calories. Choose a good yogurt, some can be watery, I recommend Fage.


  1. So I used sour cream instead of creme fraiche, and it turned out fine.
  2. I'm about to start [ in the next hour] this scrambled eggs and will be using double thick cream .Wish me luck.
  3. Substituted whole plain yogurt for crème fraiche.


I find cooking very relaxing and love to experiment. My food hero is Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall; the idea of growing your own veg and rearing your own animals in a free-range, organic way is very appealing. <br> <br>When not cooking I work from home for a tech company in Finland, love animals, old cars, travel and good restaurants! <br> <br>How I rate recipes: <br> <br>5 * Recipe worked perfectly, no substitutes needed and family raved about it. <br>4 * Recipe worked well, a few substitutes were made to suit taste. Family loved it. <br>3 * Recipe worked fairly well, a few changes to technique or substitutions were needed. Family liked it. <br>2 * Recipe didn't work particularly well. It was edible but wouldn't cook again. <br>1* Recipe didn't work at all. It wasn't edible and we wouldn't cook again. <br> <br>This is Izzy, she's our 1973 EMPI GTV Conversion <br><IMG src=http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n242/justemma/beetle-1.jpg> <br> <br> <br><img src=http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n242/justemma/darwinfish.png>
