Luxury Scrambled Eggs

"I LOVE these scrambled eggs; this is the only way I'll make them. So rich and creamy, perfect served with bacon for a cold day's brunch. This recipe is from a box set I got years ago called 1001 Recipes for Pan or Wok."

  1. This was so creamy and perfect! I used a big pinch of garlic powder as I didnt have any fresh garlic left. Great recipe!
  2. The addition of the garlic at the start and the cream and parsley to FINISH the dish took scrambled egg to another level. I was careful to just use a small garlic clove as I didn't want to spoil the subtlty of the dish. Excellent thank you.
  3. These were very good! They were very creamy, which is quite different from the more firm scrambled eggs I am used to and the nutmeg really sets them apart. I cut the recipe in half for just me, and tried to remember the conversions to US from Australian but I think I may have added a bit more butter than it called for lol. I also eyeballed the garlic and parsely so may have ended up with more than it stated in recipe as well.
  4. Really nice eggs! I used extra light cream to cut down on the fat, and it still came out very rich and creamy. Next time I might add another pinch of nutmeg. Thanks Droopy Drawers!
  5. These are super!! The nutmeg in the eggs with cream just tastes fabulous!! Worth the effort and little bit of extra calories.


I am a?36 year old aussie girl,I live in a quiet country town, which is only an hour from the City of Adelaide which is the capital of SA. I love it here, I have almost 2 acres of land, so theres plenty of room to move around. I would LOVE to?have my own vegetable garden, but I do not have a green thumb. And am quite unlucky in the growing plants department.?I have 2 young sons aged 14(Jacob) and 10(Phoenix) who are the worlds pickiest eaters, and I'm always on the look out for new and yummy ways to get them to eat good nutritious food. (veggies especially) It is quite a challenge seeing as dad is almost as picky as the kids!!! But he is learning not to be afraid of trying new things. I love baking, pies and cakes mostly, and i have a weakness for roast meats and potatoes, all the good warming comfort food!
