  • Currently 4/5
Serious Eats
Serves 2
1 tbsp butter
1 pinch salt
4 eggs
1/4 cup cream
1. Melt the butter over high heat in a nonstick pan.
2. Whisk the other ingredients together in a bowl, pour them into the pan and - summon your courage.
3. Do nothing for 20 seconds, except maybe cross your fingers.
4. Then stir very slowly with a wooden spoon, folding the rim of the egg mixture toward the center. Don't churn away like a cement mixer.
5. Pause for another 20 seconds, then repeat the gentle stirring-and-folding process.
6. Take the pan off the heat, allowing the residual heat in the pan to complete the cooking.
7. Finally, give the eggs one last easy swirl. Here's Johnny's description of what you will have wrought: "The eggs have a soft, mousselike texture, not the slightest bit rubbery, with unusually large curds. Not surprisingly, they are divinely creamy, but they are also as light as the breath of an angel."
