Making scrambled eggs au bain marie sounds ridiculous. But it really does make incredibly creamy scrambled eggs.
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp pesto
- 1 tbs milk
- 1 tbs cream
- 1 tsp butter
- 2 slices bread, toasted
Serves 1 as part of the Budget Challenge
Heat water in a sauce pan. Place a bowl on top, melt the butter in the bowl, coating the sides as well.
Combine the eggs, pesto, milk and cream in a cup. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir well with a fork. Pour it into the hot bowl.
With a spatula, fold the sides over every 20 seconds or so. When the eggs start being more solid, fold every 10 seconds. It should take about 4 minutes to scramble the eggs this way. Especially in the beginning it goes slowly. But it is worth it!
Serve on toast.
