Slow Food

Anyone who follows my current addictions on the right has probably noticed "slow scrambled eggs." I wanted to post it just before the weekend, when I hope things slow down a bit for you, so you too can discover their marvelousness. Hmm. Lusciousness? I think they are amazing.

Have three eggs at room temperature. (I've tried making this with fewer eggs: disaster). Beat them with implement of choice. Add a pinch of salt. I also like to add chives and tarragon. Over your pilot light or very low heat melt one tablespoon butter in a nonstick skillet. Pour your eggs in, and with the heat on low, continuously stir the eggs, scraping the bottom of the pan. (I like to use a silicon spatula). Slowly, slowly they will turn from liquid to a light custardy texture. And then they're ready to serve.

AH, ask and you shall be answered...


  1. I've never heard of such a thing. I hope I have the patience to try this.

  2. I can hardly wait to give them a try. Maybe even tonight.

  3. Oh gosh, master. Well, I've just been given 6 fresh off the nest eggs, so why not try.

  5. CO: It's going to take me awhile to recover from the kicking I inflicted on myself for missing National Pie Day--

  6. You can always make amends for your transgression, RC, by eating a pie! Besides, it looks like you have company when it comes to overlooking national holydays: our local goddess. I better not say more, else there bee more self-flagallations.
