This recipe is found in the short story 007 in New York, and is a great way to make scrambled eggs.
To serve four, you’ll need:
- 12 fresh eggs
- Salt and pepper
- 5-6 oz. of fresh butter
Break the eggs into a bowl. Beat thoroughly with a fork and season well. In a small copper (or heavy bottomed saucepan) melt four oz. of the butter. When melted, pour in the eggs and cook over a very low heat, whisking continuously with a small egg whisk.
While the eggs are slightly more moist than you would wish for eating, remove the pan from heat, add rest of butter and continue whisking for half a minute, adding the while finely chopped chives or fines herbes.
Note: When I originally read this recipe, I translated the english “chives” into the norwegian “kjørvel”. “Kjørvel”, is not chives, but chervil. While not all that in keeping with the original recipe, it was VERY nice, and can be heartily recommended.
