Everyone knows how to make scrambled eggs.
You just whisk up some eggs, plop them on a pan, and — bam! Scrambled eggs, the best single-ingredient breakfast there ever was.
But according to chef, travel show host, and general badass Anthony Bourdain, there's a way* to make scrambled eggs that's better than the others.
Start off by heating your pan — but not too much.
Crack fresh eggs on a flat surface and into a bowl.
Add salt and pepper into the mixture — but no water or any kind of cream.
Beat the eggs until you get a "ripple of white and yellow throughout."
Add a generous slice of butter to your hot pan and let it melt, or "foam."
Place the eggs in the buttered pan and let them cook for a bit.
Create texture by pushing the mixture around in a figure-8 pattern.
Finish cooking when you have "something fluffy, airy, rippled, with a nice textural note when you taste the egg."
And there you have it — a guide to making the perfect scrambled eggs, and at least five new ways to describe eggs. To watch the whole video, check out the Tech Insider video below:
