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.

In a video interview with Tech Insider, he gave the full step-by-step:

"I just don't feel that milk or cream adds anything," says Bourdain. "It's about the egg. You're not making a quiche here, you're making scrambled eggs."

Create texture by pushing the mixture around in a figure-8 pattern.
