Scrambled Eggs Rui

We were up at Tina’s folks house this weekend for a little pre-holiday holiday party. Her brother cooked us up some of his special scrambled eggs the next morning. A highly recommended preparation for some simple, yet decadent breakfast fare. This recipe is not recommended if you are currently counting calories.

Scrambled Eggs Rui

6 eggs
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp sour cream or creme fraiche
salt and pepper

1. Heat the butter in a medium saucepan, cracking the eggs into the pan while it melts.
2. Stir the eggs slowly with a spatula, and as when they being to cook, take the pan off the heat and continue to stir. Keep stirring while alternating the pan on and off the heat, keeping it just hot enough to keep cooking.
3. When they’re getting close to done, stir in the sour cream. Then add salt and pepper to taste.

    It’s not that caloric, unless you’re eating it all by yourself.

    6 eggs = 420 calories
    2 T butter =204 calories
    2 T sour cream = 46 calories

    Total = 670 calories

    If you split with two other people (2 eggs each) then you’re only getting 223 calories, which isn’t all that bad for breakfast.

    Gordon Ramsay has the exact same recipe:

    I recommend adding the chives like he does, and in fact doing the whole shebang (tomatoes and mushrooms).
