Versatile scrambled eggs

versatile scrambled eggs

  • 8 eggs
  • 125 ml water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 10 ml sunflower or olive oil
  • 45 ml fresh herbs of your choice, like origanum, parsley, dill or thyme

You can add 1 of any of the following:

  • 125 ml grated cheddar or mozzarella cheese
  • 1 slice feta, crumbled
  • 170 g tuna in water, drained
  • 125 ml frozen peas or whole kernel corn, rinsed and patted dry
  • 125 g mushrooms, sliced and pan-fried in a very small amount of oil

Serving size: 4 to 6
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

  1. Beat eggs with water, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat and add the egg mixture.
  3. Allow the eggs to start setting before stirring too much. Then gently stir egg with an egg lifter, to ensure that all the raw egg is cooked. Don’t over-mix the eggs and don’t make the pan too hot, otherwise, the eggs can separate quite easily. Reduce heat if necessary.
  4. If you want to add another ingredient from the list above, add this after stirring the eggs for the first time.
  5. Gently stir scrambled eggs until just cooked and serve immediately. Sprinkle with herbs and black pepper and serve with a slice of whole-wheat or brown toast per person and tomato slices, if preferred.


  1. For a delicious, yet easy seasoning, stir the chopped herbs into the egg mixture, before adding it to the pan.
