    Delia's Slimmer's scrambled eggs

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 10 minutes 10 minutes

    Serves: 2


    Equipment: You will also need a Delia Online/Silverwood Little Gem 'Sauce' Pan (heavy gauge aluminium) or similar

    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    2 tablespoons milk
    1 level tablespoon snipped chives
    Salt and freshly milled black pepper


    First the pan goes onto a medium heat. 

    Season the lightly beaten eggs with salt and pepper. Then add the milk to moisten the pan, whirling it around the edges.

    Add the eggs and, using a pointed wooden spoon, briskly stir backwards and forwards through the liquid egg. Keep on scrambling until three-quarters of the egg is a creamy, solid mass and a quarter is still liquid.

    Now add the chives and continue to scramble, then remove the pan from the heat and continue scrambling until no liquid egg is left. Serve immediately, as the egg will continue to harden.
