I LOVE these scrambled eggs; this is the only way I'll make them. So rich and creamy, perfect served with bacon for a cold day's brunch. This recipe is from a box set I got years ago called 1001 Recipes for Pan or Wok.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and crush garlic. Break the eggs into a large bowl, whisk until light and frothy. Season well with salt and pepper. Stir in the nutmeg.
  2. Melt the butter over a low heat in a small heavy saucepan. Add the garlic and cook gently for about 1 minute, or until softened but not browned.
  3. Add the eggs to the pan, stir rapidly with a fork for 3 - 4 minutes or until almost scrambled.
  4. Stir in the cream and parsley. Remove from heat and continue to stir until eggs are just set. Allow to stand for about 1 minute,
  5. Serve on toast if desired.
  6. Enjoy.

This was so creamy and perfect! I used a big pinch of garlic powder as I didnt have any fresh garlic left. Great recipe!

The addition of the garlic at the start and the cream and parsley to FINISH the dish took scrambled egg to another level. I was careful to just use a small garlic clove as I didn't want to spoil the subtlty of the dish. Excellent thank you.

These were very good! They were very creamy, which is quite different from the more firm scrambled eggs I am used to and the nutmeg really sets them apart. I cut the recipe in half for just me, and tried to remember the conversions to US from Australian but I think I may have added a bit more butter than it called for lol. I also eyeballed the garlic and parsely so may have ended up with more than it stated in recipe as well.
