Exclusively for Gorillas, Ezgi whipped up a simple yet perfect recipe, a classic all-rounder that can be served at any time of the day: her special scrambled egg with an Ezgi twist! Intrigued? Read on for the recipe below.
What you need:
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp of butter
- 1 tbsp mineral water
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- 1 pinch of pepper
- 1 handful of chives (optional)
Crack the eggs into a bowl and add salt, pepper, and mineral water. Grab a fork and whisk all the ingredients into a smooth mix. Next, melt the butter in a non-stick pan on medium heat and pour the egg mass into it.
Take a spatula and gently pull the mass from the edge towards the center of the pan, until the egg begins to solidify. It’s important not to let the egg get too dry - turn off the stove while the egg is still moist, the residual heat is enough to give it its ideal, creamy consistency.
Wanna top it off with a little garnish? Wash the chives and cut them across into thin slices, then sprinkle over the egg.
Voilà! Your perfect scrambled egg is ready to serve!
