Part 1 of 13

Prepare your ingredients

Gather your ingredients and set them up in your cooking area. Because scrambled eggs cook very quickly—three and a half to four minutes max—it won’t be easy to slow down once you begin cooking.

5 large eggs
2 tablespoons cold butter
5 sea urchin tongues
1 teaspoon crème fraîche
1 teaspoon finely chopped chives or spring onions
Freshly ground black pepper
Shaved white truffle or truffle oil, optional

Part 2 of 13

Crack eggs into the pan

Lightly tap the eggs on the edge of your nonstick pan, lift, and crack them open. Two to three eggs are recommended per individual.

Did you know?

A nonstick pan gives a much greater yield on making scrambled eggs and provides a nice comfort that nothing will burn, as opposed to a stainless steel pan.

Part 3 of 13

Add butter

The butter will make the eggs nice and creamy.

Part 4 of 13

Cook on medium heat

Now it’s time to cook your eggs!

Part 5 of 13

Turn and whisk your eggs with a spatula

The spatula is the secret to making sure your eggs are cooked evenly. Turn the eggs every time from the top of the pan to the bottom, making sure to remove all the eggs and butter from the bottom of the pan and scrape down the sides as well.

Did you know?

A spatula is preferable to a wooden spoon, as it properly lifts the eggs off the pan and doesn’t let any go to waste.

Part 6 of 13

Alternate taking the eggs off and on the heat

Cooking your eggs too quickly will make them go runny. Be sure to give the butter a chance to melt nicely by taking the eggs on and off the heat: on for 90 seconds, then off for 20 seconds. Repeat for approximately four minutes.

Part 7 of 13

Add one sea urchin tongue

Mix in one sea urchin tongue and chop it up with your spatula for a rich and creamy texture.

Part 8 of 13

Add in remaining ingredients

Add a teaspoon of crème fraîche in with your chives whilst seasoning with salt and pepper. Fold into the eggs and sea urchin until everything is folded in together.

Did you know?

Seasoning the eggs before they’re cooked will cause them to get runny, go gray, and essentially ruin the dish.

Part 9 of 13

Taste your scrambled eggs before plating

This is the most important step. Be sure that the flavors complement one another, and add more seasoning if necessary.

Part 10 of 13

Plate your eggs with more sea urchins

Add a sea urchin tongue at the bottom of the bowl for a rich, creamy, and delicate surprise. Top with eggs—the heat from the eggs will cook the sea urchin on the bottom. Add one atop the eggs to truly elevate your scrambled eggs.

Part 11 of 13

Add white truffle

Take some white truffle and lightly grate close to the eggs so as not to waste any shavings. A small drizzle of truffle oil can work as a substitute.

Did you know?

Truffles are best stored in rice to preserve them and protect them from exposure to the air.

Teach your children

Optional: This is an easy recipe that you can share with your family, as your kids probably eat a lot of scrambled eggs.

Part 13 of 13

Train as a chef in France

Optional: If you want to follow in Chef Gordon Ramsay’s footsteps, studying in France is recommended, ideally under Guy Savoy and/or at one of Joël Robuchon’s restaurants, as eggs were one of the first things Gordon Ramsay mastered whilst in Paris.
