Scrambled Eggs for Daphne

The other day I watched Julie and Julia finally for the first time and absolutly fell in love with the movie. Interested in Julia Childs, I browsed the movie website and found a few fun recipes. One of them was for scrambled eggs. Let's just say that this was also the easiest recipe I had found. So I decided to make them a few days ago and results were wonderful!

This is a perfect breakfast for a lazy Sunday morning. Serve it with toasted baguette, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice and the New York Times Style Section.

Scrambled Eggs:

3large fresh organic eggs

3 tbsweet butter

2 tbhalf and half

½ tsp Kosher salt

2 tb pecorino romano, freshly grated

2small sprigs basil

Serves 2

1. In a small heavy bottom skillet, over medium-low flame, heat 1 ½ tb sweet butter until just golden brown

2. Crack the eggs directly into the skillet and pour in 1 tb of half and half and add the ½ tsp kosher salt.

3. As the eggs cook scramble them gently with a fork. After a minute, grate the cheese directly into the skillet.

4. When the eggs are almost done, add the rest of the half and half and butter.

5. Mix everything together gently with the fork. Remove the eggs from the pan piling them in a fluffy pile in the middle of a warm plate. Garnish with very small sprigs of basil and serve immediately.
