Anthony Bourdain Reveals His Secret for Making Perfect Scrambled Eggs

It's so much easier than you think.

Scrambled eggs might seem like a simple dish, but there's a lot of debate about how to make them the right way.

Top chef Anthony Bourdain is here to settle this breakfast dispute, once and for all. In a recent video for Tech Insider, the culinary king shared his simple secrets for making the perfect scrambled eggs.

First, you need four simple ingredients: eggs, butter, salt, and pepper. He emphasizes that the eggs must be very fresh—because after all, they're the star of the show here.

Heat up a pan so it's hot, but "not too terribly hot". Then crack your eggs on a flat surface and deposit them into a bowl or cup. Next, beat the eggs with a fork—being careful not to over-beat them—to achieve a "ripple of white and yellow throughout." Add salt and pepper, but nothing else—no water, no milk, and no cream. "It's about the egg," he says in the video. "You're not making a quiche here."

Immediately after mixing the eggs, deposit them into the preheated pan with plenty of hot, foaming butter. Anthony emphasizes that you shouldn't let the eggs sit before cooking them. Let them "form up a little bit" in the pan before pushing them around in a figure-eight pattern. This folding technique helps achieve fluffy eggs with a favorable texture (and none of those little broken bits).

"Like a lot of really good, simple things, more often then not, people find a way to overcomplicate them and screw them up," says Bourdain. So remember: It's breakfast, not brain surgery.
