Mascarpone Scrambled Eggs

In which I post a scrambled eggs experiment at Mike's behest...

For many years I have been making a variation on Gordon Ramsay's scrambled eggs.[1]


  • knob of butter
  • 3 eggs
  • dash of milk
  • 1/2 tbsp mascarpone
  • (optional) chives/smoked salmon
  • (to serve) toast


  1. Put a knob of butter in a saucepan over a low to medium heat.
  2. Once the butter starts melting break the eggs into the pan.
  3. Scramble the eggs while trying to keep the yolks intact.
  4. Remove from the heat and keep stirring while breaking the yolks.
  5. Return to the heat while adding the milk.
  6. Continue to scramble moving off the heat if they cook too quickly.
  7. Add mascarpone and continue to scramble off the heat.
  8. Add pepper and salt while continuing to stir.
  9. (Optionally) add smoked salmon or chives.
  10. Serve on toast.
