Why Gordon Ramsay Takes The Pan Off The Burner When Cooking Eggs
By David Tran
While scrambled eggs may seem straightforward, slight alterations in ingredients and cooking methods will make them stand out. Culinary experts all have their own techniques for creating perfect scrambled eggs, and this simple method from "Hell's Kitchen" chef Gordon Ramsay ensures your eggs will be rich and creamy.
The perfect scrambled eggs begin with three eggs, and Ramsay warns against whisking the eggs beforehand. Once the eggs are in the pan, proceed to whisk and periodically cook the eggs on and off the burner on what he calls "generous" heat.
Alternate cooking on and off the burner for 30 seconds, and as the eggs start to thicken and take shape, take the eggs off the stove permanently, because the residual heat will do the rest. Ramsay adds that continually stirring the eggs will help them cook evenly.
