Scrambled Eggs with Tomato Cream
These completely stable scrambled eggs will not draw water when standing. The secret ingredient is our White Sauce Powder – it seasons and holds the scrambled eggs together. But do not overcook, follow the recipe to the letter!
YOU WILL NEED
- 8 eggs
- 2 T (30 ml) Ina Paarman’s White Sauce Powder
- ½ cup (125 ml) water
- 4 T (60 ml) butter
- 1 cup (250 ml) fresh cream
- 4 T (60 ml) Ina Paarman’s Sun-dried Tomato Pesto
- 1 t (5 ml) Ina Paarman’s Chilli & Garlic Seasoning
Beat the eggs with a wire whisk in a bowl until well mixed. Mix White Sauce Powder with the water and beat into the eggs. Warm a heavy based dry frying pan. Add the butter. As soon as the butter has melted and begins to foam, swivel the pan to coat the base with butter.
Add all the egg at once and turn the stove down to medium / low. When the egg starts setting, stir very gently to allow the un-cooked egg to come into contact with the base of the pan. As soon as the mixture is creamy and just beginning to set, remove from the direct heat. The eggs will continue cooking, away from direct heat. Make sure to remove the pan while the eggs are still slightly runny on top and immediately spoon it out of the hot pan onto the serving platter.
To make the Tomato Cream, half whip the cream. Add the Sun-dried Tomato Pesto and Chilli & Garlic Seasoning and continue beating until just thickening. Do not overbeat, the texture should be like a thick double cream yoghurt.
Serve on the side with the scrambled egg and spread over the waffles before adding the topping/s of your choice.
