  • Portion size 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 teaspoons butter
Filling:
  • 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chive

Method

In bowl, whisk together eggs, water, salt and pepper. With fork, stir just until blended but not frothy. In 8-inch (20 cm) skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat until foaming, tilting pan to coat bottom and side. When foam starts to subside and butter just begins to darken, pour in egg mixture, shaking pan back and forth while using underside of fork to stir eggs in circular motion for 10 seconds.

Cook, shaking pan occasionally and using spatula to push cooked egg to centre and allow uncooked eggs to flow underneath (tipping pan if necessary), for about 1 minute longer or until underside is set but top is still slightly runny. Sprinkle with cheese, tomatoes and chives. Fold and serve. Makes 1 serving.

Variation: Instead of the Swiss cheese, tomatoes and chives, you can easily substitute your favourite fillings.
