How To Cook Eggs 2 Ways

Eggs are one of those foods that can be great or go wrong very quickly. With these tips and tricks, you can cook the best eggs every single time. Whether you want them perfectly jammy or creamy and scrambled, this post is for you.

Perfect Jammy Eggs

My husband asked me where the term ‘jammy’ eggs came from and I have no clue, all I know is they are delicious and I love them lol. They are super simple to make and you don’t need a lot of supplies!

Here are the steps…
  1. Make an ice bath for the eggs by filling a bowl with ice and water (this is for after the eggs are done to stop the cooking process)
  2. Fill a small sauce pan about 1/2 way full with water and bring to a boil, then carefully place each egg into the water using a slotted spoon and reduce the heat to keep a gentle boil
  3. Set the timer for 6 minutes (go a little longer if you want it less runny)
  4. When the timer goes off, gently place the eggs in the ice water. Once they are cooled, crack the egg on each side and peel under cold running water
  5. Slice in half and serve over beautiful toast and tomatoes!

For this plate, I sliced some fresh sourdough bread and toasted it under the broiler. Then I spread some ghee on it, topped it with fresh spinach and arugula and a thick slice of tomato. A sprinkle of salt and pepper and then a perfect jammy egg for the most delicious breakfast.

Low & Slow Creamy Scrambled Eggs

There are two important things to keep in mind if you want creamy scrambled eggs. The first is fat. You want good fat to help keep them perfectly creamy and decadent. I love to use grass fed butter or ghee, but you could also use rendered bacon fat or tallow. The second thing to keep in mind is the temp you cook them at. You want to cook these babies low and slow so they don’t dry out and get all rubbery.

Here’s how you do it…
  1. Crack your eggs into a bowl and whisk really well, you want it well combined
  2. Add your fat to your skillet and turn heat to medium/low
  3. Once the fat is melted, add in the eggs
  4. Use your rubber spatula to slowly move the eggs in the pan as they cook
  5. Take the pan off of the heat just before the eggs are done, add a sprinkle of salt and pepper (the eggs will finish cooking by the time they hit your plate)
