Recently, I watched a video from the show "MasterChef" of Gordon Ramsay's scrambled eggs cooking tutorial. Reading the comments, I was amazed by all the criticism– people calling the recipe dumb, saying the eggs looked disgusting, and claiming they'd never cook their eggs that way. I decided I had to find out for myself (and all of you) the real verdict when it comes to Gordon Ramsay's scrambled eggs.

This is an easy recipe to follow if you're looking for a quick breakfast in the morning.

#SpoonTip: If you're using unsalted butter, definitely don't be shy when it comes to seasoning the eggs with salt.

The Taste Test

I sampled these eggs with my sister, who is the ultimate egg enthusiast. She, and I quote, "would definitely, 10/10 eat them again." I found that they were some of the best eggs I've ever had– yes they were creamy, but they didn't feel watery and undercooked. You could still chew them without feeling like you were eating tapioca pudding.

After little thought, I decided Gordon Ramsay's scrambled eggs definitely earned me and my sister's seal of approval. At the end of the day, let's not forget he's a Michelin-star chef, guys– who were we to ever doubt him?
