  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp heavy cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add butter to melt.⁣
  • Combine eggs, heavy cream, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl.  Whisk well.  Add to a nonstick skillet over medium low heat.  Constantly move eggs around, pulling from edges. You are going for a very soft scramble (almost runny) as they will keep cooking once removed from heat.  Once cooked, roughly 5-7 minutes, remove from heat.⁣
  • Garnish with more grated Parmesan cheese and freshly cracked pepper. Serve immediately.
