Steam Scrambled Eggs With An Espresso Machine

If your morning scrambled eggs are coming up short and you happen to have an espresso machine handy, the next time you decided to cook up a batch, steam scramble your eggs for a delightfully creamy concoction.

Food weblog Food Mayhem says that if you steam scramble your eggs, they will come out "creamy, tasty, and melt-on-your-tonguey". After beating eggs, butter and salt together in a porcelain jar, here's how it works:

Hold the jar underneath the steamer wand (milk steamer on an espresso machine) and let the wand dip into the egg mixture. Turn on the steamer and swirl about until the eggs are scrambled but soft and runny.

Hit up the Food Mayhem post for the full instructions, including a video of the egg-steaming in action. Don't have an espresso machine on-hand? Check out celebri-chef Gordon Ramsay's video guide to making the perfect scrambled egg breakfast. If you prefer your eggs hard-boiled, our previous post on how to bulk-cook hard-boiled eggs may be more your speed.

    Don't add salt to the eggs! Never add salt to scrambled eggs until they are cooked. The salt starts the proteins separating, and you end up with watery eggs. Let the eater of the eggs salt their own (and give them some fancy salt flakes for more textural experience)

    Scrambled and hard boiled eggs are easy - how about some foolproof instructions on how to poach eggs, something I've never been able to get to work :(

      Hey Jon - I found that if you add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar in the water, wait until its rapidly boiling, then stir the water so it forms a vortex and pour the egg (i put it in to a little bowl or ladle to help) into the centre the motion of the water and the vinegar will cause the egg to wrap around itself and give you a nice egg.
