TRY THE QUEEN’S FAVOURITE PANCAKES AND SCRAMBLED EGGS

TRY THE QUEEN’S FAVOURITE PANCAKES AND SCRAMBLED EGGS

In the aftermath of the Queen's death, people across the world are wondering what life as a Royal includes and luckily for them, they can get a taste of the monarch's very own delicious pancakes and scrambled eggs.

The scrumptious recipe, which is actually for drop scones, was first penned by the Queen in a letter to President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1960 after the President and his wife, Mamie, met with the Queen at her Balmoral castle. 

 

An Australian nutritionist has shared Queen Elizabeth II's favourite scrambled egg recipe. Which she says was hand-delivered to her by a close friend - who formerly worked as a royal chef. 

Serves 2

Ingredients

1. 3 organic (brown) eggs

2. 1 tablespoon milk

3. Sea salt, to taste

4. 1 tablespoon butter (or extra-virgin olive oil)

5. 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

6. Pinch ground nutmeg

7. Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

8. Snipped chives and kippers to serve (optional)

 

Method

1. Whisk the eggs and milk in a bowl until well combined. Add salt to taste.

2. Heat the butter or olive oil in a small frying pan over low–medium heat. Add the eggs and turn the heat down to low, moving them around the pan slowly with a spatula so they don't stick to the bottom.

3. Just before they are starting to set, add the lemon zest, nutmeg and extra salt, if desired and stir.

4. Serve immediately, garnished with pepper and chives, if using.
