Minty scrambled eggs

As a child, I always loved eggs. My parents would make them in almost every style possible. I had a few of my own though (Pizza Eggs and Golfer's Eggs). However, my favourite has always been scrambled eggs — just the way my dad, mum and grandma used to make them. I've added a little of my own style to it, and this is what I have:


  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ Cup Milk
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp chopped up mint leaves (I used dried mint)
  • 1 Tbsp butter


  1. Break 2 eggs into a mixing dish
  2. Add milk, salt, pepper and mint, and ½ Tbsp butter
  3. Mix with an egg whisk until bubbles start to form (or until you're tired)
  4. Meanwhile, heat the rest of the butter in a pan on medium
  5. Add mixture to pan
  6. Let it cook for a few minutes until the base starts to bind
  7. Now stir frequently with a wooden spoon until most of the liquid (from the milk) has evaporated
  8. Serve and eat with toast
Simple, good for any meal.
