Let’s face it, for the past 10 days we have seen constant coverage of the Queen’s passing. We’ve seen her long life celebrated on every tv network non stop, reliving those 96 years, learning tidbits about her life on and off stage. What we hadn’t heard about is how did she like her eggs prepared for her royal breakfast, until now. We have the secret recipe and I think it sounds fantastic and worthy of you trying it at home!
An Australian nutritionist has shared the Queen’s scrambled egg recipe, as well as the two ‘unusual’ ingredients the royal chef added for flavor: nutmeg and lemon rind.
Lee Holmes, a holistic chef and the founder of Supercharged Food, is currently in the UK spending time with mourners after the Queen’s passing on September 8.
She has shared a copy of the Queen’s favorite egg recipe, which she says was hand-delivered to her by a close friend – who formerly worked as a royal chef and now the whole world can see the secret recipe!
‘Ma’am loved to sometimes start the day with a protein packed breakfast and these eggs were tailored to the way that she particularly liked them.’
Ms Holmes explained that the Queen loved to eat homegrown foods and those that were produced locally in her area.
‘She was also a fan of eating with the seasons. That’s my kind of lady, she certainly put the Great into Great Britain,’ she said.
Scrambled Eggs Fit For A Queen!
- Here’s the secret recipe
- Serves 2
- 3 organic (brown) eggs
- 1 tablespoon milk
- Sea salt, to taste
- 1 tablespoon butter (or extra-virgin olive oil)
- 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
- Pinch ground nutmeg
- Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
- Snipped chives and kippers to serve (optional)
- Whisk the eggs and milk in a bowl until well combined. Add salt to taste.
- 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.
- Just before they are starting to set, add the lemon zest, nutmeg and extra salt, if desired and stir.
- Serve immediately, garnished with pepper and chives, if using.
I think this recipe is worth a shot, I will probably pass on the kippers and opt for bangers instead.
Maybe these were the eggs Sir Paul McCartney was singing about!
