Here is my Secret for Making Scrambled Eggs With Step-by-Step Instructions and Lots of Photographs
Scrambled eggs are one of the easiest meals to cook, and therefore suitable for beginners such as people leaving home for the first time.
I was a useless cook when I first left home in Africa, at the age of seventeen - I didn't know anything, because the family meals were cooked by anyone except me! Once I got to England, scrambled eggs was one of the first things I learnt how to do. I was so proud of myself, you'd have thought it was a full-scale gourmet meal, it was so delicious.
But experienced cooks will also learn a bit here, including my secret ingredient which improves the flavor of scrambled eggs and also gives you extra protein - especially good for invalids and those on a restricted diet.

- Put a blob of butter or a dash of olive oil into the saucepan and warm it on a low heat on the cooker until it has spread, making sure it covers the bottom of the saucepan and up the sides to prevent the egg mixture sticking.
Don't let it burn.
Put a Blob of Butter in the Saucepan
Start Cooking Your Toast
Meanwhile, make sure the cooker heating is on moderate (as a high heat will make the egg mixture solidify too quickly).
Add the Milk to the Eggs
You'll need to use a bowl for this.
Mix the Eggs and Milk in the Bowl With a Whisk
(or use a fork if you haven't got a whisk).
Add the Milk to the Eggs
Mix the Eggs
Pour the Mixture Into the Saucepan
Keep stirring to stop it sticking to the pan, and to ensure it sets evenly. Add the grated cheese immediately.
Pour the Egg Into the Pan and Stir
Continue Stirring on a Gentle Heat Until the Mixture is Still a Bit Runny but Just Set
Then remove from heat - it will continue setting in the hot saucepan (if you let it cook until it completely solidifies, the liquid will separate from the solid egg, and it won't be so nice).
- Butter your toast and turn out the scrambled egg onto the toast.
- You can add salt and freshly ground pepper before serving, but I think it is better for people to add their own, according to individual taste.

That's About All I Have to Say About Scrambled Eggs - But You Could Try to Ring the Changes
Some people think it's a delicacy to have smoked salmon with their scrambled egg, but personally I like my smoked salmon as a delicacy on its own, and not as an enhancement to another dish. To me it's just over-egging the gingerbread (perhaps that's an unfortunate choice of words in this context!).
And some people like bacon with their scrambled egg. I don't - if I'm having bacon, I like it with fried egg, mushrooms and tomatoes. To my mind it tastes sort of odd with scrambled egg.
