Scrambled eggs are boring right? Wrong! It’s all about the flavours, small additions that add punch and of course how you cook it. Michelle used a folding technique versus just mashing the eggs up, and took it off the heat a little under so it can continue to cook to perfection. What makes this scrambled egg so tasty is the ‘extra stuff’ – spring onion, tabasco, onion, mushrooms and a dollop of butter. Soooooo good! 😋 But we can do better! Serve some sliced avocado on a honey and balsamic vinegar dressed rocket salad and have these amazing gluten-free Chicken Schnitzels which are delicious. Happy days. 🤗
