  • Salt and white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh goat cheese, crumbled

  1. Beat eggs until well combined.
  2. In a nonstick skillet, heat half the butter over medium heat, being careful not to let it brown. Pour in eggs and stir vigorously with a spatula while gently shaking the pan. Season with salt and pepper and scrape down the sides of the pan.
  3. Continue stirring, shaking and scraping the sides of the pan until the eggs just being to coagulate into creamy curds. Do not let them cook dry or take on color.
