    google "french-style scrambled eggs" and you will get some tips. The trick is lower heat and slow cooking, to make small, creamy curds.

      The most important thing is to not overcook them.

          i saw julia child do scrambled eggs and she said it should be done at very high heat and last only a few seconds.

            You can do it at any temperature, but it gets trickier when you use more heat. I do mine in a regular saute pan at medium heat and the results are great, but the low-heat double-boiler method is more fool proof.

        it's very simple. you will need to add cream cheese. low heat.

            they must add some kinda cheese or milk to get it that creamy? You think it's just eggs straight up?

                Thanks for all the tips. I am sure Lawrence adds some kinda of cheese... or cream or something. It doesn't just taste eggs.

                Butter is usually the easiest way to get creamy scrambled eggs, that, and lots of stirring and removal of the heat before the curds get hard. It's all in the elbow work ;)

                  Gordon Ramsay uses creme fraiche in his recipe to give it that creamy texture, so that could be another alternative

                    My guess is they add some form of cream to the eggs, if anything - maybe 10 or 15%. I don't detect any of the tanginess I associate with cream cheese or creme fraiche when I have their scrambled eggs. You could always try asking them on Twitter what their secret is - who knows, maybe they'll oblige. ;-)

                Personally, I find that adding cream cheese is cheating

                here's one with only eggs, butter and salt : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5S7cH...

                      So, they told me they put cream on the eggs. I will try the Gordon Ramsay technique with cream and see if I arrive to the same results...
