Here’s a great video from Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube channel teaching you how to make perfect scrambled eggs in three different ways. The recipes come from Oliver himself as he walks you through English, French and American scrambled eggs.
English Scrambled Eggs
Whisked eggs over medium heat with a knob of butter and a pinch of salt, moved around the pan with a spatula every few seconds and served on a simple piece of toast. Soft, delicate and 'gorgeous' according to Oliver.
French Scrambled Eggs
French-style involves whipped eggs over a bain-marie and it takes quite a while, however (six minutes), with butter added at the end, you’re left with a much smoother and creamier texture, altogether more refined and elegant.
American Scrambled Eggs
That’s butter, salt, whisked eggs as usual, into a pan and a technique that involves slowly folding the eggs in the pan over a gentle heat to get diner-style eggs, delicate but substantial.
