Queen’s scrambled eggs recipe

This is how the Queen liked her scrambled eggs

A special recipe for scrambled eggs that Queen Elizabeth particularly enjoyed is now being shared around the world.

Many of you chefs and amateur cooks out there may know it already, but for those who don’t, here’s a breakfast fit for royalty.

Without further ado let’s get down to it, with thanks to Lee at https://www.superchargedfood.com/

Queen’s scrambled eggs recipe.


  • 3 organic (brown) eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind*
  • Pinch ground nutmeg*
  • freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • snipped chives and kippers (optional)

*The lemon rind and the nutmeg are the secret ingredients.

How to make it:

Whisk the eggs and milk in a bowl until well combined. Add salt to taste.

Heat the butter or olive oil in a small frying pan over low–medium heat. Add the eggs and turn the heat down to low, moving them around the pan slowly with a spatula so they don’t stick to the bottom.

Just before they are starting to set, add the lemon zest, nutmeg and extra salt, if desired, and stir.

Garnish with pepper and chives.

Serves two. A breakfast fit for a queen — and a king.

  1. I’ll give it a try. I never would have come up with lemon and nutmeg on my own.
    Thank you and I’m sorry for the loss of your Queen.
