Runny Scrambled Eggs: Yummy or Yucky?
The next morning, she whipped up some scrambled eggs for me, as John told her it that scrambled was the way I liked 'em. Unfortunately, I hadn't realized that "scrambled" in the UK means ... well, quite a bit runnier and uncooked than what we're used to in the US. Many people here actually add a splash of milk to keep that creamy, runny consistency. But quite honestly? Scrambled eggs that runny make me gag (sorry, Alison!).
John detests my overcooked version of scrambled eggs - I end up having to take his off way earlier than mine if I'm making them at home.
Is it strange to ask for your eggs to be "well done" at a restaurant? I'm considering it the next time I order my breakfast out.
