During an notorious women’ journey, de Lesseps hilariously interrupted a dramatic second to serve up her egg dish on the seashore. And she made positive the women knew they have been having “Eggs a la Francaise.” Most recipes for this scrumptious dish embrace heavy cream, however de Lesseps’ has her personal “secret” ingredient—water!

She chatted concerning the second and the dish with Glamour in 2015. She insisted that consuming eggs after an evening of boozing could be a nice hangover treatment. “Eggs are good for hangovers,” she tweeted in 2015.

It’s preferrred for Easter morning or brunch any day of the week. She just lately shared a video tutorial she and her daughter Victoria shot in her kitchen.

She provides a splash of water

Instead of heavy cream, de Lesseps likes so as to add a splash of water to her scrambled eggs. She agrees it’s just a little unconventional, but it surely works. “Reminding you all, you’ve gotta whip up those eggs really good, add a splash of water,” she activates the tap and provides that sprint of water. “That makes it frothy. People say, water, what?” She continues to whip the eggs in her bowl.

She continues to scramble a number of eggs in a bowl and permits a saucepan coated in butter to warmth. She says utilizing a saucepan is vital to creating positive the eggs are fluffy and lightweight. De Lesseps removes the pan from the range and turns it, permitting the butter to completely coat the underside.

“And you want to cook it very slowly,” she advises. “The key is stirring it very slowly and constantly on low.” She jokes about how cooking exhibits have the completed product, however she’s in her kitchen so viewers are going to have to attend.

Stir till fluffy

She feedback that some individuals like their dish cooked to various levels. But she prefers her’s akin to the consistency of mashed potatoes. When the eggs are completed she likes to prime them with tomato sauce or perhaps a little truffle oil for style. She additionally makes use of a picket spoon to stir the eggs within the saucepan too.

Also, don’t overlook to sprinkle some parmesan on prime too. When she exhibits the completed product, de Lesseps provides a drizzle of truffle oil and dinner is served. She additionally shared her strategy with Glamour and mainly recounted what she confirmed followers in her video.

“You beat a couple of eggs, add a little bit—a tiny bit—of warm water, and you fluff them with a fork,” she mentioned. “You’re gonna put a little bit of butter on the bottom of your saucepan—not a frying pan, OK? Not a frying pan. [Then] you’re slowly stirring it the entire time. You never ever take your wooden spoon—don’t forget, wooden spoon!—[out of the pan]. I like my eggs soft, so eggs à la Française are usually done soft. Sometimes I’ll add a little tomato sauce and Parmigiano cheese in there, which is delicious. So you just stir it very slowly until it’s the consistency you want.”
