Easiest Scrambled Eggs Ever!

scrambled eggs made in a high-speed blender

Sainsbury’s recently got in touch with told me about the fact that all of their fresh eggs are now cage-free. And, all of their own brand products also contain cage-free eggs. No coops for these chooks!

They wanted me to show this little video as they are quite proud of the fact;



Plus they asked if I would like to come up with a recipe using their eggs. Well, as I am just back from holiday, had loads on at work since, I wanted something simple that could be knocked up in no time at all.



This recipe is actually perfect for anyone who loves scrambled eggs in the morning but are short on time. You do need one item in the kitchen to make it though (well, apart from a toaster) – a high-speed blender, such as my Optimum 9400, which can gently cook soups and other foods, just by the friction they create.

I wanted to see if the blender could heat up eggs enough to scramble them – and guess what? – it did. So, if you are going to be busy for 9 to 10 minutes in the morning try this very quick and easy way to scramble eggs without standing over a pan.



Take 5 eggs and a spot of milk (about 3 or 4 tablespoons) and a drizzle of olive oil. Pop these into the blender and turn on high speed for 9 to 10 minutes. That’s it!

When I was experimenting I didn’t think it would work, but after the 9 minute mark, the noise from the jug changed slightly. That’s when I knew they had thickened.



I took the lid off to find scrambly eggs. I had toasted a couple of slices of bread, spread it with butter and heaped on my delicious eggs. I garnished with a little chopped spring onion and a crack of black pepper, but that was purely for the photos and is, of course, optional.

(a word of advice, to clean your jug of eggs, add cold water and some vinegar and let steep for a while. Don't worry, the smell doesn't linger. Hot water would cook the eggs further and make it impossible to clean up.)

So, if you would like to make easy scrambled eggs for breakfast and have a high-speed blender, pop into Sainsbury’s and grab some cage-free eggs.

Disclosure Statement: I was sent Sainsbury’s vouchers in remuneration for posting the video and coming up with a recipe using their eggs. Any opinions expressed are entirely my own.

  3. Interesting. I didn't think they would cook evenly in a power blender.

    1. They do Sally - no runny bits either. Just make sure that they don't over cook!

  5. Oh yes, great idea! We tried sous vide scrambled eggs the other night (when I saw "we" I mean Pete) as we'd been watching Aussie Masterchef and someone tried it, but didn't do very well. Pete's were much better but we were doing it from curiosity and knew we'd be unlikely to ever bother again. But this one might be a good one to remember, especially if cooking for a few people at once...
