“Live from Chateau Marmont in Hollywood,” I scramble up the best eggs in the world for my Facebook followers, to celebrate the success of my new film “Mr. Holmes”, says Sir. Ian McKellan on his Facebook page HERE.

While I agree with Sir Ian on his egg technique, I have a variation that I do. I make them from free range farm fresh eggs BUT, instead of creme or milk, you just use some grass fed butter, a dash of cold water, and lightly salt/pepper, a touch of garlic and like McKellen, you take them off the heat before they are solid since the pan heat keeps them cooking just a bit longer. And be sure to leave y our toast standing, not flat on the plate, so that the moisture evaporates.

Enjoy, and be sure to see Mr. Holmes.

How do you make YOUR eggs?
