  • 2large eggs
  • 1TB double cream
  • salt and white pepper
  • 1tsp unsalted grass-fed butter
  • 2 large spring onions(salad onions)
  • Pink Himalayan Salt
  1. Whisk the eggs together in a little jug. Add the double cream and season with salt and white pepper.
  2. Trim the spring onions (use two big, fat spring onions). Slice the white parts at an angle into thick pieces, like below. Keep separate from the green parts, which should be finely sliced and kept aside for the garnish.
  3. Melt the butter in a non-stick pan over high heat. Once hot, add the white parts of the spring onions and fry over high heat until they turn bright green and they partially caramelise (this happens quickly in a hot pan).
  4. Pour in the eggs and immediately remove the pan from the heat. Stir the eggs continuously off the heat using a silicon spatula until they scramble and cook through.
  5. If they are not done to your liking, slide them back onto the hot plate which should have been turned off or to VERY LOW (the residual heat of the hot plate will continue to cook the eggs.) (If you are doubling this recipe, you may need to keep the eggs on the hot stove top, but keep it on very low.) You will have lovely, creamy eggs in this way, and not overcooked rubbery eggs.
  6. Season with Pink Himalayan Salt and garnish with the sliced, green parts. (NOTE TO US READERS: Spring onions are ‘salad onions’.)

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that you should use 2 large spring (salad) onions. This is key, as it may not pack the same punch if you use thin, small ones. If it helps, your trimmed weight of spring onions should be at least 35g / 1.2oz. If it isn’t, use another 1-2 onions. (Macros were calculated on the above weights)

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it’s 1.5g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) – and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
