Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 5 tablespoons fat-skimmed chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter (or margarine)

Preparation

  1. 1. In a bowl, beat eggs to blend. In a 1- to 3-quart pan (depending on amount being cooked), blend broth with cornstarch. Stir over high heat until boiling. Let cool slightly (or cover and chill up to 1 day). Whisk broth mixture into eggs.
  2. 2. Set a frying pan (see below for size) over medium heat. Add butter; when melted, pour in the egg mixture. With a heat-resistant flexible spatula, or a wide metal one, push cooked eggs from pan bottom and sides, letting liquid mixture flow against hot pan; for creamiest texture, don't stir. Cook until eggs are firm but still moist and shiny on top (they must be at least 160° for egg safety), 3 to 20 minutes.
  3. 6 large eggs; 5 tablespoons fat-skimmed chicken broth; 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch and butter (or margarine), each; frying pan, 8 to 10 inches wide
  4. 12 large eggs; 2/3 cup fat-skimmed chicken broth; 1 tablespoon cornstarch and butter (or margarine), each; frying pan, 10 to 12 inches wide
  5. 18 large eggs; 1 cup fat-skimmed chicken broth; 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch and butter (or margarine), each; frying pan, 12 to 14 inches wide
  6. 24 large eggs; 1 1/2 cups fat-skimmed chicken broth; 2 tablespoons cornstarch and butter (or margarine), each; frying pan, 12 to 14 inches wide
  7. 30 large eggs; 1 3/4 cups fat-skimmed chicken broth; 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch and butter (or margarine), each; frying pan, 12 to 14 inches wide
