Sunset MARCH 2000

  • Yield: Makes: 6 to 36 servings; 1 to 2 eggs per person

Ingredients

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

Preparation

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. 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.
