Queen Elizabeth Always Requested 2 Unusual Ingredients With Her Eggs

Scrambled eggs can become monotonous, which is why so many people add extra ingredients to the otherwise simple dish. Australian nutritionist Lee Holmes obtained a recipe detailing Queen Elizabeth II's favorite scrambled eggs from a friend and former royal chef, which includes some unique ingredients.

To start, chef and "Hell's Kitchen" star Gordon Ramsay advises not to season the eggs at the start to prevent them from becoming watery. The ingredients for the Queen's eggs included three brown organic eggs, sea salt, one tablespoon of milk, one tablespoon of butter, one teaspoon of lemon zest, ground nutmeg, black pepper, and "snipped chives and kippers."

To prepare the eggs, whisk the eggs and milk together and add salt, then heat the butter over a separate frying pan and transfer the eggs to it. Once your creation is ready, add the remaining ingredients, including the kippers, if you’re a fan of fish.
