8 free-range large eggs
2 spring onions, thinly sliced

Method

1. Put the eggs, spring onions and herbs in a bowl, beat together lightly and

the butter and melt until beginning to foam. Pour in a quarter of the egg
mixture and swirl to cover the base of the pan. Stir gently for 2-3 minutes
or until almost set.

30 seconds, or until just set. Fold over and slide on to a serving plate.
