Queen Elizabeth's Chef Added These Special Ingredients To Her Eggs
It’s rumored that Queen Elizabeth preferred scrambled eggs for breakfast, and to make the dish fit for a queen, the royal chef would add lemon zest and nutmeg.
These additions might sound strange, but nutmeg adds a warm earthiness and slight sweetness which the lemon zest balances well with its citrusy, mildly sweet notes.
To get your ratios right, start with three eggs and a tablespoon of milk. Then add one teaspoon of lemon zest and a pinch of nutmeg, along with butter, salt, and pepper to taste.
