Put pan on a low burner.
Beat eggs together with a whisk.
Put in 1 tsp cream and salt and pepper to taste (I use a literal pinch of salt per egg, and 2 pepper grinds).
Whip together.
Melt butter in pan until foaming.
Add eggs.
Let set around edges.
Pull edges towards the middle with wooden spoon or heat resistant spatula.*
Let uncooked eggs run into the exposed parts of the pan.
Repeat until they are done to your liking.
Serve while warm.


*There are some who would say that you should whisk eggs while in the pan to form small tight curds. I don’t like those, but if you do, try that. I like my curds large and my eggs runny. I know, I am risking salmonella. There is a 1 in 10,000 chance the egg I have will have salmonella. It lives on the outside of the shell. I crack my eggs on a flat surface to minimize the risk because that doesn’t drive the shell up into the egg. In any event, since I am not old and don’t have a compromised immune system, I’ll take those chances. Because runny eggs are all kinds of creamy, happy goodness.
