Marcus Samuelsson Elevates Scrambled Eggs With A Rich Key Ingredient
By Chase Shustack
Just because scrambled eggs are easy to make doesn't mean they can't benefit from a few extra ingredients here and there. Marcus Samuelsson, known for being the head chef of Harlem's Red Rooster restaurant in New York, has a version of scrambled eggs that include very rich but simple ingredients.
Food and Wine notes that his dish is a sandwich made with biscuits and scrambled eggs. The biscuits here are made using beurre noisette (aka brown butter), adding a richer, deeper, and nuttier taste, while the scrambled eggs include a sprinkling of cheddar cheese and are scrambled in a skillet of butter and drippings from a slice of country ham.
According to Fine Dining Lovers, brown butter is a delicious addition to scrambled eggs and provides a much richer "toasted" flavor to your scrambled eggs. Samuelsson creates a breakfast sandwich that is salty, savory, and sweet by combining simple, everyday ingredients.
