The chef's favorite scrambled egg-making hack…
"When you're making scrambled eggs," Ramsay advises, "always remember to take them on and off the heat while you whisk. It allows the eggs to not overcook and gives you that fluffy, delicious texture."
Gordon Ramsay's ultimate breakfast sandwich:
"I made an incredible breakfast sandwich with my friend Zedd in my kitchen complete with a brioche bun, eggs, goat cheese, cheddar cheese, and some incredible thick-cut bacon," Ramsay tells us, adding that there's no limit to the creativity you can stack onto your bread. "There are so many things I'd want to put in it based on where I am in the world," he said.
To go a little healthier, how does Gordon Ramsay make oatmeal?
"I'd do 50/50 rolled and steel-cut boiled with water and milk for creamier oats. You cook until tender and finish to desired consistency with milk.
"Then my favorite part is how you can make it your own by seasoning it with your choice of vanilla bean, cinnamon, cardamom, and/or nutmeg. Serve it with nuts, granola, or fresh berries, and you have the ultimate oatmeal!"
Does Gordon Ramsay prefer coffee, or tea?
"I drink both!" he reveals. "Coffee in the morning with some oat milk and then when I need a pick me up in the afternoon, I tend to go with tea with a splash of milk."
Why oat milk? As Ramsay told us: "I found that cutting dairy out . . . made me feel more energized in my mornings, which is when I always workout."
