    yooper's Note:

    This comes from the most recent edition of "The Joy of Cooking." Takes a little elbow grease, and you'll need a double boiler. These are the creamiest, richest and most lucious tasting scrambeled eggs I've ever eaten!

      Cooking scrambled eggs slowly makes a heck of a difference! Everything the man said in his intro LOL. If you have the time, do it this way. I wouldn't have thought about using a double boiler but now that I know about this method it will be used a LOT!

      Tasty eggs, but, in my opinion, not really worth the extra dishes and time. (Sorry, I'm a bit lazy.) The eggs were good, but didn't notice enough difference to make them this way all the time. Sorry. Fun to try! Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup Tag Game.

      You definitely need a double boiler. I tried a ghetto-double-boiler with a pot and a pyrex dish and it came out as a big pile of inedible goo.
