(by Michelle Cacho-Negrete)

2 eggs

2 T. heavy cream or evaporated milk

pinch each of salt, pepper, and dill (fresh, if possible)

2 T. salted butter

Whisk together eggs, cream or evaporated milk, salt, pepper, and dill.

Over medium-low heat, melt butter in a cast iron 7-in. pan, add egg mixture, and cook, lifting the sides until the eggs have started to scramble loosely.

Cover pan, lower heat, and cook to the preferred consistency.

Serves 1.
