  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Heavy cream sub milk or half and half if necessary
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh Dill Or 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Whisk eggs together in a medium bowl until completely combined. At least 30 seconds.
  • Whisk in salt, pepper, cream, dill and turmeric.
  • In a non-stick pan on medium-low flame melt 1 tbsp of unsalted butter.
  • Once the butter is melted and slightly bubbly, pour in eggs.
  • With a silicone spatula gently fold the eggs towards the middle, stirring frequently until eggs start to develop curds.
  • Once curds begin to form slow stirring to allow for larger curds to form. Fold into the middle to allow liquid to run to the edges.
  • Add final tbsp of butter and fold into mostly cooked eggs.
  • Turn off the heat once the butter has completely combined. Eggs will continue to cook when removed from heat so plate quickly.
  • Serve and enjoy immediately.


We recommend using a whisk over a fork. Combine eggs vigorously for the best results.

  1. I would have never tried a recipe like this own my own, but my husband loves eggs and is exploring new recipes.

  2. I love that you put dill in this. I find it hard to uses for dill a lot of the time and would not have thought about using it in eggs.

    These are delicious! My daughter has me hooked on dill in my eggs…but I love adding turmeric to whatever I can, so today I just googled turmeric dill egg to see if anyone has tried it. And to my surprise there are quite a few recipes. I omitted the milk because I’m dairy free and used ghee instead of butter. They came out perfectly! Thanks!
