Tips for Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

  • When whisking the eggs, it should be a consistent pale yellow color with no visible bits of white or yolk.
  • Adding a tiny spoonful of milk or cream is optional but I prefer the texture when it is added.
  • Season the eggs before adding them to the pan.
  • Preheat the pan before adding the eggs.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, high heat will cause rubbery eggs. Low and slow is best.
  • Remove the eggs from the heat while they are still slightly glossy. They will continue to cook once removed.

  1. Add to a heated non-stick pan with melted butter and let the bottom of the eggs set for a minute.

  1. Move the eggs around with a spatula until they are barely shiny.

  1. Remove the pan from the heat and let the eggs continue to cook off the heat. Serve immediately.

ARE YOUR EGGS FRESH? Check for freshness by placing an egg in a glass of water. If it sinks, it’s fresh. If it floats, it’s a dud!

Variations

  • Not quite an omelette, egg scrambles are free form, and allow all kinds of tasty and nutritious ingredients to be added!
  • Cheddar cheese, mozzarella, feta, and bleu cheese are great in scrambled eggs.
  • Diced veggies like bell peppers, onions, ham, and sliced olives are great additions!
  • Since the eggs cook quickly, you can panfry the veggies a bit first before adding the eggs to soften them.

  1. Even though I love eggs done ‘any’ way, scrambled have always been my favorite go-to eggs. I like mine with a ‘tiny’ sprinkle of garlic powder mixed in w/the salt & pepper, before scrambling them. You can’t actually taste the garlic, but it really wakes up the flavor.5 stars
