How to Scramble Eggs
Learn to make fluffy, moist, flavorful, and evenly cooked scrambled eggs with great results every time. With these simple tips, you can scramble eggs with ease!
Make certain that your eggs are thoroughly beaten
This is key. Your eggs need to be thoroughly beaten and mixed to get that “fluff” that everyone loves in their eggs.
Using a fork and whisking briskly is fine but if you own a whisk, that’s even better to use. I also like to add in a pinch of salt when I’m whisking my eggs, too.
Heat up your skillet before adding in your eggs
Your skillet needs to be hot before your eggs are dumped in. You also need to make certain that you’re spraying your pan or adding on a coating of butter or oil so that your eggs don’t stick. If you don’t have high heat and adding in olive oil, the whisked eggs are immediately going to stick.
I’ve found that it’s best to melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Once your pan is hot, add in your beaten eggs to start cooking.
Allow the eggs to sit in the pan
Allow the eggs to sit in the pan for about 30 seconds or a minute until you see the edges start to cook and harden a little. You can let them sit for a little time
before you start to strip and mix them from the bottom of the pan. Then you’ll want to use a spatula and gently push the eggs from the outside edge to the middle of the pan.
Moving around the pan and continuing to push towards the center.
Once they start to cook, you can begin to gently fold the eggs together. I love to use a cast-iron skillet because it’s the best pan for making eggs! I tend to use a wooden spoon when scraping and mixing the fluffy curds but in a cast iron pan, you can use whatever you’d like.
Make certain not to overcook the eggs
Once you notice that there done, you need to remove your scrambled eggs from the heat immediately. There’s a fine line to having eggs that are overcooked so really pay attention during this step. You’re going to want tender eggs so keep that in mind as a bit of carryover cooking will happen.
Have a plate handy and pour the eggs directly onto the plate from the pan
Many people tend to think that adding milk to your eggs before scrambling them adds some sort of effect and taste to the eggs. This actually isn’t true and really is an unnecessary step. You don’t have to add anything to your eggs to get them to be scrambled perfectly.
You simply need to make certain that the pan is hot and you’re patient enough to cook them all the way through.
Be sure that you’re using a heat safe rubber spatula to stir the eggs so that they don’t stick to the skillet. I’ve found that sometimes, the eggs will even stick to a nonstick skillet if you don’t stir the egg whites and egg yolks. The whole process is simple to do but it’s important to use this easy method.
What goes well with eggs?
I’m all about the side dishes. Crispy bacon, a toasted English muffin, or even a side dish of sauteed spinach with bits of ham taste great.
What are simple ingredients you can add to your eggs?
I like a bit of heat so I’m a fan of adding in some cayenne pepper but flaky sea salt and black pepper add great flavor, too. You can even top with a tiny bit of sour cream and goat cheese to add a couple of options for healthy fat.
Making scrambled eggs isn’t complicated at all. All you need to make the best soft and creamy scrambled eggs for the perfect breakfast is fresh eggs, a bit of salt and pepper for flavor, and a little butter.
