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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Have a plate handy and pour the eggs directly onto the plate from the plan.
Many people tend to think that adding in 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.
