We’ve all said that we can make scrambled eggs, but can we? It might not seem like a whole lot goes into it, but making the perfect batch of fluffy scrambled eggs does take a bit of finesse. Here, we teach you how to make fluffy scrambled eggs!
What You’ll Need
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon of milk (use about one tablespoon per 3-4 eggs)
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Rubber spatula
- Break the eggs into a bowl.
- Heat your pan over low-medium heat. You want the pan to be hot enough that you can place a drop of water on the surface and have it glide along the pan. If it does, you’ve reached a good temperature. This will ensure that your eggs don’t stick to the pan.
- Add the butter to the pan and let it melt.
- Add milk to your egg mixture and whisk. You want to whisk for up to a minute. Make sure the eggs and the milk have properly mixed together. (If you whisk the eggs before you cook them you’ll get a better, fluffier consistency.)
- Once the butter has fully melted on the pan, pour eggs into it. Don’t stir them. Let them sit on the pan for a few seconds so that the bottom of your eggs set.
- When you see the edges of your eggs start to turn a pale yellow, begin folding them. Take your spatula and fold the cooked eggs toward the center of the pan. The raw eggs will then flood towards the edge of the pan. Keep folding the eggs until everything is cooked!
Using A Microwave
You can also make scrambled eggs in the microwave! They’re not going to be as fluffy, but all you need to do is whisk eggs and milk in a separate bowl. You can then pour the egg mixture into a microwave-safe bowl. It only takes about two minutes in the microwave and then you’re all done!
With so many options for scrambled eggs recipes out there, there are obviously a lot of different herbs and spices you can add to give your eggs a little something extra. Feel free to add in things like cheese, diced tomato, diced onion, cooked bacon or ham, or whichever herbs tickle your fancy.
It can sometimes be difficult to know just how many eggs to make for people, but if you happened to make too much then you can always store your scrambled eggs in the fridge for up to four days.
