How to Make Scrambled Eggs

The secret to making moist, fluffy scrambled eggs is all in the scrambling.

You'll need low, gentle heat and patience to make perfect scrambled eggs.

1. To make breakfast for two, we used six eggs, six tablespoons of milk, salt and pepper to taste, and two teaspoons of chopped fresh parsley.

Plan on using three eggs per person for a good-sized serving. If you're counting calories, you can substitute egg whites for one or two of the whole eggs.

2. Crack the eggs into a bowl that's deep enough to support vigorous whisking.

    3. Thin the egg mixture with milk, cream, or even water: this will make gently cooked scrambled eggs more tender (note: if the heat is too high, the liquid can separate from the cooked eggs). Use approximately one tablespoon of milk per egg.

      4. Whisk the mixture until well combined. Don't add salt yet, as it can make the eggs tough.

        5. Heat a skillet over medium heat. We melted a pat of butter in the pan to add its rich flavor to the eggs, but you can use cooking spray or use a nonstick pan if you prefer.

          6. When the butter starts to bubble or a drop of water added to the pan sizzles, pour in the egg mixture. Immediately reduce the heat to medium-low. Sprinkle the egg mixture with salt and pepper to taste (about ¼ tsp. salt to start). Don't stir the pan: you want to let the eggs begin to set before you start scrambling them.

            7. This is the time to add minced herbs, shredded cheese, chopped scallions, sautéed mushrooms, chopped tomato, or anything else you like.

              8. With a wooden spoon, start to scrape the eggs from the edge of the pan to the center, forming large soft curds.

                9. Continue scraping your spoon along the bottom of the pan to redistribute the eggs as they cook.

                  10. You should start to see the bottom of the pan as your spoon scrapes a trail through the eggs.

                    11. When the eggs look wet but are no longer liquid, gently mound the eggs into the center of the pan.

                      12. Turn off the heat but leave the skillet on the burner. The scrambled eggs will continue to cook from the heat of the pan and from the residual heat in the eggs. Now's the time to put toast in the toaster and grab a pair of plates.

                        13. Divide your light, fluffy eggs between the two plates. Sneak a taste and add more salt or pepper before serving, or season the eggs at the table.

                        I add salt before cooking I find the salt makes the eggs fluffier

                        Patience ensures beginners do not overcook the egg. The more you scramble eggs you will find that as long as you are attentive to the temperature and the texture of your eggs that the results can be just as satisfying as a slower cooking method when you choose to turn up the heat.

                        At point #7 add onions and green peppers that have been sauteed until soft, garlic powder and oregano to taste and a TBSP of tomato paste continue on. You'll love Italian peppers and eggs!

                        Another little trick to fluffy eggs is to add a sprinkle of flour to the eggs before cooking.To avoid flour lumps add flour to milk first then to your eggs

                        I crack the eggs, one at a time, in a separate bowl just in case one of them is bad. That way you don't lose the whole bowl of eggs.

                        Wonderful, someone has actaully recommended something that sounds like it is so easy, but can be browned too easy and makes me mad. Know I have a way of following instructions. I had never known how much milk to add or how high to set the heat. Thanks soooo much

                        After I started using a heat-proof silicone spatula to lift and stir scrambled eggs, wished I'd been doing it for the past umpteen years! Works great. Also agree you can use higher heat IF attentive. In any case, beginning with higher heat helps to keep eggs from sticking initially--then turn it lower. Using a little bacon grease instead of butter prevents browning since it's easy to brown butter if the pan's too hot. If using butter and it does turns brown when first heating, best to throw it out, wipe the pan and start over.

                        Great instructions, but make sure you spread the butter around the bottom or use a non-stick pan. For 6 eggs, use a med-large frying pan. You may also spray the pan with an oil spray or butter flavored variety.

                        I add a bit of Tabasco or other hot sauce to my egg mixture, and a spoon of cottage cheese. Water seems to make a fluffier egg. I miss my electric fry pan, for the even heat. I use cast iron, and no teflon or non-stick stuff. A bit of dried basil adds a great flavor, also. Will have to try cream cheese. My favorite eggs are with grated yellow crookneck in them, with a lid on low and then flip when done and fluffy. Grated zucchini adds color, also. I'm into experimenting with muffins, and adding a piece of fruit, or a fruit smoothie/protein shake, it's a great way to start the day. I alternate days with hot cereal and love making breakfast for company.

                        I add 1-1 1/2 slice of Deluxe sandwich cheese to every 3 beaten eggs. I use a teflon pan with dab of melted margarine and use medium heat stirring with spatula. The eggs are fluffy and creamy delicious!

                        Try adding a few tablespoons of cream cheese when the eggs are almost done. It is just heavenly!!!

                        If you are in the mood for an egg sandwich, at step #7 let the eggs continue to cook. When the eggs have cooked sufficiently at the bottom, use a spatula or egg turner to cut egg in two or four parts by sliding edge of spatula along the pan, thus separating egg and making it easier turn over, to cook other side of the egg. Cook to taste, without leaving too long to maintain its fluffiness. Place on your favorite piece of slightly toasted bread and top with cheese, ham, tomato slices, and strips of bacon, or any favorite ingredients. Serve immediately, if not, you can pop in microwave for a few seconds to warm up.

                        Try cooking chopped onions and finely chopped green chillies (deseeded if you want only the flavour and not the heat) in a little milk initially and then follow with the rest of the recipe.

                        I only make scrambled eggs when I have the proper amount of time. I've followed the recipe from the Nero Wolfe Cookbook for years. As noted in the annotation, most cooks don't have the time to make scrambled eggs correctly, and unfortunately, because of the time and constant attention involved, tough scrambled eggs have been the norm in the U.S. for at least a hundred years. The initial high heat recommendation is ill advised; and reducing an early high heat has nothing to do with creating a pan not sticking. It only toughens the bottom layer of the eggs, creating a curds effect in the end product. Eggs should be cooked on low heat and stirred constantly. Cooking time takes between 30-40 minutes, which is why it's impractical for most hurried non-commercial cooks to make creamy, not tough and lumpy, scrambled eggs. Finally, only water and small amounts of butter should be used to make eggs light and fluffy. The proteins in milk products do just the opposite, and only seem to work bec

                        while I agree with asher,the key to great scrambled eggs is low heat...30-40minutes is way to long IMO...I do use milk in mine and always take them off the heat when they are still moist...then stir in a pat or two of cold butter for a beautiful shine and silky texture.

                        I agree with Asher. Water gives a much lighter, fluffier texture than milk when used in both scrambled eggs and omelets. That's how my Grandma taught me and I have found it to be true.

                        Asher is correct my late hubby would do the scrambled egg thingie in our house and they were ALWAYS perfect and fluffy and moist. He took forever in cooking them but the end result was spectacular. He said slow and low was the secret with water.

                        My husband and son love it with a triangle of Laughing Cow Light cheese. Similar to cream cheese but low in calories and so yummy. Then my favorite thing is to hollow out a bagel and toast it and fill the valley with my eggs. So good and figure friendly! Try it with egg whites too or egg whites and one whole egg.

                        Our volunteer fire dept. is having a community breakfast soon. I have had bad experience with scrambled eggs served at a steam table. They turned green after sitting in the tray for just a little while. What caused this? And how do we prevent it? Thank you

                        if you add a little cream cheese towards the VERY end of cooking them it gives great flavor (if not at the end you won't be able to taste it. also onion, hot dog, mushroom, kale, basil and cilantro are pretty tasty to add

                        The best advice I ever got was from a master chef who said the secret to great scrambled eggs is to mix in some cottage cheese. He was right and it can be used for any omelet recipe. It keeps them moist, light and fluffy.

                        Great tips. Very helpful, especially the added water to the eggs. It makes sense.

                        Thank you so much for the explanation. It seems so simple when others do it. Now, I too can scramble presentable eggs.

                        If there is one thing I cannot stand about eating eggs is how some like to cook till they are dried out which is disgusting. The eggs need to be a little moist which does not at all mean a small part of the eggs are raw. They are brought up to temp and are perfectly safe.

                        To prevent the butter from browning, use a mixture of butter for flavor, and olive oil to raise the smoke point, preventing burnt butter. Try adding a tablespoon or two of sour cream for a creamy texture and nice tang. I whisk it right in to the egg mix at the beginning. Works great for omelets as well. I also put salt and fresh cracked pepper in at the start.

                        We always keep pepperjack slices in the fridge for when we do burgers, but it also gets brought out to be melted in while scrambling eggs. Yum-o.

                        I agree cooking eggs in the microwave is the best and easiest way to to scramble them have never tried making an omelet in there but purchase a micro omelet dish and am planning on trying it. Does anyone have some helpful tips?

                        You have it right. High heat will ruin the eggs, but don't cook them too long and dry them out.

                        Thank you, Stevie, for your comments to Wheezy! Even tho most folks know, or Seem to know, how to cook scrambled eggs, there are always good tips shared by others if you are willing to learn. Thank you folks, who take time to Share your experiences! PS, I go along with the water, not milk; using cottage chs. or sour cream, and remove from pan while still moist. I am looking forward to trying cream cheese, as suggested!

                        I cook scrambled eggs at low heat.. I mean really low.. takes about 12 minutes, but the flavour is remarkably different.

                        I agree with the addition of water to the eggs, cooking low and slow and the use of a heat proof rubber spatula for pushing the eggs around the pan to creat nice moist curds. I learned about the spatula from my best freinds mom, who was an excellent cook. Her eggs were always moist, fluffy and delish!!. My husband and I like the addition of a lil cream chees and chopped chive when we want to get fancy. But the sky is the limit on what can be added to a scrambled eggs.

                        I have always added milk. I use olive oil instead of butter and add shredded cheese when I turn the heat off. You want the eggs to be a little moist when you turn the heat off. The eggs will finish cooking on thier own. This is a great recipe. I only add water if I don't have milk.

                        I use an inexpensive infrared thermometer to get and maintain my skillet heat at 300F,it takes a little longer but the eggs are moist and tender,and the tarragon and flat leaf parsley are great. You can purchase the thermometer at cut rate tool stores like Harbor Freight Tools. I'm finding more uses for it every day.

                        These instructions are great, even for those of us who have been scrambling eggs for 40+ years. I sometimes add some Mexican Velveeta at the end - it melts easily and is delicious!

                        What a load of fuss over the simplest breakfast item! I toast and butter my bread at the same time as I'm cooking the eggs, IN THE MICROWAVE! I use 3 eggs and a couple tablespoons of milk, 1 tablespoon butter (NOT margarine) and add salt to taste. Whisk all together in the glass bowl in which you'll be cooking them. It takes less than 2 minutes to cook on high, stirring a couple of times. Take out the eggs while still moist, and voila! Breakfast ready and delicious in about 3 to 5 minutes. Absolutely no risk of burning the eggs, and the bowl is far easier to clean than a pan used in the old fashioned way.

I'm going to put these tips to the test tonight and make breakfast for supper :-) I LOVE the eggs at Another Broken Egg and The Egg and I restaurants....my ultimate goal is to come up with something that good at home.

                        ASHER is a # 1 chef. He is so right. Butter, water, low heat and patience is the only way to make a beautiful fluffy scrambled egg, that I bet most people have never tasted.

                        the green may very well be from too high a heat or overcooking. just like hard boiled eggs that have green around the yolks-that's from overcooking.

                        I've learned to add cheese (cheddar, at least) at the end of the cooking process, or else you end up with watery eggs.

                        Instead of using milk, I use water instead, and don't scramble them very much, and I add green peppers, chunks of onions, and cheese..and it cooks up very nicely. I don't allow the eggs to get too dry.

                        Putting a lid on while the pan heats helps the eggs fluff more also.

                        Many years ago, a collegiate roommates grandmother showed me her refinement of scrambled eggs. Butter yes under a very low heated pan and then place cream cheese, and some of the flavored cream cheeses are great and then when it is sufficiently softened add the beaten eggs and walla you will have some of the most scrumptious scrambled eggs possible. Once you have experienced this you will adjust the amounts according to your desired taste factor.

                        CJ Aug 18, 2010: To print-Right click, select Print, under print range select Pages, type in 1-3 (unless you want all 17 pages of coments too). Click on Print. Mom always used milk, I ran out used water,much fluffier. Added Parmesian cheese (maybe too early) got small curd. Now to try baking soda, blender . . .

                        If a recipe calls for Extra large eggs, how many large eggs do I use?

                        Try using a small pot while cooking scrambled eggs. I have a glass top stove and find I get better heat distribution. The eggs really fluff up nicely.

                        In a hurry in the A.M. or whenever, I whisk one egg, Tbsp water, dash of S&P in a coffee mug, which has a tad of butter in bottom. Place in microwave on high for about a minute or so, remove mug and you have cooked scrambled egg for toasted English muffin, just add cheese or not. Can experiment vegies.

                        I normally add only 1-2 tsp. of liquid--milk or cream (for 6 eggs), but do mix in 3-4 tsp. butter chunked into small pieces just prior to pouring into the pan. This helps keep that nice yellow glossy finish. A side-note: the new Tuscan butter by Challenge adds a light herb flavor to the eggs.

                        no more plain simple eggs or omelette! that's the way: 3 eggs, 1 tablespoon of milk, 2 tablespoon of water. at #7 add chopped parsley (fresh parsley!!), ripped basil leaves (fresh basil!!), parmesan cheese and red onion thinly chopped. go on as explained (remember medium-low heat). at #12, while the bread gets toasted, add some sour cream (1/2 tablespoon) and mix gently. Adjust with pepper or salt - as you prefer - and enjoy!

                        Asher's comment about Nero Wolfe's recipe has me puzzled. Wolfe's recipe, widely available on the Internet, calls for a huge amount of cream and no water at all. Asher says he follows this recipe, but adds later that he uses water.

                        When we visited Ireland, our first Irish breakfast included the best scrambled eggs we ever had. These same great eggs were repeated each day we were there no matter where we ate. What is the secret????

                        Lots of great tips, thank you! My eggs are usually fluffiest when made in an egg "bake", but over the years have perfected the stove top variety too. A friend of mine was making scrambled eggs for a weekend breakfast once, and I saw her adding Mayo and nearly choked! She said "trust me, you'll never have fluffier, tastier scrambled eggs". She was right, even my mother and sister who strongly dislike Mayo LOVED them...and think about it...what is Mayo derived from? I ONLY use Mayo though if substituting whites for 1/2 the eggs...who needs the extra cholesterol? I agree with those users who use Sour creme (I always use FF) and water as well. Fluffy, creamy, yummy. All of the tips are fantastic, and let's remember, to each his/her own please? Boo to those who have the need to criticize whether or not someone needs tips or instruction on making perfect eggs or can't understand what all the "fuss" is about. With 17 pages of comments, apparently, it's about making the perfect Egg. God Bless

Thanks for all the tips on how to get a perfect scrambled egg...Never even imagined the baking soda or mayo! Would you add both? I'm gonna try it tomorrow1 I agree with amykins..Don't criticize! Hey anybody have a good toast recipe...haha Just kidding.

                        I love scrambled eggs; make them each weekend for our breakfast. Sometimes they would turn out soft and lovely, others not so much. Now I know it was because I started turning the eggs from the SIDES, always. Thank you for the tip. A great one. Made them for the hubby this morning. Even HE NOTICED the difference. You know the tip is a good one then. Cheers.

                        To bad most restaurants don't follow this method. I learned from my mother years ago and her eggs are the best. I detest scrambled eggs that have been stirred and stirred until you end up with a small pile of pea size eggs that do not look good at all. Most people just plain stir their eggs to pieces.

                        The real trick is getting air in the eggs. I can't believe only one person has suggested using a blender. I actually was told this by my high school chemistry teacher. The more you aerate the eggs, the fluffier they will be.

                        I find that the best way to make scrambled eggs is to wisk them until they turn a light yellow color. This introduces air into the eggs and eliminates the need for milk or water. Just follow the instructions here for the actual cooking and you will have great eggs!!

                        Another way is to use a sauce pan instead of a frying pan, melt butter, add onions or mushrooms first until lightly done, then add eggs and milk or cream, stirring constantly and remove while still moist. Removing early is the key.

                        For eggs, I use olive oil or canola oil in a clean steel pain. This allows me to heat hotter without burning and gets the first layer of eggs cooking and they don't stick to the pan. I clean the pan between servings.

                        All the comments are really useful! The only thing I will add is why so much butter? Olive oil is so much healthier, as for the taste, its easy to get used to it and never use butter again! Eggs have a rich taste of their own, so no need for saturated fats!

                        I do a few things differently and get frequent compliments on my scrambled eggs. 1. Never a wisk, and don't beat vigorously. Over-beating is one of the culprits in hard, rubbery eggs. I use a fork and stir longer, with less speed and no "folding" until yolks and whites are well-blended. 2. Too much heat and cooking too fast is the other thing that will produce rubbery eggs. I get the skillet just warm enough to start them cooking. You can test if it is ready by dropping a tiny glob from the beater fork to see if it "sets up." If it sizzles and dries immediately, take the skillet off the heat for a minute and put it back on a slightly lower burner. 3. I use a good non-stick skillet (T-Fal) with rounded edges and have a spatula with rounded sides that scrapes it perfectly. I use Canola cooking spray to avoid the burned-butter problem. 4. Avoid cranking up the heat too much. Bringing the eggs along slowly produces a soft, fluffy very yellow batch of eggs. Cooking lower and sl

                        Excellent instructions.. Yes, cream cheese is absolutely wonderful when added to the eggs at the very end..just to slightly melt in. Another tasty idea is a dollop of sour cream (the real kind not low fat) and a sprinkle of chives on the scrambled eggs as you are serving them, my Mama was from Brooklyn and this was a favorite dish back in the day YUMBO!!

                        This method is similar to the method I learned from The Henri Charpentier Cookbook (1945). It really does produce a lovely scramble that requires patience (as noted) as a primary ingredient. The reward is soft, rich eggs. I found the book in a used bookstore. Charpentier invented Crepes Suzette. The book is a wonderful mix of his life stories and his recipes. Henri's "method" is to use a double boiler (requiring even more patience than this method here!). No aluminum! He states" Too many people scramble eggs directly into the frying pan. I call such a dish a spoiled omelet and an awful scramble." Here is his method. "Beat the eggs thoroughly to a liquid. Place a generous piece of butter into the upper part of the double boiler after the water has started to boil. When it becomes hot, pour in the eggs. Let them come into contact with the butter for a moment, and then begin to stir them with a wooden spoon. When they have thickened to the consistency of heavy cream, a

                        I've found that using water instead of milk tends to make the eggs tougher. I sometimes use seltzer water and that keeps them fluffy.

                        I use a spoonful or two of light sour cream to the eggs instead of milk. Light and fluffy!

                        i'm a culinary student and this is a very good basic recipe.however jimmyjim6 salt doesnt make eggs fluffy, its the milk. salt actually dries out the eggs when you add them in the beginning. that's wht its best to add salt at the end.

                        I found that if you add a touch of water and put on a cover right before they are completely cook, they fluffy up nicely.

                        to the steamtable question, my mother was a banquet chef for years and the secret is lemon juice, if you lightly (very lightly) spay with lemon juice it doesnt turn brown, same goes with anything that turns brown almost immediately after cutting or cooking for ex. apples, hope this helps!

                        If you stir in a little pancake batter after you whisk the eggs they fluff beautifully.

                        FOR THOSE OF YOU WANTING OMELET INSTRUCTIONS: A professional French chef taught me a great way years ago, and everyone I cook for seems to love them. They may sound difficult, but they are actually quite easy with just a little practice. 1.) For 1 omelet, crack 3 eggs in a bowl. Add 1-3 TBSP milk or cream. Add a dash of salt, pepper, parsley, and garlic powder. Whisk very well. 2.) Prepare your fillings ahead: grated cheese, cooked mushrooms, chopped onion, peppers, cooked and crumbled bacon or ham, chopped tomatoes, etc. 3.) Put a 6" stainless or non-stick skillet on a high fire. Heat about 1 minute. Put a pad (about 1/2 TBSP) of butter in and spread it around the skillet with a wooden spoon. 4.) Dump in the whisked eggs/milk quickly. 5.) Turn fire down to medium. 6.) Using your wooden spoon, quickly stir in a circular and sometimes back & forth motion to scramble and fluff the eggs in the center of the pan, leaving an untouched ring of egg (about 1")around the outer ed

                        I use no milk, or water to the egg mixture. I use one heaping tablespoon of fresh sour cream, then beat it into the egg mixture. I use the process to scramble the egg, and add salt, and pepper in the skillet before removing the eggs from the pan. It makes for easier clean up. (2-3 eggs)

                        For the fluffest eggs. Put them in the blender. I was in naples at a resterant and the omlet were so fluffy. I ask the cook how he made them. He told me he blends the eggs. I tell you it was the biggest omlet I ever had. Had to take some home.

                        I scramble eggs IN the skillet to which I've added a pat of butter and sprinkle the eggs with a dash of salt as soon as they are cracked onto the pan. Then with the heat at about medium I begin scrambling them but not too much. I want to see both white and yellow in the pan, slightly moist. The flavor of the unbeaten but folded white and yellow of the eggs is heavenly with a subtle layering of flavor. The trick is getting the eggs out before they brown or dry out.

                        Another idea to try...vinegar! Just a splash will help with the fluffy part. The smell of vinegar goes away when the vinegar evaporates. No taste difference either. Eggs can be cooked at higher temperature and still come out fluffy.

                        This is totally wrong...Here is how you actually make excellent scrambled eggs: A. Melt 10 grams butter on med-high heat B. Add 3 eggs directly to skillet; do not break C. As protein denatures (the albedo firms and turns white), begin to move egg with wooden spatula; D. Finish eggs with 10 grams heavy cream and go directly to plate E. Add salt & pepper This actually works, especially for 1 person...don't try a dozen eggs at a time as cooking temps are erratic with eggs.

                        Sounds wonderful but I would substitute a plastic spatula for the wooden spoon when dealing with raw eggs. The wooden spoon may still hold salmonella bacteria from raw eggs in the grains of wood even after washing with hot soapy water.

I usually add green pepper, mushrooms, and onion (sauteed) and top with. grated cheese at the end, but I've got to try the cream cheese and Laughing Cow suggestions. LC is a favorite and always on hand.

                        Not being a cook, I had to make quick scramble eggs for my mom. My method: for one person: 2 whole eggs and 1 egg white in bowl, 1 tablespoon skim milk, sprinkled black pepper on top, add pieces of cheese (any kind but not too thick), whisk and whisk and whisk and whisk. About a minute's worth. Pour into any pyrex bowl preferably medium size and POP INTO MICROWAVE at 2:40 minutes high heat. Make sure center is not wet. If it is give a few more minutes. It will cook and slowly rise into the most awesome looking soufle. At time end the soufle will deflate and you have immediate scrambled eggs. We aren't fancy eaters but I assume anything you want to put in it is okay, but I do it all with a 1100 watt Microwave. Good luck.

                        As described here is very correct except that salt and pepper in the wisk still works very well. Veggies are also delightful!

                        For a best ever egg sandwich....toast bread of your choice, lay a slice of cheese on the bread (even American works), top with hot scrambled eggs. Spread the other slice of toasted bread with.....and here's the secret......stone ground.... mustard.

                        It's important to not scrmable them too early or they might turn out too rubbery

                        I've never thought to add additional liquid to my eggs - I'm planning on trying this! I love light and fluffy eggs, sounds like this is a handy trick to accomplish that task!

                        It's always nice to learn a new method of cooking, especially since my mother cooked scrambled eggs to death and I hated them. Now, not so bad.

                        Drop the toast at the same time you pour the eggs, they will be ready at the same time.

                        when making omelets,use a rubber spatula thru out... pour your egg mixture in the pan wth butter or tad of oil, dont get pan too hot...just tip the pan so the egg can run around underneath sides of the pan lifting sides with scraper when all mixture runs off.... put your ingred in the omelet, lower heat, fold over with rubber scraper....let sit off burn a second to cook filling and melt cheese good luck enjoy!!!!

                        I actually have used this reciped my entire life, the way Mom did it. But we add the cheese at the end of the process, around step 12. That way the cheese doesn't break down too much and cause the egg mixture to become runny.

                        I find that if you use 1/8 tspn cream of tarter you eggs will not turn green on a steam table. great for banquets

                        I have been making scrambled eggs for years, but never quite learned the best way to make them. I've never really been a fan of them, so I just made them for guests or for my kids. I tried this method this morning, and added some picante sauce. They were fantastic! I have tried Rachel Ray's version with cream cheese before, and they are good as well. With this cooking method, I may just be a convert! Thanks!

                        That's the way I have been making my scrambled eggs for over 40 years. The lower the heat (to a point) the better the eggs. Use butter, it makes the eggs nice and tasty. Take your time and enjoy the eggs transformation.

                        Great way to scramble eggs, I avoided the butter (diet)and use a olive oil spray, I added grated chedder cheese (just a handful) it tasted great. Thank you

                        I like to add Ranch or Bleu Cheese Dressing, or even Mayonnaise, for moisture and cottage cheese for fluffiness. Tastes special.

                        Allrecipes came through for me as usual. Some basic rules when teaching younger children to cook their favorite eggs came in handy. The rest of us just eyeball it. I guess because of the size of the egg.

                        I think that step number 3 is brilliant and also think, from my experience, that the eggs are the best when you do not whisk them before. You should whisk them in the pan with some butter.

                        I am famous for my scrambled eggs, and I NEVER add milk to the eggs! I do like to add cheese sometimes. I would also not recommend leaving them in the pan unattended, at all ever. The key is constant stirring over low heat. As soon as they reach the perfect moisture level I remove them from the pan, otherwise they cook considerably more on the bottom. So, if you can, make the toast while still regularly stirring your eggs.
