I need to use up some veggies in the fridge for dinner tonight! I plan to do an egg scramble! Here is my question: How do you scramble your eggs? Mine NEVER come out like how you get at a rest. I am talking that fluffy thick scramble? Am I missing something? Thanks!

Low and slow! Stir gently thru the cooking time.

I always use whole milk or half and half in scrambled, and water when making an omelet. I think I learned that on a tv cooking show years ago. Works for me!!

Tyler Florence made scrambled eggs on one of his shows, saying to cook them on low heat and stir constantly. I’ve made them that way every since. The come out very creamy. BTW – the mac and cheese was fabulous!

Adding some water is the secret I was taught. I have never used ice water, just tap water.

Yes, very low heat works for me.

I have not tried it but I have heard if you whisk a little pancake mix in with your eggs they will be fluffy.

I've heard that's what Waffle House does for their scrambled eggs, add a bit of pancake batter.

These light and fluffy scrambled eggs are a snap to put together for a big crowd. I usually make 2 pans for our Christmas Brunch, and I never have much left over!

I've made this egg recipe several times. It's really good, and works very well for making several servings at once, plus it frees you up for making your other dishes.

When I make this recipe, I put the cheese on last and stick it under the broiler to melt the cheese. They come out like regular scrambled eggs then. If I don't put them under the broiler I come out with not nice looking scrambled eggs.

I beat my eggs briefly with a little milk and onion powder. I pour them into a cold pan and then turn the heat on low. I add shredder cheddar cheese half way through a run the spatula through the eggs every so often so nothing burns. When my eggs are done I turn off the heat, top the eggs with a little more shredded cheese and place a lid on top the pan so the cheese can melt. Fluffy, thick and cheesy eggs every time. It's one of our favorites.

Don't beat the eggs too much and they will stay thicker.
May 15, 2013 7:24 am
Thanks LH! I look forward to trying and seeing which way works for me!

I watched GordonRamsay do scram eggs once and he broke the eggs right into the pan and then stirred with a rubber spatula in the pan, and kept removing from heat and then putting back on. I also remember that he said not to season while cooking, but after. I've been making my eggs like this since, and they turn out pretty good.
