I read this recipe and thought, surely the author does not mean 2 eggs for 7 Tablespoons of milk. (7 Tablespoons of milk is just shy of 1/2 Cup). Nonetheless, I pressed on and made the recipe as directed, mainly to save a novice cook the trouble. Sure enough, it was too milky; the liquid separated and ran all over the serving plate.
This is exactly how my father in law made eggs. He always told me that the key to good eggs is wisking the egg-milk mixture until it's frothy. He didn't cook his in olive oil, it was either a hunk of butter or a hunk of bacon grease. He also told me that you had to keep eggs moving in the skillet to prevent scorching. This is still my go-to quick scrambled egg recipe.
The title doesn't lie- these scrambled eggs are very fluffy! I'd go a little lighter than recommended on the salt, though. I put the 1/2 teaspoon in and it was pretty salty.
Ok so I don't like scrambled eggs but my kids love my moms. So trying to duplicate mine always came out flat and over cooked. Everyone just said add more milk, but never could quantify how much was the right amount. Well thank you for telling me exactly how much milk to add!! This worked out great. I do place the eggs on a paper towel before serving as the juices creep the kids out.
