The addition of onion is different and pretty good. I also added some chopped ham and cheddar cheese.

This was ok, better than plain but I wouldn't call it perfect-- depth of flavor wasn't what I expected.

The key to fluffy eggs is to remember NOT to overbeat them. Beat them until they are JUST scrambled. If you beat them too much they will turn out flat. Also, I prefer my eggs without the milk or a very small amount added.

Very good eggs, not perfect, but they are good. I used onion powder. Good idea.

Delicious. I didn't have much time in the kitchen this morning or else I would have topped it with some sliced tomato and grated cheese. I will definitely be experimenting with our favorite omelet combinations. Thanks, Whitney!

Loved the lessons over scrambled eggs i learned from making this recipe:) Never knew about the whisking to get fluffy eggs or about not cooking them until they're cooked when still in the pan. Very good recipe. Thanks Whitney:)

My husband loved it!! The onion really gives it a good flavor...I did add cheese which made it taste even better

I left out the onion because I don't care for them. All in all this was just okay. I think I would prefer to add the pepper at the end. Also I think I like my eggs better without milk.
