  1. In a cup or small bowl, whisk together the eggs, mayonnaise and water using a fork. Melt margarine in a skillet over low heat. Pour in the eggs, and stir constantly as they cook. Remove the eggs to a plate when they are set, but still moist. Do not over cook. Never add salt or pepper until eggs are on plate, but these are also good without.

Moist, glossy, and absolutely delicious. It works best to whisk the mayo and water together first, then whisk in the eggs. I use Kraft mayo and follow the recipe exactly, but increase it for larger amounts. HINT: The "salad dressing" option in this recipe is referring to Miracle Whip (or the like), NOT prepared dressings like Ranch or Italian. HINT #2: For best results, I recommend using real mayo, not Miracle Whip.

Hmmm. Tastes no different from the scrambled eggs I've always made that don't have mayonnaise in them. I can't imagine what mayonnaise adds that makes them better, it's just oil and more egg. Perhaps it's the beating to get the mayonnaise incorporated or the gentle cooking the recipe advises. Adding mayo to scrambled eggs made me feel weirdly icky for some unexplainable reason and since I couldn't detect any benefit from it, I won't try it again. It wasn't bad, just not better.

As a person who does not like eggs, I was excited to try these with such glowing reviews. I tried not to overcook them having to put them back in the pan twice and they still came out mushy and grainy. I used Hellmans. Ketchup couldn't even save them.

Sorry to rain on the parade, but I didn't much like the mayo taste. I'll be sticking with my 2 egg/tbsp milk/s&p scrambley recipe. Delicious!

I prefer regular scrambled eggs. Too much salad dressing ruins the taste. Sorry.

I found this not good at all and I love mayo.

I didn't like the mayo flavor. Used Best Foods/Hellmanns.

It tastes alright, but I just couldn't shake the feeling that I was eating egg salad, not scrambled eggs. I'd attribute that to the mayo. Next time, I think I'll use sour cream or some sort of dressing.
