Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Perfect Scrambled Eggs

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 6 large eggs
  • 6 teaspoons of low-fat milk (1 teaspoon for each egg)
  • 3 dashes of salt (1 dash for every two eggs)
  • 1 Tablespoon butter for frying
Heat a large non-stick frying pan to a setting just above medium. A 12-inch pan works well for 6 eggs.

Do not add butter yet. We just want to get the pan ready.

In large metal or glass mixing bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk and salt. Beat vigorously for 2 minutes.

Alternatively, you can place the eggs, milk and salt in a blender and blend for 20 to 25 seconds. Allow the mixture to set for a couple minutes to let the foam settle.

Melt the butter in the frying pan. As the very last of the butter is liquefying, add the egg mixture.

Do not stir immediately. Wait until the first hint of setting begins. Start the Martha Stewart scrambling technique ("Using a spatula or a flat wooden spoon, push eggs toward center while tilting skillet to distribute runny parts.")

Continue this motion as the eggs continue to set. Break apart large pieces as they form with your spoon or spatula. You will come to a point where the push-to-center technique is no longer cooking runny parts of the egg. Flip over all the eggs. Allow the eggs to cook 15 to 25 seconds longer.
Transfer eggs to serving plates. Add salt and pepper to taste.

A note about milk and water: Soy milk works effectively in the recipe. Whole milk lends an overly milky taste to the eggs. No-fat milk and water can both be used in place of the low-fat milk but the creamy texture of the finished product is reduced.

Perfect again (especially with a 1/3 cup cheese sprinkled on at the end). I've made this over 10 times. Thought it was time I gave my feedback and that feedback is... AWESOME! Thanks.

They should print this recipe on the inside of egg cartons. It worked that good!

Topped them off with shredded Pepper Jack cheese and had it with wheat toast. Awesome-o!

Believe it or not, a milkshake machine works even better than a blender (if you have one). It makes them fluffy as a cloud.

Try using orange juice instead of milk! Yum, it gives it a lovely flavor.

Easy to make and really good! I added a teaspoon of chicken stock for every two eggs and some chopped ham, and it was delicious - light, moist, and fluffy. Thanks for a great recipe!

The quintessential perfect basic scramble, note BASIC. Gotta laugh at those who say cheese is better or whole milk is too milky. Reading words like low-fat or not a specialty scramble is hard! Oh, and the cream of tartar suggestion? Excellent if you're not in a milk mood.

From PeteUK

If this were listed as a cheats method I may agree it is good, but certainly not perfect. The bain Marie (water bath) makes much better scrambled eggs, though it does take more effort.

From Gerald D.

Sorry but the best way is to make then in a pan (like you'd use to heat beans etc) not a frying pan. Beat eggs in a bowl, heat butter in the pan, wait until butter is sizzling but not brown, pour in eggs. Stir continually until eggs 30-40% cooked. Take off heat. Sir in milk or cream. Continue to stir until absorbed & eggs are as you like them. Beautiful! - Gerald Duniec

First time I ever attempted scrambled eggs. My 7 year old daughter says she doesn't like scrambled eggs -- yet they disappeared from her plate. Thanks!

Try to take it up a notch by adding a little chicken soup bouillon powder to the recipe!

From Delia

I was scrambling eggs this morning and I put some milk into the eggs and my son thought I was an idiot. He always criticizes me if I do something different, but I have always put milk in my eggs when they are scrambled.

I have never had luck with eggs, until I read this article. I added three slices of cut up ham to mine, and they were the best eggs I have ever had.
