The perfect scrambled eggsScrambled eggs are a popular dish made by whisking eggs together in a bowl, seasoning them with salt and pepper, and then cooking them in a pan with butter or oil over low to medium heat. They are often served as a breakfast or brunch dish and can be garnished with herbs, cheese, or other ingredients. There are many variations of scrambled eggs, such as adding milk or cream to make them creamier, or using different types of cheese or herbs to add flavour.
- Crack the eggs into a small bowl and beat them together with a fork or whisk. You can also add some milk or cream at this point, if desired, to make the eggs more tender and creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
- Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat and add the butter or oil. Once the butter is melted or the oil is hot, add the beaten eggs to the skillet.
- Use a rubber spatula to gently stir the eggs as they cook. Keep stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to prevent the eggs from sticking and to create soft curds.
- As soon as the eggs start to thicken and become opaque, remove them from the heat. The eggs will continue to cook from the residual heat.
- Serve the eggs immediately, and enjoy your perfect scrambled eggs!
