Perfect Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled eggs are one of the easiest and quickest complete proteins out there. I’ve used them in a pinch for not just breakfast but lunch and dinner too. It’s the perfect answer for that dreaded question “What’s for dinner?” On those days where you’re lucky to have made it to dinner time at all, let alone know what to eat, grab eggs and you’ve got it made! They are so versatile you can do so many things with them!
You can rest easy knowing you’re giving your family and loved ones a nutritional meal when you serve eggs. Did you know that one egg has only 75 calories and 7 grams of high-quality protein. With only 1.6 grams of saturated fat and iron, vitamins, minerals and carotenoids, they are a powerhouse of disease-fighting nutrients. Including lutein and zeaxanthin. So heat up the pan, it’s time to have some eggs!

Let’s Make Scrambled Eggs!
It may take a little bit longer than you thought but, trust me, it’s worth the wait for these perfect delicate eggs! Add a side of bacon and this is the perfect breakfast!
- Melt: In a non stick skillet over medium low heat melt the butter
- Whisk: In a small bowl whisk together the eggs and milk.
- Pour: Once the butter has melted pour the egg mixture in the pan. Wait until you see a thin layer of egg cooking around the edges. Using a rubber spatula, move the eggs around the pan until they look fluffy and soft. Remove from heat when they look soft and slightly runny.
- Serve: Salt and pepper to your taste, top with chives if you desire and serve immediately.
Tips for the Best Egg Breakfast
- Whisk: This is a critical step, don’t underdo it. Ditch the fork and cereal bowl and get a good-sized bowl and whisk. Beat the eggs till all the yolks and whites are totally combined with no globby streaks. It should be light and airy. Whisking it will whip that air into the eggs to help them be fluffy and soft.
- Eggs: Whatever you buy and wherever you buy your eggs, get good quality eggs, it matters.
- Seasoning: Wait till after you cook the eggs to season them with salt and pepper. Adding it in the beginning draws out the moisture in the eggs, making them watery.
- Milk: Eggs can be very easy to overcook without the fat in the dairy. The milk results in creamy, moist, and softer eggs than if you left it out.
- Secret Cooking Method: Remember it’s low and slow!! Don’t get in a hurry. The pan should be low enough that when the eggs are poured in, nothing happens. No sizzling. Trust me.
- Wait: You have to wait till that thin layer of the cooked egg begins on the edges before you stir.
- Stir: A rubber or silicone spatula is a must. The flexibility of the spatula allows you to hug the contours of the pan and get a really clean swipe/fold each time you push the eggs around.
- Remove: Make sure to remove them from the pan when you still think they’re a bit too wet. They’ll continue to cook once removed.
