Scrambled eggs are a fabulous go-to meal, no matter the time of day. And if Lady Mary Crawley can make scrambled eggs, anyone can!
Even though they are easy to whip up, you can still make bad scrambled eggs. Trust me, I’ve been there. Here is how to make perfect scrambled eggs!
- Whisk together eggs (usually 2 per person) with a pinch of salt and pepper and about 1 teaspoon of water per egg. Julia Child added water to her eggs when making omelettes to keep them light and fluffy. If it’s good enough for Julia’s omelettes, it’s good enough for my scrambles!
- Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add about 1/2 tablespoon of butter per every 2 eggs to the pan. Be sure to use a pan size that makes sense small skillet for a of couple eggs, larger skillet for a big batch.
- Once the butter has melted and is starting to bubble add the egg mixture. Stir constantly with a rubber spatula. You can also add mix-ins at this point.
- Here’s the trick! Take the eggs off the stove when they look mostly done but are still a bit watery. Remove from the heat, keep stirring, then transfer to your plate.
That’s it! Super easy!
