Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Salt and pepper – to taste

Instructions

  • Break eggs into a bowl. Add in salt (and pepper if you are adding).
  • Whisk well. Try it whisk for couple of minutes so eggs will turn fluffy.
    Pro-Tip: if you like cheesy scrambled eggs, add your favorite cheese now. Grate it and whisk it with eggs. Cheddar cheese, mozzarella are best.
  • Into a non stick pan add butter. Melt butter and coat it all around the pan in medium low heat.
  • Add egg mixture. Wait for few seconds for the base of the eggs to settle.
  • Now using rubber or silicone spatula gently sweep the egg around and fold. This will move the cooked eggs from the base onto the top, allowing raw eggs at the top to spread down and preventi eggs from over cooking.
  • It’s crucial to move the eggs gently by moving around and folding it and pausing for 2 to 3 seconds between folds to allow eggs to cook.
  • As you scoop and gently fold the eggs it forms a pile of soft curd.
  • Continue to cook by constantly sweeping around and folding eggs until eggs hold together and forms a loose custard-like mound that are barely set and still can spread. Eggs will be slightly underdone.
  • Doesn’t take more than 60 seconds (when you cook 3-4 eggs at a time). I timed it!
  • Remove skillet from heat, as residue heat of the pan will continue to cook the eggs.
  • Transfer to a plate or serving dish immediately.
    Pro-Tip: DO NOT let eggs sit in the skillet even for few seconds. Remove from heat and quickly transfer to serving dish.
  • Serve egg scramble with toasted bread, with croissant, bagel, baguette, or any bread. With crispy bacon on the side, pure bliss!

Notes

  • Use best quality eggs.
  • Use non stick skillet to make cloud like fluffy and soft eggs.
  • Butter in small amounts is crucial to help not just grease the pan so eggs don’t stick, but also helps flavor it.
  • Milk is optional. I promise you WILL get soft, moist eggs without adding any milk. Cream can be used too for richer taste.
  • Silicone or rubber spatula is IDEAL. It's flexibility helps sweep the eggs clean from the sides of the skillet creating a beautiful soft curd.
  • Constantly scoop and fold the eggs. Eggs will come together and form soft curds. The bigger the curd, the less creamy eggs is. Smaller curd, perfect moist fluffy eggs.
  • Do not stir eggs rapidly in one constant direction. You want to sweep and fold the eggs. Over stirring will break down the curd and overcook eggs turning it dry.
  • Do NOT OVER COOK eggs. Remove skillet from heat as soon as you see no more raw eggs spread around the pan.
  • It’s done when eggs hold together and forms a loose custard-like mound that are barely set and still can spread.
