Oh scrambled eggs, how I love you! Simple, delicious, and quick...you are one of the best breakfasts! Oddly enough, for a dish that is as easy as 1-2-3, no one really ever talks about how to make perfect scrambled eggs. It's not uncommon to see a plate of browned, rubbery eggs, that when bitten into taste overwhelmingly egg-y. Even scrambled eggs done properly aren't time consuming, it's more or less just a process of slowing down. Something most of us could use anyway.
The ingredients for scrambled eggs are easy and straightforward. Eggs, butter, salt and pepper. Although there are some rules!
Do not add any liquid to your eggs, we're using butter.
Do not season your eggs before cooking.
Do not whip your eggs before cooking.
Look, I just excluded a lot of steps for you...and trust me...they turn out great!
Toss your eggs into your desired cooking vessel. Turn your heat to medium. DO YOU HEAR ME?! Medium. Not medium high, not high, just medium. If your stove runs hot maybe a little under medium. You get tough, rubbery, egg-y tasting eggs when you overcook your eggs. Please don't overcook your eggs, ok? Please?
Now start stirring your eggs. Do not leave your eggs to just sit for any extended period of time, it's up to you to make sure they don't get brown on the bottom and soggy on top. Stir more often for a finer consistency, and less for a chunkier consistency.
We are halfway there!
Done! It's a good idea to turn the burner off before they are too your liking. The residual heat will cook them a little further. You can cook them a little more or a little less depending on your personal preference.
All that's left is to plate them, sprinkle with salt and pepper, add toast or bacon, a nice hot cup of coffee and you have breakfast! Oh, and let me tell you these eggs truly are delicious. They are velvety smooth, and have a lovely rich taste from the butter. So remember! Heat them slowly, add no seasoning, just butter, do not over cook, and you will have perfect eggs every time!
