Soft-Scrambled Eggs


Best enjoyed with toasted bread and a sprinkle of sea salt. If you prefer your scrambled eggs firm and rubbery, that’s okay (sort of), but this recipe may not be your best pick. These scrambled eggs turn out super creamy, fluffy, and silky – a true kitchen delight. Feel free to add extras like Parmesan, cream cheese, hot sauce, or fresh herbs, but these soft-scrambled eggs shine on their own. They’re a fantastic example of how basic ingredients and a touch of culinary skill can create something truly amazing.

Secret to Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Making perfect scrambled eggs isn’t a mystery—it just requires following a few simple rules:

  1. Add salt before heating. Sprinkle salt on your eggs before whisking them. This helps the eggs thicken at a lower temperature, resulting in a more tender texture. The science behind it involves egg proteins and their electrical charge, but we won’t dive too deep into that. If you’re curious, check out Harold McGee’s “On Food and Cooking.”
  2. Use low heat for tender eggs. Cook your scrambled eggs slowly over low heat for the best results.
  3. Stir right away and keep stirring. As soon as the whisked eggs hit the hot pan, start stirring immediately. This step is crucial for the success of your scrambled eggs.

How To Make Scrambled Eggs – Simplified Version

Making delicious scrambled eggs is super easy, despite all the fancy talk. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Mix two eggs per person with a pinch of salt until well-blended.
  2. Heat butter in a skillet on medium-low heat until it starts to bubble.
  3. Pour in the eggs and immediately stir with a rubber or silicone spatula. Keep stirring vigorously.
  4. 4. Done! After about two minutes, remove from heat. The eggs will keep cooking, so transfer them to a bowl or plate quickly.
