Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

Ever since I was a little girl, I have been pretty particular when it comes to my eggs.

From a young age I was taught that scrambled eggs really meant deliciously, fluffy eggs that pretty much melt in your mouth.

My grandma first taught me and now it is a traditional dish I make for my own family and I thought I just had to share it.

There are truly a few “secrets” that you need to know to ensure these eggs come out perfect and oh so FLUFFY!

What is the secret ingredient for scrambled eggs?

For my fluffy scrambled eggs, milk and butter are the secret ingredients but you can also use sour cream, heavy whipping cream or half and half in place of the milk.

Why do people put milk in eggs?

People put milk in eggs to give the eggs a creamy and fluffy texture. It also makes your eggs moist, light and fluffy.

Fluffy Scrambled Eggs Tips

  • You need to ensure you add milk instead of water.
  • Make sure you scramble the eggs and mix in the mix thoroughly.
  • You can also use any milk.
  • Cook the eggs SLOW and I am talking low to medium-low heat. As they cook, slowly take a spatula and push the eggs towards the center. Continue doing this until they are cooked. Yes it is more time consuming but it helps ensure they end up fluffy.

What You Need To Make Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Butter
  • Salt (add more or less for taste)
  • Pepper (add more or less for taste)
  • Fork
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Stove
  • Frying Pan
  • Spatula

How to Make Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

To start, you will want to crack your eggs into a bowl. I wanted to make a large batch for my family for breakfast so I cracked 6 eggs to begin with.

Next, you will use your fork or a whisk to whip the eggs. You want to whip them until all of the eggs break and are mixed well. This might take you several minutes but I promise in the end, it will be worth it!

Once all of your eggs are mixed, add the milk, salt and pepper and continue mixing. You want the milk to be blended right into the egg mixture. In the end, it should all look one color.

Turn your stovetop on low-medium heat and set your frying pan on top. Do not add the butter to your pan until right before you pour your egg mixture into it or you will end up getting an ugly browning on the bottom of your eggs.

Add the butter and once it begins to melt, move the butter around to coat the entire pan and then immediately dump the egg mixture inside. Allow this to cook for about 2-3 minutes until you start to see the edges cook a bit.

Take your spatula and gently push the egg mixture from the outside edges inward towards the middle. You will start to see the eggs “fluff” up right in front of your eyes. Continue doing this step until your eggs start cooking and getting nice and fluffy. The secret to these eggs is cooking slow and fluffing the eggs as they cook.

Once you see that most of the milk is cooked out, you can turn off the heat and remove the eggs from the pan.

Remember the real secret is cooking slow, and adding the milk. It will truly make your eggs the fluffiest and dreamiest eggs you’ve ever had!
