Have you ever wondered how restaurants make such good scrambled eggs? Even small diners and greasy spoon restaurants seem to make the best scrambled eggs. This recipe will show you how to make delicious, fluffy scrambled eggs at home, just like the kind you get at a restaurant or diner.
The key is using butter melted in the pan first, and an egg mixture that is beaten with 1 tablespoon of milk per large egg. The mixture should be beaten briskly with a whisk, creating a very creamy mixture that’s full of air bubbles. The more air bubbles, the better! This also assures that the eggs are well beaten. Once you pour the egg mixture into the pan, stir in gently until curds start to form. Keep mixing until the eggs are nice and fluffy!
If you want to add any special seasonings, such as onion or garlic powder, gently sprinkle it in once the eggs are beginning to set. This allows the mixture to have time to cook at the proper consistency and for the air bubbles to remain intact.
Scrambled eggs are a wonderful breakfast item and are very versatile. You can really spice them up anyway you want! Just be sure to follow this easy recipe and you’ll make your scrambled eggs as rich and fluffy as your favorite diner.
