Tips on Making the Best Scrambled Eggs For Your Breakfast Scramble

Aside from the delicious ingredients that we’re adding into this dish, another secret to making the best breakfast scramble would be making perfect scrambled eggs, just how you want it. We’ve got a couple of tips for making it:

  • Use a non-stick pan to make them soft and fluffy. Eggs have a tendency to stick to cast-iron pans. So, to avoid wasting eggs and time scrubbing them off the pan, use your trusty non-stick skillet pan. 
  • Preheat your pan then cook your eggs in low heat. Make sure to preheat your pan over medium-high heat first. Then turn the heat down to low once the beaten egg mixture has been poured to make sure the eggs don’t dry out when cooking. 
  • Whisk or mix your scrambled eggs fast enough to form curdles if you want them soft and moist. This is so that they won’t brown and dry out.
  • Remove the pan from the heat while stirring the eggs until curds form. Don’t worry about not cooking your eggs enough because they will continue to cook even when the pan is removed.

Now, you’re ready to make this quick and easy breakfast skillet! Discover more delicious recipes that you can make with scrambled eggs by checking out our CAQ section down below.

What goes with scrambled eggs for breakfast?

Aside from our tasty breakfast scramble, you can also easily give your scrambled eggs an upgrade with these recipes. You can add crunch into it by making our Mexican scrambled eggs or Colombian huevos pericos. Or you can make savory herb crepes for a new morning meal favorite.

Is it good to add milk to scrambled eggs?

Skip adding milk and cream to your scrambled eggs because they won’t necessarily make them fluffy or creamy. In addition, it can also take away the savory flavor of eggs and make your scrambled eggs rubbery. Using fresh, good quality eggs, olive oil and some butter will do the job just fine.
