Easy Scrambled Eggs Recipe


Where have you gotten the best scrambled eggs you’ve ever had? Chances are you haven’t made the best at home.

The best scrambled eggs always come from a good hotel or restaurant. And try as you may, you’re never able to get the same results at home. For years you’ve used the standard recipe of eggs, milk, and maybe a little butter in the pan. And the results have always been ok at best.

Here’s the secret to awesome restaurant/hotel style scrambled eggs. Don’t use milk! That’s right. The key to awesome scrambled eggs is to skip the milk, and use 1 tablespoon of butter per egg, and 1 teaspoon of margarine or whipped butter per egg. All the milk you’ve always been adding has only served to thin out the taste and consistence of the eggs, while causing you to overcook them. By using just a tablespoon of water and teaspoon of margarine per egg, the eggs stay true to their real taste and consistency.

Another big key is to not add salt and pepper until after the eggs are cooked.
