    The first thing that comes to mind when I think of breakfast is scrambled eggs. They’re a breakfast staple that are loved by all. Sometimes when I’m in a hurry I make microwave scrambled eggs, but let’s be honest…you can’t beat the real thing.

    How to make scrambled eggs

    1. Heat and grease the skillet. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Add the butter or grease lightly with cooking spray.
    2. Whisk the eggs. Add eggs and 2 Tablespoons of water to a bowl. Whisk for 1 minute.
    3. Scramble the eggs. Pour the eggs into the hot skillet. Using a spatula, begin to pull the cooked outer edge to the center and create circles in the middle. Keep stirring. Turn the heat off once the eggs are 95% done (they will continue to cook). S&P to taste.

    NOTE: For a little more flavor, mix in chopped chives or shredded cheese. For more heat, mix in salsa or hot sauce.

    The secret to perfect scrambled eggs

    I know scrambled eggs may seem simple to make, but there are a few helpful tips I’ve learned throughout the years to make them perfectly fluffy and soft.

    Check out my favorite tips and tricks below:

    • Use high quality and fresh eggs for better results. Don’t cook more than 6 at a time or the pan will get too crowded.
    • Add 2 Tablespoons of milk or water to create fluffier eggs.
    • Whisk the eggs for a good minute. The mixture should be light and completely mixed.
    • Lightly grease the skillet with non-stick oil or butter.
    • The key to perfectly soft scrambled eggs is to keep the heat low. Cooking them too fast will make them hard.
    • Season the eggs towards the end to avoid drawing moisture from the eggs.
    • Remove the eggs while they still seem a little wet, they will continue to cook in the pan once removed from the heat.
