I’ve perfected the art of fluffy scrambled eggs. They are so simple to make + are a major crowd pleaser in my home, with a couple of my easy tips + tricks!

Breakfast (or brunch) is my favorite meal. The dishes are usually fairly straight forward + the meal sets the tone for the rest of my day. A great breakfast provides energy + is filling but not weighty or too indulgent. I have mentioned it many times here on the blog that we love breakfast for dinner. However, that does not mean we don’t also focus on this meal in the morning hours.

With 2 small kids + getting out the door every morning for work, time is of the essence. While it is easy to throw an eggo in the microwave + call it good, I usually like to feed cohen (and the rest of us) something a bit more substantial. Now, I will not lie, a frozen waffle with a dollop of syrup is delicious but I try to keep this option for emergency situations only.

One of our family favorites is fluffy scrambled eggs. Cohen loves them, especially when I sprinkle in some cheese. Ryan + I are fans because we can easily flavor them up with a couple dashes of hot sauce or pile into a tortilla with some diced ham for a makeshift burrito as we head out the door. I cook scrambled eggs so regularly, I think I could do it in my sleep.

Yet, there are a couple tips + tricks to keep your eggs from turning into a pile of over cooked rubber… or even worse, some slimy mush.

Tips + Tricks:

For Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

 

use the freshest, pasture raised eggs available. (I am a huge fan of vital farms)

whisk your eggs until bubbles form in the bowl 

warm your pan over medium-low heat… fluffy eggs are achieved by cooking them slowly

let your eggs set up before you start pulling them towards the center of the pan in a folding motion

use a silicone spatula to gently fold your eggs 

take your eggs off the stove slightly before they are done, as they will continue to cook a bit more on your plate

 

Eggs are so good for you + so simple to make. And while I am not getting paid for this endorsement, I cannot say enough about vital farms. Their certified humane® pasture raised eggs are from hens that forage on 108 sq. ft. of pasture, per hen!

    Learning to take eggs off the stove slightly before they’re done was SUCH a game changer for me! It’s now my life’s work to help other people learn that tip 🙂
