Fluffy scrambled eggs just might be the most popular egg breakfast dish out there. Scrambled eggs are so popular in fact, that both Chef Gordon Ramsay and Chef Thomas Keller each teach a Masterclass on how to make scrambled eggs! Whether you like your scrambled eggs with cheese, or finished with melted butter, the next time you make scrambled eggs, follow these helpful tips for the fluffiest eggs ever!
1. Use High quality eggs
There’s no better way to get fluffy scrambled eggs than by making your scrambled eggs with a high quality egg, like a Happy Egg! Using healthy eggs with rich nutritious yolks will ensure your scramble is moist, fluffy, and delicious every time you make them.
2. Drop the fork
When beating the scrambled eggs, use a whisk instead of a fork. A whisk has more prongs, which creates more air flow during the beating process.
3. ADD A DAIRY
Adding a tablespoon or two of milk, sour cream, heavy whipping cream, or our personal favorite, crème fraîche, to the egg mixture will help the eggs remain moist and fluffy as they cook. If you’re unable to add dairy to the eggs, don’t worry. You can still achieve fluffy scrambled eggs without milk!
4. Use a non-stick pan
Non-stick pans are great for scrambled eggs because the non-stick surface allows you to easily move the eggs around the pan, which helps form soft egg curds. Creating soft egg curds is the trick to making fluffy eggs.
5. Use low heat
Eggs are pretty delicate, and once they get cooking, they tend to set pretty quickly. For fluffy scrambled eggs, try not to rush the cooking process by using medium or high heat. Always cook scrambled eggs on a low heat setting.
6. Don’t overcook the eggs
If the eggs look like they’re cooking too quickly, remove the pan from the heat for 10-20 seconds, and then return the pan to the heat. This will slow the cooking, and help the egg curds stay soft.
7. Use a rubber spatula
Once the eggs start to set a little, use a rubber spatula to gently move the eggs around the non-stick pan. Continually stirring the eggs increases the amount of air in the eggs, which results in pillow-soft scrambled eggs.
8. Add a last-minute dairy dollop
Adding a dollop of cold dairy to the pan when the eggs are almost set will stop the eggs from overcooking, and leave your scrambled eggs rich, creamy and extra fluffy.
9. Don't forget the toppings
Sprinkle some finely chopped chives, course salt, cheese, everything seasoning, or whatever topping your heart desires over the top of the eggs for the ultimate egg breakfast experience!
