Soft Scrambled Eggs

On their own, fluffy, delicious scrambled eggs are pretty terrific. So sunny and warm! They’re one of my favorite comfort foods. And because so many of our favorite meal boards would not be complete them (think, waffles, pancakes, and build-your-own breakfast taco boards), we make scrambled eggs all the time. Oh my gosh. I’m so hungry now just thinking about it!

How to Soft Scramble Eggs

Getting soft scrambled eggs right is so easy. All it take is a bit of patience. If you rush things and use a pan that’s too hot, you end up with that crunchy ring around your pan and dried-out eggs. Yuck! Okay, enough talk. Let’s get to it!

In a large mixing bowl, first whisk the eggs with the salt and milk until pale yellow in color and no visible egg whites remain.

Then, in a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. When the butter is barely bubbling, add the eggs and cook, gently folding and pushing them around with a spatula, until the eggs form soft curds and are just barely set.
