How to Cook Scrambled Eggs (Recipes Kids Should Know Before Leaving Home)
Eggs are a really great thing to know how to cook no matter what age you are or what stage of life you are in. Eggs are great for all times of day, they are nutritious and, best of all, eggs are easy to cook! We’ve already written about how to make an omelet. Today we’re going to share instructions for how to cook scrambled eggs.
Most people probably think they know how to cook scrambled eggs, but the truth is it’s really easy to make scrambled eggs kind of gross. Luckily it’s also really easy to make them super delicious, you just need a little know how.
There are just a couple of things to keep in mind when making scrambled eggs that will make you an expert:
1. Don’t overcook the eggs.
The danger with scrambled eggs is that they can easily end up dry and rubbery. The trick is to take them off the stove just before you think they actually look done. There will still be some wet looking spots in the eggs – that’s a good thing! The eggs will keep cooking a little bit even after you take the pan off the heat, so taking them off a bit early means they’ll cook perfectly by the time they reach your plate.
2. Don’t over stir the eggs once they are in the pan.
When making scrambled eggs you want to make sure the eggs are very well beaten before you cook them. Once those eggs hit the pan, however, lay off on all that stirring action. Yes, you will be moving the eggs around while they cook to get them to scramble, but it doesn’t take a lot. We will explain in the directions below how to find that perfect balance.
Now go and scramble!
Are you excited to make the best scrambled eggs ever? Then let’s go! And remember, one of the other great benefits of an egg scramble is the fun you can have with mix ins! All kinds of vegetables, herbs and breakfast meats like bacon and sausage taste great when added to scrambled eggs. We will describe how to do that in the directions below.
