Easy Scrambled Egg Recipes For Creamy And Fluffy Eggs That Beginners Can Cook

Easy scrambled egg recipes


Consisting of only eggs, the cheapest protein available, scrambled eggs are an affordable and easy way to pick up cooking. While the dish may look simple, its technique is hard to master. Take your eye away from the stove for just a few seconds, and the eggs might turn from delightfully creamy to dangerously rubbery. While there are numerous types of scrambled eggs, they can largely be broken down into two schools: creamy and fluffy. The difference between these two varieties is the size of the egg curds which give different textures. Read on to see how you can whip up these easy scrambled egg recipes.


Creamy Scrambled Eggs

The key to creamy scrambled eggs is constant movement and low heat. By moving them around all the time, pockets of air and steam will be removed, resulting in extra smooth and silky eggs. The eggs take slightly longer to cook, requiring around five minutes from start to finish. To prevent the eggs from being overcooked while sitting on the pan for too long, prepare all the ingredients and equipment beforehand.

Start by beating three eggs with a fork in a mixing bowl. Season with a touch of salt and a knob of butter. The butter gives an added touch of creaminess, making the eggs velvety smooth.

Scramble the eggs around, until the curds are broken into small pieces. Keep a firm eye on the eggs. Remember, the secret to creamy scrambled eggs is to keep them moving around on low heat.

Sir the eggs constantly and keep cooking them until they are almost set without any runny bits. 

When the eggs look rich and creamy, transfer them onto a plate and serve immediately. Sprinkle with a touch of black pepper.

Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

The scrambled eggs found in McDonald’s Big Breakfast are similar to fluffy scrambled eggs. Unlike the creamy version, these eggs are moved around less. This allows them to trap air, giving large moist curds. As for the technique, the key is to fold the eggs until they become moist and solid, instead of violently scrambling them together.

Start by aggressively beating the eggs in a mixing bowl. Make sure that the yolks and whites are combined so that there wouldn’t be any extra lumpy pieces later. Season with salt.

Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan on medium heat. It’s important to swirl the butter around the pan so that the eggs will not stick. 

When the butter has fully melted and begins to sizzle slightly, put the heat to low and add the eggs. The eggs have to enter a hot pan to form its shape immediately.

Don’t stir the eggs right away. Give some time for them to set and cook by themselves. After five seconds, start cooking the eggs by pushing the edges to the centre to form large curds.

Be gentle when cooking the eggs. I like to use a rubber spatula and large folding motions that encourage the eggs to develop large curds.

The eggs are done when they’re no longer runny but still have large shiny parts remaining.

Ingredients:
3 eggs, room temperature

  3. Let the eggs cook for around five seconds before pushing the edges to the centre to form large curds. Continue to fold the eggs from time to time, until no liquid eggs remain. 
  4. Transfer the scrambled eggs onto a plate and serve immediately. Sprinkle with a touch of black pepper.
