How to Make The Absolute BEST Scrambled Eggs Recipe
Eggs have got to be the easiest and healthiest item to cook up. Not only are they loaded with protein and a good source for Vitamin D. Now throw in a little milk and a dash of butter in the skillet and you have the absolute best scrambled eggs recipe EVER! Below are the ingredients you will need:
- Fresh Eggs
- Salt and Pepper (optional)
We are going to keep it simple today but there are loads of extras you can add to the scrambled eggs. My boys are a little picky so we will keep it super simple. Add your own salt and pepper as needed once the meal is served up.
Tips for Making the Best Scrambled Eggs
Be sure to print this and use up the extra space to jot down your notes on what you add to this recipe. I can’t wait to hear what you have to share so scroll down and comment. In the photo above I serve these up with premade sausage I get at Aldi. The meal in the photo above takes about 10 minutes to make. Sometimes I like to add green onions and diced tomatoes to the hot skillet just before the eggs are done. You can also mix in fresh herbs from your garden.
Here are few tips that guarantee the fluffiest and very tasty eggs. I’ve also included some of my favorite images from the kitchen while cooking these up.
- Always use a sturdy nonstick frying pan.
- Add real butter to the hot skillet and make sure it evenly covers the pan before pouring in the egg mix.
- Use a whisk to mix the egg with milk or cream.
- FRESH EGGS is a must!
- Use a rubber spatula when cooking eggs.

- 6 large eggs
- 1/4 cup half-n-half ( or milk)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- pepper and salt to taste
- fresh chopped herbs (optional)
- In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the eggs,
- Slowly add half-n-half, and salt (if desired) until the mixture is uniform in color with a little foam.
- Melt the butter in nonstick pan over medium heat, until the butter coats the whole pan and just starts to foam.
- Add the eggs to the center of the pan (eggs should cover the entire bottom of the pan) put lid on and reduce eat to medium.
- Wait for the edges to just barely start to set, then using a rubber spatula, gently push the eggs from one end of the pan to the other letting the wet egg move to bottom of skillet.
- Return lid on to pan to finish cooking – or until the eggs are not liquid.
- When the eggs are cooked they will look fluffy and should not look wet.
- Remove from the heat when the eggs still shimmer with some moisture. You can push to side and add cut tomatoes and green onions or sausage that needs heated.
- Finish with freshly cracked pepper and chopped fresh herbs on top of the eggs that have been moved to plate.
