Tips for scrambled eggs

Here's 7 top tips for scrambling eggs perfectly.

  1. To make perfect scrambled eggs, you want to whip a lot of air into the eggs.
  2. For soft and creamy eggs, cook them low and slow.
    For a 'French-style' soft scramble you need to stir and fold eggs with butter over the gentlest heat until the eggs are cooked but still entirely pourable.
    That gentle heat and consistent stirring produces eggs that are so soft and creamy, you have to eat them out of a bowl and with a spoon.
  3. For firm and fluffy eggs, go for higher and quicker.
    If you'd prefer scrambled eggs that are firm enough to eat with a fork, you'll need to cook them quickly over a medium-high heat.
    Make sure your pan is hot before you even get started.
  4. Remove eggs from the heat as soon as possible.
    Once your eggs are just about set, take them off the heat. The residual heat in the pan will keep cooking them a bit,
    so if you take them off while they seem slightly underdone, they'll be perfect by the time you're ready to eat.
    (Unless, of course, you like your scrambled eggs well done.)
  5. Seasoning and adding toppings.
    Wait until the very end to add any salt to your scrambled eggs.
    Salt draws out moisture, so if you add it too soon or in the very beginning, it may dry out your eggs.

    Black pepper will burn and become bitter if seasoned before cooking.
    Save any other spices or ingredients that you want to add until the very end.
  6. No salt
    For a low sodium in scrambled eggs version, omit salt and use unsalted butter.
  7. Creamier Scrambled Eggs;
    Sour cream or thickened cream may be used in place of milk for a creamier and richer version.

Escoffier egg scramble

The classic French cooking method of using a double boiler as the heating source, which does not need adjustment as the direct heating method would.
The eggs are directly placed in the cooker and mixed during the heating and not before.

Cooking by this method prevents the eggs from browning while being cooked and gives aerated and creamy scrambled eggs.
This method was used in the "old classical kitchen" and guarantees the eggs are always cooked perfectly.

It is, however, more time-consuming than the modern skillet method, taking up to 40 minutes to ensure perfect quality.Escoffier.
