7 Scrambled Egg Recipes

Here a a few popular types of scrambled egg ideas to create using the recipe above.

  1. Scrambled Eggs With Cheese

    Awww yum, everyone loves scrambled egg with cheese.

    Add ¾ cup grated tasty cheese to whisked ingredients.

    But adding cheese will make them less fluffy.
    If you just sprinkle grated cheese over the top when cooked you should avoid a flat result.

  2. Scrambled Eggs With Smoked Salmon

    Adding smoked salmon will make a flavoursome seafood savoury dish.

    1. Prepare 30 grams of sliced smoked salmon.
    2. Scramble your eggs as per the above recipe.
      Do not cook eggs until dry.

    You can create your dish with sour cream by substituting the milk with sour cream in the above recipe, but you need to:

    1. Whisk the eggs in the bowl first, and then add the sour cream, it'll mix in a little bit better as the sour cream can be lumpy.

    • Half small brown onion, chopped.

How To Make Scrambled Eggs In Microwave

Scrambled eggs can be easily made in the microwave, here are two ways.
I must warn you that when cooking in the microwave can sometimes result in a bit of a rubbery result.

You will need the basic recipe mix, then cook either way;

Microwave cooking method 1

  1. Cover with plastic wrap, venting one corner.
  2. Microwave on Medium High (70% power) for about 1½ minutes, gently breaking up the curds with a fork, several times during cooking.
  3. Let stand for 1 minute before serving.

Microwave cooking method 2

  1. Microwave the eggs on Medium High (70% power), uncovered, for 45 seconds.
  2. Gently stir the eggs with a fork.
  3. Microwave until fluffy and set but not completely dry, about 45 more seconds.
  4. Serve immediately.

Secrets To Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Here's 8 top tips for scrambling eggs perfectly.

  1. Do not cook in the microwave. Although I tell you how to above, you will rarely get the results you want.
  2. To make perfect scrambled eggs, you want to whip a lot of air into the eggs.
  3. 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.
  4. For firm and fluffy eggs, go for higher and quicker.
    If you'd prefer a texture that is 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.
  5. For larger curds;
    For larger curds scoop the eggs in towards the middle of the pan as they set, this will make larger curds.
  6. For finer curds;
    To create a finer curd the egg mixture is stirred very thoroughly during cooking to give a soft, fine texture.
  7. 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 them well done.)
  8. 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.
