Welcome to our eggs series. Egg dishes are a basic that everyone can master. They take very little time, and can go from breakfast to dinner. Our Back to the Basics Egg Series will focus on just that. We will
show instruct you on how to make the “perfect” eggy breakfast treat, and how to make one of our favorite meals using eggs. Kind of like always having a staple on hand.
Scrambled eggs are something that we eat often on weekends. Either plain or with an assortment of fillings: mushrooms, spinach, cheeses, tomatoes. The choices are really limitless. As well the eggs could be made into a scramble or an omelet.
We think the key to the perfect scrambled egg is all in how you cook it. You want it to be cooked through but still slighly moist. We have been trying out some different techniques and finally came up with what is our favorite scrambled eggs or as Maggie likes to call them “butter eggs”. The key is adding some butter to the frying pan, as well as some butter with the eggs that you are mixing up. Then over medium-low heat, you want to continuing whisk the eggs with a fork or a whisk, until they are soft and moist, and slightly fluffy. After the eggs are cooked, season with a little salt and pepper. Do not add the salt before cooking; this will dry the eggs out.
Recipe: Scrambled Egg
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon butter, divided in half
- kosher salt, a pinch
- fresh ground pepper, a pinch
Melt half of the butter over low heat, in a large frying plan. Cut the remainder of the butter cut into small pieces. While the butter is melting, whisk the eggs with the butter pieces. The butter will be in chunks. Pour into the frying pan and whisky with a fork or a wire whisk until cooked through, not browned, but still moist. Season with salt and pepper. Serve. Eat.
* if you want to add fresh herbs, do so just before pouring into the frying pan.
When we opt for the dinner scrambled egg, it is usually in the form of a frittata, Spanish Tortilla (egg omelet) or a torta, again, you really can add anything from basic potatoes to chorizo. You decide how you want to spice things up. It is a wonderful dinner alternative when served with a simple green salad.
