While eggs beaten in the usual fashion will turn into good scrambled eggs, there are many techniques that you can use to make your scrambled eggs fluffier. There are many ideas on how you can achieve this and most of them are from personal experiences of people who seek to have better, creamier and fluffier scrambled eggs that they can eat as a meal or served over toast for breakfast. Below are some ideas on how to make fluffy scrambled eggs.
- Break the eggs into a bowl and add one tablespoon of water for every egg that you will use. Add salt and pepper and beat the eggs for a few seconds with a fork. Add a few drops of vegetable oil or a pat of butter to a non-stick pan heated over medium low heat. Pour the beaten egg and allow to cook, stirring every few minutes to break the curds. Tilt the pan to the side so that the uncooked eggs will flow to the side of the pan to cook. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate before all the liquid has evaporated.
- Some people use fresh milk instead of water and will add one tablespoon of milk for every egg they will use. The milk will make the eggs creamier and fluffier. Others though think that with the longer cooking time for milk, the eggs will harden before the milk is cooked and will actually toughen the eggs. Some substitute cream to milk and for them cream makes the scrambled eggs fluffier.
- Separate the yolks from the whites and beat the yolks for a few seconds with a fork. Whisk the whites until they are frothy before adding the yolks and beating the mixture rapidly for a few seconds. Pour the mixture on a non-stick pan heated over medium low heat. Allow the eggs to cook for a few seconds before you stir and tilt the skillet. Remove from heat when the curds are very shiny while some are still not fully cooked. The remaining heat from the pan will be enough to fully cook the rest of the eggs.
- Cook the eggs over a double boiler to make your scrambled eggs really fluffy. The water should be simmering when you pour the beaten eggs on the pan on top of the double boiler. The eggs will be cooked very slowly, making it fluffier. Stir every few minutes to cook the eggs evenly. Be prepared to wait for several minutes when you employ this method but you will be assured that your scrambled eggs will be fluffy.
- The French cook scrambled eggs differently. Break the eggs into a bowl and mix them gently. Pour the mixture on a skillet and cook over low heat. This will allow the curds to form very gradually. When the eggs are starting to thicken, add a few slivers of cold butter, or some cold cream or cold grated cheese taken out of the refrigerator. The introduction of the cold ingredients will temper the heat and make the cooking process longer. Estimated cooking time will be at least 20 minutes but you will have better and fluffier scrambled eggs.
The above recipes are just some that will ensure that your scrambled eggs will be fluffy. Allow the eggs to start setting in the pan before your start stirring and push the cooked curds into the center of the pan while tilting the pan to let the runny eggs to move to the side of the pan.
