How to Make Perfect Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are not difficult to make. In fact, this time around the girls did all the leg work for me. The trick to perfectly fluffy eggs is patience. I learned that in 9th grade Home-Ec. Thank you Mrs. Mouw. That little nugget of information has served me well.

Gather your ingredients for the perfect scrambled eggs: cheese, cream cheese, milk, salt, pepper and eggs.

Here is what you need

8 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream (half & half or milk will work too, but cream is the best)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
7-10 “dabs” of cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar
butter

Kids will enjoy helping crack the eggs for this easy scramble recipe.

Step 1:  Crack your eggs into a bowl (or a 4 cup measuring cup like we used here.)

Make sure you don't drop a whole egg in the yolks as we did here.

(Annie’s contribution.)

Princess was a little nervous to crack her first egg, but by her 3rd, she was cracking ’em like a pro.

Step 2:  Whisk eggs until all yolks are broken and well blended.

Whisk in the milk and mix the eggs together until completely combined.

Step 3:  Pour in half & half and add salt & pepper to taste; whisk well.

Add the salt and pepper, half and half and cream cheese to the egg mixture and keep whisking!

Step 4:  Add dabs of cream cheese. Don’t try to whisk any more.

Once the mixture is combined pour it into a frying pan,

Step 5:  Melt butter in pan over medium-low to low heat. Pour in egg mixture. Using knife or whisk, spread out cream cheese dabs so they aren’t all clumped together. Let set for a minute or two.

Spread out the cream cheese in the frying pan so it's not clumped together in your egg mixture.

Step 6: After eggs have set; stir ONE time. Just once. This is very important! Over-stirring scrambled eggs is the mistake most people make. The LESS you stir them, the fluffier and better they will turn out.

Once the eggs have set, you only need to stir them one time. This will keep them fluffy and result in perfect scrambled eggs. Sprinkle cheese on top of your scrambled egg mixture.

Step 7: After another minute, stir ONE time, then add shredded cheese. Wait another minute then stir once more. Lower heat if necessary.

After one minute, stir the scrambled eggs one more time.

Step 8: Wait another minute then flip eggs upside down to make sure they are evenly cooked. Cook for about one minute longer and they are done! Remove from heat and enjoy.
