Creamy Scrambled Eggs are an excellent and delicious way to start your day. You scramble the eggs in the pan so there’s no need to dirty another dish! You can eat the eggs as is or add them to your favorite breakfast sandwich.
I love eggs. Like, I really love eggs. I eat them for breakfast almost every morning. Nothing beats waking up in the morning and preparing an easy, quick, and a delicious hot breakfast. Creamy Scrambled Eggs is a recipe everyone should master. I’ll show you How To Perfect Creamy Scrambled Eggs so you can make them any day of the week.
Gone are the days when you beat the eggs in a bowl before adding them to a hot pan. There’s no need to do that. Here’s what you need to do in order to Perfect Creamy Scrambled Eggs:
- Start by melting either a knob of butter or some coconut oil in a nonstick pan over low heat. I used coconut oil. Add the eggs directly to the pan.
2. DO NOT ADD SALT or any other seasonings at this stage. Adding salt too soon draws out the water. Using a heatproof rubber spatula, pop the yolks of the eggs and vigorously scramble them. Stirring breaks down the egg curds that are forming to make them smaller and creamer. You’ll want to keep the spatula moving continuously.

3. As you scramble the eggs with your spatula, occasionally lift the pan off the heat. You don’t want to cook scrambled eggs too quickly. If you do, the eggs can coagulate forcing the water out of the egg’s proteins strands resulting in runny eggs. If you periodically take the pan off the heat while you scramble, the result will be creamy, custardy eggs.
You can either lift the pan up while you scramble or move the pan to another burner that’s turned off. You will repeat this process 3-4 times.
4. When the eggs still look wet, but not runny, turn off the heat. There will be enough residual heat in the pan to finish cooking. At this point, you can add another small knob of butter to the eggs. Adding more butter at this stage will result in custardy eggs. I decided against adding additional butter and my eggs still turned out creamy AF.
At this point, you can add salt and/or your favorite herbs or seasonings.
This method produces the creamiest eggs you’ve ever eaten at home. You may even find there’s no reason to add milk or cheese to the eggs because the eggs will be creamy on their own! OK, I’m being dumb, there’s alway’s a reason to add cheese. Because cheese.
During the week I normally eat the eggs directly from the pan I cooked them in. That’s mostly because I’ve been without a kitchen sink for 7 weeks (due to the kitchen reno). I’m forced to do dishes in our garage’s utility sink which looks like a scientific experiment gone awry. However, on the weekends I have time to be Fancy-Schmancy and make those creamy eggs into a tasty sandwich.
True confession time, I can’t remember the last time I haven’t eaten eggs for breakfast. I avoid sugary breakfasts because I feel sick about an hour after I eat them. Eggs give me a boost of protein that keeps me going for longer throughout the day. I’m a creature of habit so I normally stick to two Creamy Scrambled Eggs, but every now and then I’ll scramble 1 egg and 2 egg whites. Or, if I’m really feeling adventurous I’ll make a fried egg and serve it on top of toast or cheese toast.
If you have a habit of scrambling your eggs with dairy and cheese I implore you to give this recipe a try. Once you know How To Perfect Creamy Scrambled Eggs you won’t need to add any extra ingredients to your eggs. Just the taste of the eggs alone will blow your mind. They are super delicious!
Alright, dear readers, I hope you have fun this weekend. The hubs and I will be working in the kitchen, hopefully getting that son of a bitch finished. We are so close. I’m looking forward to showing you what we’ve been up to! In the meantime, get in that kitchen of yours and whip up Creamy Scrambled Eggs! You and your taste buds will be glad you did 🙂
