Scrambled eggs are an easy classic to have any morning of the week for breakfast. The keys to making the most delicious scrambled eggs are the pan, the fat you cook with, what eggs you choose, and how hot you cook them.

All you need is some good cold grass-fed butter and local free-range organic eggs. Spending a little more on your eggs makes a huge difference and totally worth it when it comes to taste and what you are actually eating! Splurge, it’s worth it!

1. Prepare your ingredients

So, go ahead and gather your eggs, room temperate butter and cold butter, salt, and a couple of pieces of white bread. What’s scrambled eggs without some good old white toast to go with them.

To start off you want to get all of your ingredients together. It’s important to have everything ready ahead of time so that you aren’t scrambling (see what I did there, haha) to get things while you are cooking, that’s how things get burnt.

2. Prepare the eggs

You want to get a bowl and crack your eggs into the bowl. I have found that cracking the eggs on the inside of the bowl works best to alleviate the messy drips that happen when you crack eggs on the edge.

Be careful not to get any shells into the bowl. If you do, use a spoon or your finger to get it out. These shells can be tricky to get, but just slide the shell up the side of the bowl to get it out.

Using a fork, whisk the eggs together until they are pretty well incorporated. By that, I mean that the translucent part of the egg and the yellow yolk are combined.

Go ahead and get your toast into the toaster. It will be toasted about the same time your eggs are done.

3. Preheat your frying pan

Get your pan on the stove and turn on the heat to medium to medium-low. Every stove is a little different but you want to make sure that your pan doesn’t get overly hot.

A great way to tell if your pan is hot enough is to hover your hand over the center of the pan. Don’t actually touch the pan, you don’t want to burn yourself. If the pan feels hot it’s probably ready to go.

I choose to use a stainless steel frying pan when I make my scrambled eggs. A lot of people like to use a non-stick this is totally up to you.

4. Add the butter to the pan

OK, so your pan is hot, now we can add in 1/2 tbsp of cold butter. You want to move the butter around the pan so that the entire bottom is coated. The butter will start to bubble a little bit but that is ok. We then know our pan is good and hot.

If you really like the flavor of olive oil go ahead and use it. Try different fats and see what is best for your taste.

5. Cook the eggs in the pan

Slowly pour your eggs into the pan. Leave them until you see the edges starting to cook.

Once they start cooking, mix the eggs around and fold them into themselves. Continue to do this until are no longer runny. This should only take about 2 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and they are ready to go!

You don’t want to overcook your eggs because then they become rubbery and that’s just not delicious. Check out our step-by-step guide about poaching eggs as well.

Butter your toast with room temperature butter, plate those scrambled eggs, and ENJOY!

Frequently Asked Questions About Scrambled Eggs Without Milk

No, you do not need to add milk to scrambled eggs! I actually think they taste better without milk in them. The milk takes away from the eggy flavor if that’s a thing. If you buy good quality eggs you will get the creaminess you think you are getting from adding milk.

Honestly, it’s a personal preference. I prefer using butter because it adds a buttery flavor but, cooking with good healthy oil is great too!
I recommend extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil.
As long as you have fat in the pan to prevent the eggs from sticky and burning you are good to go.
