Cook With Style Tuesday - Light & Fluffy Scrambled Eggs Every Time

Q. How do I make scrambled eggs that are light and fluffy?


A. Listen to Wham! songs while cooking them! Oh sorry, that will make you light and fluffy, not the eggs.

As for the eggs, I follow my mother’s advice. She, like most, recognizes that runny scrambled eggs lack style. She kindly relayed this fail-safe approach to me and it works like a charm!

When making the egg batter, use 1 tbsp of milk for every egg. Beat with a fork and lightly season with salt and pepper. I also like to stir in a few chopped chives.

Now here is where you’ll have to muster up one of the biggest attributes of cooking style and that is patience.

When cooking the eggs, think of the song "Low" by Flo Rida. You're going to want to set the heat...nice and low. Cook them over medium-low heat and let them slowly come together. Yes it takes longer than your usual high-heat-cook-em-fast approach but your patience will pay off and you’ll end up with light and fluffy eggs every time!
