Top Tips For Loaded Scrambled Eggs
- A silicone or heat-proof spatula is the ideal tool for this job. A wooden spoon will work in a pinch, but it’s just not as good at getting into the seam where the sides of the pan meet the bottom. Don’t use a metal spatula, which could scrape and scratch the nonstick coating.
- Cook low and slow! Preheat the pan over medium heat, but don’t get too crazy with the flame when it comes time to actually cook the eggs. Scrambled eggs should be cooked slowly, over medium-low heat.
- For large, creamy curds, use a sweeping motion with the spatula, covering as much surface area as possible as you cook the eggs. For a smaller, finer curd, use small, rapid circles.
Use a non stick skillet. This is a job for your trusty nonstick skillet. Cast-iron pans are great, but unless they’re really well-seasoned, the eggs will stick to the bottom and sides. That means fewer eggs for you, and more scrubbing and scraping when it comes time for cleanup.
