HOW TO: Make Fluffy Scrambled Eggs #Sponsored

Have you ever seen Runaway Bride? I hadn't until last month's Food'N'Flix event; you can read my post here. But the reason for my question is that watching that movie in March spawned the breakfast conversation about how my boys like their eggs.

I learned that Jake likes his eggs fluffy and scrambled...or poached. We've been married for eighteen years and I never would have said that he likes scrambled eggs. Well, it turns out he didn't like my scrambled eggs because they weren't fluffy. That sounded like a challenge to me.

So, I've researched and tested...and I have finally figured out how to make perfect, fluffy scrambled eggs. I thought I'd share that with you, in case you are as scrambled egg-challenged as I was!


And it just so happened that I received eggs from Eggland's Best* in advance of taking part in the 2018 BrunchWeek event. Talk about serendipitous! So, I tested different methods and came up with one that worked for me. First, a bit about Eggland's though...


Eggland’s Best are produced by hens fed an all-vegetarian diet and their feed is free of added hormones, antibiotics, steroids, animal by-products, and recycled or processed foods. They are produced locally throughout the United States - I see three producers in my state - and are typically delivered to stores within 72 hours of laying. If you want to learn more about the company, check out their sustainability, their certifications, and their awards.

Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

Ingredients serves 4
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 T butter
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • variations: herbs, cheese, etc.
  • also needed: whisk or hand mixer (yes, really!), enameled skillet


Procedure or Technique
Crack your eggs into medium mixing bowl. Whisk or whip until the eggs and yolks are fully combined into a pale, yellow mixture. The more air you get into the eggs, the more light and tender they will be. Whisk in some salt and pepper.

Melt the butter in your pan until the butter is foamy, but not browning. Keep the heat low as it's key to making the eggs custard-like and soft!

Pour the beaten eggs into the pan and let them sit for 30 seconds or so. Use a spatula to move the eggs from one side of the pan to the other to spread the uncooked eggs over the pan surface.

Stop when the eggs seem mostly set. This should only take a minute or two. Any longer and they'll go from fluffy to rubbery in the blink of an eye! 


That's it. No real secret. Just a few techniques that make all the difference: whipped eggs, real butter, and low heat.


You'll see these fluffy scrambled eggs in one of my #BrunchWeek recipes: Farmhouse Cheddar 'N' Egg Laminated Biscuit Sandwiches. Check back during the online event!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
