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...

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.

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!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

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!
