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...

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!

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

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
