    Scrambled eggs.. How do you like 'em?

    Ok CBadRider, I await your input on this.

    After experimenting for many moons with various ways to cook scrambled eggs, I seem to have come across a recipe that makes them really good. Instead of adding milk or cream, add a tablespoonful of water per egg. (two tbls. of water for two eggs.) Add a pinch of Kosher salt, and a good sprinkling of onion powder. Whisk the eggs well, and pour into a hot, non-stick pan that has been prepped with butter, or cooking spray (if you must, you must)

    Then, the usual applies: With a spatula, move the cooked egg toward the center. The uncooked portion moves out when you do this. Keep repeating, then toss the eggs around
    until done, but be careful not to overcook.

    Makes for pretty tasty scrambled eggs.

    Share your methods for cooking scrambled eggs.

    Try a little bit of orange juice, and cinnimon.
    Or my favorite;
    Dice a potato, small sweet pepper(red, yellow, orange, and\or green) and a small onion, and ground sausage(hot or sweet).
    saute in butter or cooking spray util the sausage is cooked, and the veggies are soft-ish.
    Scramble eggs(2-3) in a bowl.
    Lower heat to med-low.
    Add eggs to pan
    Let cook until the bottom is firm, and starts to brown.
    Try turn turn the whole thing over, if you break it up that's ok too.
    Cook utill eggs are firm, and bottom is jusst slightly brown.
    Sprinkle grated cheddar chees on top, cover so cheese melts.
    Serve with tabasco(of course).
    Go for a long hard ride to work off the 10 thousand calories you just ate.

    I do something similar sometimes with diced ham instead of sausage.

    I only ever add cheese, crumbled sausage, or black pepper to my eggs. Then they get cooked until they're fairly dry.

    scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheese go well in grits.

    Break eggs into bowl. Add a dash of milk, some black pepper and then sprinkle in some tarragon and then whisk briskly.

    Scramble until firm and moist, but not wet. Use spatula to move eggs about taking care not to be too vigorous, as they need to have larger pieces, not tiny little bits.

    Plate and salt and pepper to taste then top lightly with grated cheese.

    creamy - I don't add water or milk.

    Little butter in a non stick pan ---- shoot those scrambled eggs into the pan and you either have option - I do a fast flip and flop - preferring an undercooked egg anyway.

    However here is how I do the following recipie-ish sometimes sans herbs, cream or oil - just using a bit of butter - the technique is using a non-stick pan and to keep on the eggs - you don't let them set up - keep flipping. It's a lovely way to serve eggs - they are soft and creamy - and yes cooked.

    A recipe...

    _____

    The Best Scrambled Eggs

    Yield 2 servings

    Time 40 minutes (MORE LIKE 25-30 MINUTES, tude)
    Ingredients

    4 or 5 eggs
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons cream
    A small handful of mixed herbs
    2 tablespoons butter or extra virgin olive oil

    Method

    1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them, just until the yolks and whites are combined. Season with salt and pepper and beat in the cream.
    2. Put a medium skillet, preferably non-stick, over medium heat for about 1 minute. Add the butter or oil and swirl it around the pan. After the butter melts, but before it foams, turn the heat to low.
    3. Add the eggs to the skillet and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. At first nothing will happen; after 10 minutes or so, the eggs will begin to form curds. Do not lose patience: Keep stirring, breaking up the curds as they form, until the mixture is a mass of soft curds. This will take 30 minutes or more. Serve immediately.

    I take my eggs over medium w/ coarsely cracked black pepper and some green habanero hot sauce. Preferably over hash browns & bacon, so I can soak them in the yummy, runny yolk.

    Mix in leftover cooked spaghetti noodles with the eggs, onion, cheese, etc. Sounds weird but I saw it on one of the food channel shows (Triple D?). Turns out pretty good actually.

    I will have to try some of these... I mostly do the splash of milk thing. I add some sriracha sauce onto the plate for dipping. The skillet thing with potatos, peppers, onions, and cheese is also good.

    I use alittle milk as well... I like to add spinach (fresh or frozen) and a touch of cheddar cheese to make it creamier. I might use alittle ketchup when I eat them but I generally add nothing else other than maybe parsley or cilantro.

    For a fun mix of things, I like to add bean sprouts, peas, fine chopped green pepper and maybe some ham... make egg foo young... sauce is alittle soy, sesame oil and corn starch

    Oh yea!!!! I just love grits. All that is good in em, but I can eat just the grits.


    I do the little bit of milk thing, salt, pepper, and sometimes some cheese.
    Keep them in a shape that will just cover some toast, put some cheese to melt on the top of the eggs as they finish then put em on a piece of toast and cover em with another.

    My wife likes that with a bit of mustard. Sausage or bacon go good on it too.

    After this thread I might know what we're havin for dinner there at the Mag outpost.

    I hate scrambled eggs unless they are part of an omelet. If I'm going to eat eggs, it is 2 egg whites fried in a small amount of butter with cracked pepper.
