Everyone should learn how to scramble eggs :P

Ingredients Nutrition

  1. Break the eggs into a medium mixing bowl, add a little salt and pepper, and beat with a fork until just blended.
  2. Beat in the water, if using.
  3. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat.
  4. Melt the butter in the skillet, swirling the pan to coat evenly.

Made for my son and I this morning and we both enjoyed the eggs. I added the water and only pepper. They were quick and easy to make.

I've been making scrambled eggs like this for 45 years since my dear departed dad gave me my first lesson in making them on my 7th birthday (my birthday breakfast) - and oh occassionally for a little bit of decandance add a tablespoon of thick/double cream instead of water and only ever use butter. Thank you to Bergy for bringing this recipe to my attention and swirlycinnacakes for posting a great memory recipe.
