The Lady's Perfect Scrambled Eggs ( Paula Deen )

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is from Paula Deen's The Lady and Sons restaurant in Savannah, Georgia. My son prompted me on a quest for tender, perfect scrambled eggs, and this is the best I've found. I like my scrambled eggs firmly cooked, but these still stay tender. They are perfect!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium sized bowl, beat eggs, sour cream, water, and salt and pepper until fluffy.
  2. Using a nonstick frying pan, melt butter and cook eggs over low heat, stirring occasionally, until just set.
  3. Stir in the cheese just before serving.
  4. Cook until you reach desired consistency.

Delicious, fluffy, slightly creamy scrambled eggs. I used greek yogurt, which is healthier than sour cream but still has the same consistency and tanginess. This is how I will make scrambled eggs from now on!
