How to make scrambled eggs

Do you know how to make scrambled eggs? Making scrambled eggs is a basic cooking skill that can be mastered with a little practice. Here's a basic method for making soft and fluffy scrambled eggs:


  • Eggs (typically 2-4 per person, depending on serving size)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Butter or oil, for cooking
  • Optional: milk or cream, herbs, cheese, or other add-ins



  • Crack the eggs into a bowl. If you're adding milk or cream, a good ratio is about 1 tablespoon per egg. This can make your eggs creamier, but it's optional.
  • Whisk the eggs vigorously using a fork or a whisk. The more you whisk, the fluffier your eggs can be. You want to incorporate a bit of air into the mix.
  • Add a pinch of salt and pepper. You can adjust this to your taste.


  • Heat a non-stick skillet over low to medium heat. Add butter (a pat or two) or a small amount of oil. Allow the butter to melt but not brown.
  • Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet.
  • Let the eggs cook without stirring for a few moments until they just start to set on the bottom.
  • Gently stir with a spatula, pushing the eggs from the edges toward the center. Lift and fold the eggs rather than stirring aggressively.
  • Continue this process, letting the eggs set for a moment and then gently stirring, until the eggs are mostly cooked but still slightly runny in places.
  • If you're adding cheese, herbs, or other ingredients, now's the time to do it. Fold them into the eggs.


  • Remove from heat when the eggs are still slightly underdone (they'll continue cooking from the residual heat).
  • Transfer to a plate immediately to stop the cooking process.
  • Season with additional salt and pepper if needed, and serve hot.


  • Cooking eggs on too high of a heat or stirring too aggressively can result in dry or rubbery eggs. It's better to take your time and use gentle heat.
  • Fresh herbs, diced vegetables, cooked meats, or cheeses can be added for variety.
  • Using butter can add to the flavor and prevent sticking, but if you're health-conscious, cooking sprays or a small amount of oil can be used as alternatives.

Now you know how to make scrambled eggs. Enjoy your scrambled eggs with toast, as part of a breakfast spread, or however you prefer!
