Scrambled Eggs Are The Perfect Breakfast Food!
Scrambled eggs are a tasty breakfast food that goes great with virtually any other breakfast food item! If you don’t know how to make scrambled eggs, this easy scrambled eggs recipe will make it simple for you to learn.
Eggs are packed with protein and are much healthier than many other breakfast options. They go great with simple breakfasts like eggs and toast or with more elaborate breakfasts like pancake, bacon, eggs fruit and more!
Once you learn how to make scrambled eggs, you will be amazed how versatile they are for any breakfast, but don’t think they are just for breakfast! Just like some other breakfast foods, you can make scrambled eggs as part of a quick lunch or dinner meal as well.
How To Make Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled eggs are easy to make, which is probably one of the reasons they are so popular as a breakfast food. To make them, you start with the eggs and other ingredients in a bowl and whisk it until it is lightly blended.
You will need to use grease to prevent the eggs from sticking to the pan. You can use butter, margarine or bacon grease, but I prefer bacon grease because it gives the eggs a more delicious flavor. Butter should be fine, but if you cook the eggs too hot, the butter could burn. Margarine and cooking oil are stable oils that won’t burn or change the flavor of the eggs.
This scrambled eggs recipe calls for 8 eggs because it makes 4 typical servings, but you can easily make a smaller batch. If I’m cooking for one, I will often use just 2 eggs and mix the eggs and other ingredients in a measuring cup to make it even easier to pour. We use specific measurements in our easy scrambled eggs recipe below, but you can feel free to add the salt and pepper without measuring if you like.
To cook the eggs, heat a skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is warm, add the butter, margarine or bacon grease and then pour the scrambled egg mixture into the pan.
After a minute or so, you will notice the eggs turning a lighter color in the pan as they cook. At first they will turn lighter in the bottom and still look runny on top. As soon as you see them starting to cook, stir and keep stirring until they are done, about 4 minutes.
This scrambled eggs recipe is difficult to mess up, so don’t be afraid to try it. The main thing is not to let the egg mixture sit too long without stirring or the eggs might burn. You can stir a little and then let the eggs cook a little and it will be fine.
Once you notice the eggs starting to clump into firmer but still fluffy pieces, and no longer looking runny, they are done. If you prefer them a little more cooked, you can let them cook a little longer. If they start browning on the edges, they are definitely done and you should take them out of the pan.

If you make scrambled eggs along with other breakfast items, you might want to save the eggs for last in the cooking order so they’re hot and fresh when you serve them. If you cook the eggs too soon and then you’re waiting on the pancakes or oatmeal to finish cooking the eggs will get cold.

- Yield: 4 servings
1 tsp. salt

To test eggs for freshness: Place an egg in a glass of cold water; if it floats, do not use it.
Using bacon grease in this easy scrambled eggs recipe will give your scrambled eggs a richer, more delicous flavor! I highly recommend it!
In place of butter, margarine or bacon grease, you can also use 1 Tbsp. cooking oil. I would not use olive oil as the flavor or the olive oil will impact the flavor of the eggs.
