Scrambled eggs are the classic breakfast food. Everybody loves them, everyone knows them, and everyone wants them.

Not only are eggs extremely simple to make and cheap to buy, but they are a nutrition powerhouse – especially for those of us who do not eat meat.

Most people think the best way to make scrambled eggs includes cracking the eggs into a bowl, adding milk or water, whisking the eggs in the bowl, and then pouring the mix into a hot pan. Well, not to crack anyone’s shell (pun intended) but that way is wrong.

The right way to make scrambled eggs is even more simple than that and ends with a fluffy and delicious final product.

#SpoonTip: Always use farm fresh eggs when available.
