Scrambled eggs can be manipulated in one too many ways. It kind of grosses me out. While we were in Bend, OR a couple weeks ago, the hotel we stayed at had breakfast. Mind you, their breakfast was actually really good and filled with multiple options to choose from. Apart from the usual mass produced plastic tasting scrambled eggs, I thoroughly enjoyed everything else. I find anytime you travel, the scrambled eggs are a "must RUN" dish. Don't touch, don't eat, don't even try! They always let you down.
Isn't it crazy how scrambling eggs can bring out the best and the worst of an egg? I've found that it is almost too easy to make them different each time. My husband is the type who likes to constantly stir the egg and mash it into the smallest pieces known to man. He loves to stir those puppies and stir and stir. I found that over stirring will keep Cooper from touching the egg. :) I will give my husband the benefit of the doubt and say, I do make eggs every day for Cooper, so he's just used to my chunky, cheesy, ooey goodness of an egg. ;)
I will give all the credit to my mama who taught me many tips and tricks in the kitchen. She is a fabulous cook and always had the best eggs growing up and I've now brought them to my abode. The key to our scrambled eggs is not, I repeat, NOT to over stir.
- 2-3 tbsp butter
- 8-10 eggs (serves 5-6 people)
- 3 tbsp cream cheese
- 1- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
- Salt & pepper to taste
- (Patience) :)
In a medium size skillet greased with 2-3 tbsp butter, crack your eggs over med-low heat. Let them sit until they look like this. (break the yoke)
Using a spatula light scrap the bottom of the pan to "stir" them. Leave in large chunks.
Serve with toast and sausage or in a breakfast sandwich.
I found great pleasure when the little gal I nannied for said she HATED eggs but once she took a bite of mine she proudly stood and said "these are the best eggs in the WHOOOOLLLLEEE world." I was very honored that a 5 year old would be so complimentary towards my eggs that were previously looked down upon. She enjoyed them so much she asked for my scrambled eggs for her birthday breakfast. Needless to say, her mom "took a lesson" on scrambling eggs. :)
