Scrambled eggs are inexpensive which makes them even better in my opinion (smile).
The eggs are cooked in unsalted butter or olive oil in a skillet on top of the stove… over low heat.
“Scramble” the eggs by lightly folding with a spatula until preferred doneness. Too much stirring or folding will form crumbled eggs.
Use LOW HEAT to avoid over cooking which causes a thick and dry texture. Never leave the stove while scrambling eggs because they cook VERY quickly.
How To Read & Follow A Recipe: Tips for Beginners
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires properly reading a recipe’s ingredients, and instructions. Plus, knowing how to prep ingredients and what equipment to use.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe so you understand it and to make sure you have each ingredient.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitute.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watching a video tutorial is a great way to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking. Helps you make sure you have each ingredient and avoid accurately following instructions.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions and highlight cooking times. Make note of ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions and creative twists. The notes will be very helpful the next time you make this recipe.
