Scrambled eggs can seem like a simple and easy-to-make dish. However, if your eggs turn out flat and dense, you can make them even better; lighter and fluffier and tastier with a few simple tricks.
You can choose one of several ingredients in your kitchen to replicate the effects of restaurant scrambled eggs.
A little carbonated water can make your eggs fluffy and airy like a cloud. Just add a tablespoon of natural mineral water for every two eggs. According to The Kitchn, the effect of carbonated water on eggs is because the bubbles in the water create pockets of trapped air that expand when heated.
Milk or cream
Some chefs choose to add dairy products like milk or heavy cream to scrambled eggs to make them creamier, moist, and fluffy.
Tips for better cooking scrambled eggs
1. Use fresh eggs
While hard-boiled eggs are best when they are not too fresh, for better tasting and textured scrambled eggs, use the freshest eggs.
2. Beat well
The more beaten the eggs are, the more air enters and thus they will be fluffier and lighter.
3. Use medium to low heat
Cooking the eggs over high heat will dry out the eggs and may leave them with a tougher texture; Instead, using a medium-low to low heat will prevent the eggs from overcooking and becoming soft.
The healthiest way to cook eggs is with short cooking methods, if you opt for fried or scrambled eggs using healthy oils in little quantity. However, from time to time you may want to do your eggs with more moisture and flavor using butter.
5. Don’t forget to use a non-stick pan
Using a nonstick skillet is very important to give the eggs a good stir, prevent sticking, and get the best results.
6. Wait and stir
How you scramble the eggs can make a difference. Once poured into the skillet, let the eggs rest for a second and then stir the eggs with a spatula until they are cooked.
7. Remove the eggs from the heat in time
Eggs continue to cook with residual heat from the pan even after you turn off the heat. Remove from heat once the eggs are set, but don’t wait too long, they should still look wet, though not runny.
