Do you really need a recipe for scrambled eggs? You do if you want eggs that are consistently fluffy and moist! This recipe from Milk Street uses olive oil, which gives them a velvety texture and richer flavor. You're going to love it.
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 8 large eggs
- Kosher salt and ground black pepper
In a 12-inch nonstick or seasoned carbon-steel skillet over medium heat, heat the oil until just beginning to smoke, about 3 minutes. While the oil heats, in a bowl use a fork to whisk the eggs and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt until blended and foamy on top. Pour the eggs into the center of the pan.
Using a rubber spatula, continuously stir the eggs, pushing them toward the middle as they begin to set at the edges and folding the cooked egg over on itself. Cook until the eggs are just set, 60 to 90 seconds. The curds should be shiny, wet and soft, but not translucent or runny. Immediately transfer to warmed plates and season with salt and pepper.
Don’t warm your plates too much. It sounds minor, but hot plates will continue to cook the eggs, making them tough and dry. Cold plates will cool the eggs too fast. The plates should be warm to the touch, but not so hot that you can’t comfortably hold them.
