Yesterday I read this article about how a lot of women – single and married – don’t know how to make a simple scrambled egg. That is a total disaster to me. Eggs are one of the easiest things to make as soon as you get a hold of it.
What you need for about 3 people:
- 5 normal size eggs
- Preferably milk – this is only if you’re on a saving plan or if you want to have a creamier and softer result.
- Preferably meat and vegetables
– I love smoked salmon or small pieces of cooked ham
– Of vegetables I would use red pepper, green onion and maybe spinach, but you can use whatever you want.
- Spices – salt and pepper, maybe paprika (adding paprika makes the egg look dirty, so if you want it to have that egg white/yellow color, don’t add paprika).
You start by heating up a pan with a bit of fat – I would use a nonstick oil spray, but you can use butter as well – just be careful so it won’t burn. Also DO NOT use olive oil as it doesn’t go well with high temperatures on a pan.
While heating the pan get a bowl ready and crack the eggs into the bowl – NOT the pan. Cracking them on the pan will make them fry rather than cook. Whisk the egg together in the bowl and add your spices – only add salt if you’re not adding meat, as it will add plenty of salt. When whisking the spices into the bowl – add sliced meat and vegetables. I prefer small pieces, so it will be mouth fit rather than having to cut out the pieces on the plate.
When you’ve mixed all ingredients, pour the mixture onto the pan and let it heat for just a little while. Start by scrambling the eggs, but stop as soon as it starts taking form. Now you need to fold it rather than scrambling, as it keeps the egg fluffy and delicious.
For me it was along with bread with cheese and grapes (strange mix, but its actually quite good, if you don’t want bacon or sausage).
