How to Make Soft-Scrambled Eggs
|Done right, are almost custardlike. Here's how to achieve that creamy texture in three simple steps. By: Adam Hickman|
Step 1: Stir the eggs
Crack eggs into a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Avoid using a whipping motion, which would create an airy foam that would become dry and crusty around the pan edge when cooked.
Step 2: Cook the eggs
Pour eggs into a cold or slightly warm nonstick pan coated with oil. Starting cold prevents eggs from cooking too quickly. Stir almost constantly over medium-low heat for small, creamy curds.
Step 3: Plate the eggs
Remove pan from the heat while eggs are slightly runny–they will continue to cook from residual heat and transform on the plate into perfect soft-scrambled eggs.
