The method for scrambled eggs described here is a combination of the Gordon Ramsay method and the Alton Brown method. This combination takes the best of both and makes it approachable to the home cook.

Do you add milk for scrambled eggs?

You DO NOT have to add milk to scrambled eggs. We have found that the best fluffy scrambled eggs are made without milk, and instead use butter.

Are scrambled eggs good for you?

Eggs are packed with high-quality protein, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats. They also contain all nine essential amino acids that the body needs and can not produce on its own. Meaning in a well-balanced diet eggs can be among some of the healthiest food you can eat.

Should I make scrambled eggs in a skillet or in a saucepan?

We have found that a small saucepan is better for making scrambled eggs than a skillet. The shape of the saucepan traps the heat differently and is able to cook our eggs from the side and slightly from the top as well as from the main heat source on the bottom, providing a better cooked fluffier scramble. We also found that nonstick saucepans work better.
