I love eggs. Scrambled, hard boiled, over easy… doesn’t matter. We had breakfast for dinner the other night (one of my favorites), complete with biscuits, bacon, and scrambled eggs.
[Allow me to take a minute here and explain that YES that is a canned refrigerated biscuit you see in the photo… although I would have gladly made buttermilk biscuits from scratch, one of JW’s favorite things in the world is canned biscuits. So… every so often I oblige.]
Scrambled eggs are one of those things that should be easy that isn’t necessarily. Up until recently, I was always in the “low, slow heat, stirring frequently” camp. But I came across an article not too long ago that changed my thinking. They said no, in fact you should scramble eggs over a hotter temperature – medium to medium-high – and don’t stir too much, just every so often. I tried it and wow! SO much better! It’s not that the others were bad, per se, it’s just that the consistency was different. This way you actually end up with fluffy chunks of egg you can stab with a fork, instead of having to scoop up all the little egg bits.
Stabbable fluffy chunks are definitely preferable to scoopable little bits.
Maybe everyone else knew this but me. Maybe I’m slow to get on this wagon (this is very likely true). Either way, it sure has made a difference in breakfast time around here, regardless of whether that happens to be 7:00 AM or 7:00 PM.
On a different note, I have a new camera! It came in the mail yesterday… SO EXCITED!! I can’t wait to start using it. I just have to figure it out first… 😉
