I am learning how to make perfect scrambled eggs

I have read so many different versions of making scrambled eggs. Yet, I never really bother to find the perfect way to make scrambled eggs. So, I googled and found this site which seems to have the most detailed method of making scrambled eggs.

scrambled eggs, sausage and beef

I followed the instructions exactly.

I used :

RECIPE FOR SCRAMBLED EGGS

3 eggs
3 tablespoon of full cream UHT milk
dash of salt
dash of pepper
dash of Maggi seasoning (the long neck, yellow cap bottle)
a touch of butter to oil my non-stick pan

____________________________

I whisk the egg with a metal egg whisk. Lots of arm muscles involve because I am supposed to get as much air into the eggs as possible.

Next, I added in the milk, salt, pepper and seasoning.

Heat pan, put in butter, once melt, pour in egg.

Then, I use the ‘Martha Stewart way’.

scrambled eggs and sausage

After that, I get four sons to taste and get their reviews. One son dislike the butter flavour. One son said the egg smells a bit like pancake (due to the butter again). Two sons just ate and didn’t have any bad reviews.

So, passed. I am now ready to make scrambled eggs for 250 people, using 300 eggs. We (a group of ladies and I) are serving the scrambled eggs with baked beans, grilled chipolata sausages and bread. So help us God. Hahaha.

Seen in the photo above are streaky beef and herb and garlic sausage (more about that later).

Anyone else have better recipe for making scrambled eggs? It has to be quick recipe and not the type where one has to constantly stir the eggs for 30 minutes because I think I can manage only 10 eggs at a time.

    There’s a video of Gordon Ramsay making his so-called “perfect scrambled eggs” on YouTube.

    Personally, I use eggs (DUH), milk (doesn’t matter if it’s full or low fat), salt and pepper. Tried it with butter a few times, but I didn’t like it that much. Aside from those ingredients everything else is pretty much up to personal preference.

    You might want to try this unique way of making scrambled eggs. Fast, easy and no mess — using ziploc bags. Check my site for details: http://chowtimes.com/2007/03/16/ziploc-omelette/

    try to use the Lea & Perrins(LP) Worcestershire Sauce. Taste better. Hainanese like to use it one. Smell better also but not too much or it will be too strong liau.

    sheryl – Hahha, I lazy to copy and paste. It is on the link I gave but actually just use spatula and push the eggs at the sides to the middle (side cook faster mah) and then, let the middle runny part of the eggs flow out. We had been doing it for donkey years when frying eggs but Martha Stewart got the name pulak.

    Erina – My Hakka husband hates the smell of LP sauce so I normally scared of using it lor. Sometimes, he langsung boycott dishes with LP sauce. *roll eyes* Maybe I should cut down on the butter, tks.

    Suane -That’s an interesting way to make eggs but not this time, not with 300 eggs. LOL.

    synical – Let me go Google it up and see. tks

    my cousin sis taught me this super easy way of making scrambled eggs a long time ago.

    whisk the eggs with milk, salt and pepper and put the whole thing into the microwave oven. check on it as it’ll cook pretty fast. take out to stir and put it back in again until all cooked.

    that’s what i do since i only have a microwave in my apartment and no gas stove. hope this helps 🙂

    by the way that garlic sausage looks really good. have been looking for this type of gourmet sausages but the ones in cold storage are so expensive!

    […] prefect scrambled eggs for the third time today. Well, what to do….I do not normally prepare scrambled eggs because I hate it. I prefer my traditional fried eggs which is like sunny side-up, runny and yet, […]

    I learnt my method from Bill Granger, popular chef here in Sydney with 3 restaurants. He uses cream which gives it a fluffier texture. Not sure if you can get good quality cream in Msia and price.

    i think you should omit the maggi seasoning, and if you like you can add a little dried thyme (not ground) instead. it goes really well with the eggs and the side dishes, too. but the herb is optional. a low heat is also mandatory… yeah, i know it sounds like a bad idea with 10 eggs at a time but you would not need to stir the eggs continuously, but fold it from the bottom up every 10 seconds or so. another tip, before the eggs are fully cooked (still glossy), turn off the flame. the heat from the eggs will cook by themselves so you get perfect scrambled eggs, not dried crumbly onesw! i hope these tips work for you… i have been the scrambled eggs chief for the family since i was a kid:-P

    Perhaps you can try this quick and easy recipe. Sauté diced shallots in olive oil, then add diced tomatoes. Continue stirring before adding lightly salted beaten eggs to make scrambled eggs. Sprinkle with a pinch of black pepper powder before seving. Serve it on its own or with some bread. Makes a healthy breakfast or snack.

    My mum taught me how to make it when I was in school. Had never liked my scrambled eggs any other way since I tasted it.

    i dont know if this would be a good idea since u’re serving hundreds of ppl, but try to put cheese (cheddar or mozarella) instead of butter. i like it a lottttt 🙂

    i usually just put egg, enough milk, salt, pepper, and that’s it. plain old simple things. Beat it hard, of course.

    if you want some fresh taste in it, sprinkle some diced spring onion on it. adds the kick to it.

    save all the cows by ditching the butter and cheese 🙂 (opps, still got milk hor)
