The Best Scrambled Eggs

My husband recently stumbled into a corner of the internet that I didn’t know existed… fancy scrambled eggs (I don’t know why I’m surprised). Gordon Ramsey, Anthony Bourdain, and Ina Garten each have their own “best scrambled eggs” recipes outlined online. Everyone seems to have an opinion on this popular breakfast dish. After diving into his research, Jason was able to identify the most logical tips and tricks for cooking scrambled eggs perfectly. It was a bigger discussion in our household than I care to admit… but I am so happy with our results! #foodnerds

In the past I have not typically wanted or craved scrambled eggs. They just didn’t seem appetizing to me. Since finding this new way of preparing them though, I am fanatical. I make these for myself multiple times per week and have even started replacing my lunch with scrambled eggs. It’s weird but I’m okay with it.

The big trick for this recipe is to whisk your eggs over super low heat for 5-7 minutes. The more you whisk, the tastier the eggs… I’m not joking. Check out the video above (or below) and enjoy your new favorite breakfast. Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
