How to Make the Perfectly Soft and Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

You don't need any fancy cooking skills to make the perfect scrambled eggs. Learn how with just a few simple ingredients.

Scrambled eggs are a staple breakfast food in many households. They are a quick, easy and inexpensive meal you can eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Scrambled eggs are also highly versatile and can be served with toast, on a bagel, or as part of an extravagant brunch platter.

The perfect scrambled egg is fluffy and soft with just the right amount of gooeyness. It is neither too dry nor too wet but just the ideal consistency for your toast or bagel without dropping off.

The trick to making the perfect scrambled egg is not over to cook them, so they don’t turn into rubber eggs. I also like adding something green to give them more visual interest.

In this recipe, I used a dash of milk and cream only because I happened to have both in the fridge, but you could use either or both.

Adding cream or some grated cheese is a good option if you need to increase the energy and protein in your scrambled eggs. Read more about food fortification tips here

Let’s do this, scrambled eggs, here we come!


Scrambled Eggs

Serves 1 (every 2 eggs used) | Prep Time 5 mins | Cook Time 5 mins



2 Eggs (per person)

Milk, a good dash

Cream (optional), but add a good dash

Butter (for melting in the pan, also adds to the richness)

Something green e.g., spring onions or finely chopped spinach (optional, but adds some color and visual lift)

Toast or Bagel (optional)

Salt and Pepper to taste


Frypan (non-stick makes it easier for clean up)

Mixing bowl


Melting butter in a non-stick frying pan

Step 1: Add butter to your saucepan and pop it on medium to high heat. Melt the butter.

Step 2. Add eggs, a dash of milk/cream (or both) in the mixing bowl, and some cracked pepper.

Step 3. Give the eggs a rough whisk to blend them. You should still see some difference in colour from the white of the milk to the cream.

Step 4. Add egg mixture to the frypan.

Step 5. When you notice the bottom of the eggs starting to cook, gently begin to fold the eggs.

Step 6. Keep folding the eggs as they cook, making sure that the whites are getting cooked through.

Step 7. As the eggs form more, it's time to add your green ingredient (optional). Keep folding the eggs.The best way to tell when scrambled eggs are cooked is by looking at the texture.

Step 8. When the eggs have a nice, smooth texture, and a little glistening, they are done and ready to serve.

Step 9. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve on some toast or a bagel or enjoy on their own with.
