Everybody seems to do it differently!

Me I keep it simple- whisk eggs in jug, melt butter in saucepan, stir in eggs, keep stirring until scrambled but still creamy, add salt and pepper, dish up. Yum.

Anyone care to offer their style?

That being said- today I cooked them with pancetta per DHs request and they are pretty damn good.

Much the same as you. Eggs, salt, pepper, butter. Nothing else.

Add a spoonful of Greek yogurt to the mix before cooking and only season once cooked.

I tend to put a splash of milk in, but otherwise similar to you. DP likes a pinch of tarragon in his.

If you ever want the most indulgent scrambled eggs ever, splash buttermilk in. Once did it after I had some left over and I felt like a queen grin

Same as you.

SneakyGremlins Sun 18-Feb-18 15:59:44

I add herbs smile

I hate doing them so microwave them if the children ask. It works, they don’t ask often.

Same as you but no butter.

Tiny drop of cream in If I have any or little splash of full fat milk. I do them in microwave but stop every few seconds and whisk with fork. As they become almost done then I stop every 2 seconds until creamy. I don't add salt & pepper until done though

I sometimes add crème fraîche. Maybe some chopped parsley.

Non stick frying pan and spatula here, so easy to clean the pan afterwards!

No butter, but a splash of milk, or cream if I have it. Voila two minutes max. So yum.

Season when it's cooked.

Not sure, the butler does it. I'll ask him when he has finished mixing my G&T

Amber0685 Sun 18-Feb-18 16:08:04

Eggs, whisk, salt and pepper

In the middle of the week, I whisk the motherload of eggs in a bowl, add a splash of milk and nuke for three minutes and then allow the kids to mash the monstrosity on their own toast. Classy.

DramaAlpaca Sun 18-Feb-18 16:08:54

Same as you OP. I might add a splash of milk if I want them a bit fluffier.

exLtEveDallas Sun 18-Feb-18 16:10:30

Eggs, milk, butter and in the micro. Salt and Pepper to taste. Can't be arsed faffing with the saucepan cleaning.

Chelsea26 Sun 18-Feb-18 16:13:03

Bacon, mushroom, spring onion and spinach chopped up and fried off. Whisk 2 eggs with a Tbsp Greek yoghurt and add to pan, cook till creamy, season and scoff

overnightangel Sun 18-Feb-18 16:14:45

Same as OP but I add half a chicken oxo cube to the mix before frying

FairIsFair Sun 18-Feb-18 16:15:33

I add a splash of 7-up before whisking, if I have it. Makes them fluffier and with a hint of citrus.

AngeloMysterioso Sun 18-Feb-18 16:18:18

Oh yes a non stick pan is essential, otherwise you’re basically forfeiting an egg.

And YY to salt & pepper at the end, if you put the salt in too early it sucks out all the moisture. Learned that from a chef smile

ThisLittleKitty Sun 18-Feb-18 16:19:02

Hate scrambled eggs in the microwave. Yuck. I cook them the Same as you op.

VaguelyAware Sun 18-Feb-18 16:19:53

Butter (generous), salt & pepper OR a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Cook in a non-stick frying pan. Need to be still soft when tipping out; can't stand rubbery eggs.

brownelephant Sun 18-Feb-18 16:22:39

in a cup in the microwave, 3x 20 seconds full whack.

1 egg
little milk (a couple of tablespoons)
dried herbs (chives my favourite)

I use a fork rather than a whisk.
