Wife turned me on to Ramsay's way of cooking eggs; no salt during cooking, stir almost constantly, low and slow.  My scrambled eggs kick all kinds of ass now.

Milk is only added to help keep the result from being too dry. It's a short order cook trick to save time.

Simple rule for the best scrambled eggs: crack the eggs directly in the pan and whisk with a fork the entire cooking time. Season and enjoy.

Make the god damned things how ever you like them. The only ways you can f*ck them up is if you use rotten eggs (unlikely because you would know as soon as you cracked it open), or if you burn them.

"Do you like eggs?"

She laughed. She looked at me, so I laughed too.

Wolfe scowled. "Confound it, are eggs comical? Do you know how to scramble eggs, Mrs. Valdon?"
"Yes, of course."

"To use Mr. Goodwin's favorite locution, one will get you ten that you don't. I'll scramble eggs for your breakfast and we'll see. Tell me forty minutes before you're ready."

Her eyes widened. "Forty minutes?"

"Yes. I knew you didn't know."

Dammit, man!  I can only  THIS so much.
 
2014-04-05 02:49:16 PM
It all sounds like common sense to me, except for the whisk it until your arms fall off. I like to get it nice and homogeneous, but then let it settle to release all the air bubbles so I don't have an egg puff. I like my omelets smooth and silky not puffy.

I use 3 eggs (one whole egg plus two yolks) & about 1 teaspoon water. Whip gently, add two teaspoons of butter to a non-stick pan and cook on low heat until just slightly wet, season with salt & pepper. These are the creamiest, yummiest scrambled eggs I have ever had.

A little milk (1 Tbl per egg) makes them creamier and less dry (if you cook them on too high of a temp). A little water will make them fluffier.

I've never understood the adding milk bit myself. I already cooked them pretty much the way TFA describes except I like to put ham in mine. I cut the ham up and cook that for a bit in the pan before adding the eggs though. Everything comes out slightly wet like TFA says then I add pepper just before I take them out of the pan and add cheese. Every now and then I'll add onions to the mix as well. Dammit, now I'm hungry.
 
2014-04-05 02:54:12 PM
What's this about adding orange juice? I've never heard of this, and I have to admit to some curiosity.

I use milk for omelets.  (Though heavy cream is preferred.) But while omelets are scrambled eggs, scrambled eggs are not omelets.  So this is a new one on me, too.

/butter in pan, eggs, low-med
//omelets different, but above all get pan hot as f*ck to start
 
2014-04-05 02:55:34 PM
You put eggs in a pan, you scramble them until they look like scrambled eggs.  If they stick to the pan then you are using too much heat.  For better results, butter the pan and make diced potatoes before making the eggs.

It's so simple that even I managed to figure it out.

Anyone handy with pots and pans knows every tip huffpo provided there is correct.
For those who feel their otherwise prepared scrambled eggs are already good enough; you're right. They're good enough for you.

I never liked scrambled eggs by themselves until I tried the Gordon Ramsay method.  I will never go back.

My mom used to make eggs by adding too much milk, covering in saran wrap, and microwaving until it turned into a yellow foam with grey spots.

Okay, I had to click the link after this comment.  Because clearly I might have been missing some Great Secrets.

HuffPo links make my computer barf.  Actually, most FARK links make my computer barf.  So you understand, clicking the link is actually an undertaking of great peril, and not something that I choose to do lightly.

Synopsis of the article:  Don't burn 'em, don't use shiatty eggs, don't ignore them, don't add weird crap to them.

I can't wait for the article on 7 Things You Never Knew About Pouring a Glass Of Water.  (Do you know which end is up?  You might be surprised!)

I found that on youtube a couple months ago, and while I thought they looked too creamy or undercooked in the video, I was very happily wrong.  You can get them fully cooked but still creamy this way.
 
2014-04-05 03:04:26 PM
I will continue adding heavy cream to my eggs.

I guess if you like your eggs "creamy", which is almost actually runny.

I like cook mine until they're not creamy and then I let them cook and minute for good measure.

Also, mixing in chopped up bits of ham is awesome.
