Non stick pan? no you morons cast iron with bacon grease! they don't know how to cook eggs
 
2018-01-22 11:36:21 AM  
Only add milk to stretch them out. You know because being poor.
 
2018-01-22 11:36:51 AM  
Cast iron.
Low temp.
Mix in a little bit of real maple syrup.

Mix in some water and then whisk them until they are fully aerated.  No need for milk.

Wow. The article is all for the American Omelet and poo poos all over the French omelet. They both have their place for breakfast.

Sunny side up, with extremely runny yolks. Crispy bacon. Well done hashbrowns. Black coffee. Please.

I don't care either way, as long as my scambled eggs are smothered in ketchup.

Only use some butter in the pan, that's how Gordon Ramsey does it, and that's how I do it. Are you saying you're better than Gordon Ramsey?!

Scramble eggs, mostly yes.  Omelets, mostly no.

His scrambled egg technique is not good, so yes.  Also cast iron is more overrated than sous vide.

2018-01-22 12:05:45 PM  
well, i now know who gives the WORST advice on food. milk with eggs is always undeniably better. its not even debatable. milk is also great for making any cheese additions much creamier. i dont care for velveeta-style cheeses in my eggs. they are bland and flavorless. i like sharp cheddar or colby jack, shredded. the milk make them creamy like velveeta but now with actual cheese flavor.

and olive oil with eggs is way better than butter too. (the movie Big Night taught me this.) i sometimes just use the grease from a single sausage patty or olive oil. butter just doesnt taste right to me on eggs. thats why i dont order them in diners or restaurants. they all use butter, and way too much of it.

You are not my supervisor!

Seriously, tho... I add a little milk or half & half, along with salt & pepper, before scrambling and my eggs turn out just the way I like them. So blow me.
 
2018-01-22 12:41:00 PM  
Start at a high temp, the steam created makes a fluffier egg. When they are close to being done, turn the heat down for more control and to avoid overcooking.
 
2018-01-22 12:41:52 PM  
When I make scrambled eggs they taste better with milk. I reject the reality postulated by this article and replace it with my own.

Dietary cholesterol is pretty irrelevant to serum cholesterol levels.  You make for more than you eat, the trick is to convince your body not to make so much.

The day that I swapped out milk for butter in making scrambled eggs was such a mind-blowing experience that I haven't made them any other way since.

/Also lowered the temperature way, way down from how I previously cooked them

We will start with the perfect omelette which is made with two eggs not three. Amateurs often add milk for density; this is a mistake.

Screw that crazy putz.  I watched his scrambled egg video, what a narcissist wackjob.  I'm a butter guy, but I'm not playing that game of remove from heat, back to heat, remove from heat, back to heat........  Michael Symon said it well one day, eggs can be like steak, a little rare, or well done, cook to preference.  Butter in, pan hot, stir the moment the eggs hit the pan, remove from heat when done.  I use a bamboo spatula.  It isn't flat enough for much else.

Scrambling in the pan is a bad idea.  My older bro isn't allowed to cook scrambled eggs, because he did that.  Eggs don't scramble well when they're already cooking.

Two eggs if I want to still be hungry later.  I agree milk isn't the answer.
 
2018-01-22 01:13:29 PM  
Whip up the whites separately then mix in the yolks.

Maybe a 1/4 cup milk, two eggs, a little S&P, fork-whipped in a bowl. Pat of butter in a non-stick pan on low til melted. Pour in eggs, raise to medium, add shredded cheese when whites start to opaque and stir when the cheese has melted. Plate when liquid is almost gone.

No idea what I'm doing but it turns out alright.

My husband scrambles his in the pan, and I want to strangle him! I just make mine and dogs in a separate pan, and let him have his half rubbery eggs all to himself.

They're talking about scrambled eggs, not omelets.

Also, add seltzer to your scrambled eggs to make them fluffier. And use chopsticks to whip 'em. Works like a charm.
 
2018-01-22 03:18:34 PM  
My preferred scrambled egg 'recipe':

One whole egg, two egg yolks, splash of water, pat of butter melted in pan on low heat (I use a stainless Calphalon pan), add eggs, use fork to push around the pan, cook until barely set (I like mine creamy). Enjoy.
 
2018-01-22 03:45:36 PM  
FTSFA---What the milk really does is dilute the flavor of the eggs, making them rubbery, colorless

BULLshiat. And as for 'colorless'? Who cares? The writer of this stupid article is unaware of the difference between 'a little milk/cream' and a quart. Fu*king dumbass.

The method stated in TFA of pulling the curd towards the middle is the technique for making a proper american style omelet. For French omelets, the curds are continuously whipped with a fork during cooking until they are about to set.

The american omelet is stronger which holds items better when folded. The French omelet is more delicate and goes well with herbs mixed with the eggs and maybe a cheese when folded.
 
2018-01-22 03:59:02 PM  
Tastes are different. I like large, fluffy curds more than a custardy texture. You might have a different preference. Neither of us is wrong if we know what we want, and we know how to make it.

2018-01-22 06:00:19 PM  
My trick is to first work two eggs (or three, whatevs) through a mesh strainer held about two feet above the bowl with a little mild poured in. By the time you've done that, they are already scrambled and nicely aerated by the drop through the air into the bowl. For even fluffier eggs, hold the strainer 3-4 feet above the bowl.

And even if you want to impress your SO in the morning, DO NOT be tempted to skip the bowl and strain them from 3 or 4 feet directly into the hot pan. Trust me, you will do this only once.
