WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE SCRAMBLED EGGS WITHOUT MILK
- Eggs: Any large eggs will work, but try and use good quality eggs for best results. If you could get them from a local farmer that would be amazing.
- Seasoning: Salt, black pepper, and fresh herbs to enhance the flavor of the eggs. I used dill, but parsley or chives would also be delicious.
HOW TO MAKE SCRAMBLED EGGS WITHOUT MILK
- In a small bowl whisk eggs with a tablespoon of water until they're completely combined. You want no trace of egg whites
- Pour the egg mixture into a cold non-stick pan. Turn the heat on low and let the bottom of the eggs start to cook
- Once the bottom has started cooking, use a silicone spatula to gently stir them around
- When they're about 90% cooked, add in a pinch of salt, pepper, and chopped dill.
- Turn the heat off and continue to gently stir eggs and let the residual heat finish the cooking process

HOMEMADE BREAKFAST BURRITO

AIR FRYER BREAKFAST PIZZAS
- Top an English muffin pizza with salsa, scrambled eggs, bacon bits, and cheddar cheese/
- Don't use liquid egg. It takes 30 seconds to whisk your own eggs
- Start in a cold pan to gently bring the heat up so you won't scorch the whisked eggs when they go into the frying pan
- Cook in either a nonstick pan or stainless steel pan with a little bit of olive oil to prevent sticking
- Cook over low heat. High heat or even medium heat will cause the eggs to cook too fast
- Season towards the end of the cooking process to keep the eggs from turning gray
- I turn the heat off when everything is about 90% cooked and let the residual heat finish cooking them for best results
- If you don't like a soft scramble with a fluffy texture, cook them longer. The texture is up to personal taste, so use your judgement
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I make scrambled eggs without milk?
Yes, no milk is required to make the best scrambled eggs.
What can I use in place of milk?
I use just a tiny splash of water. You can use almond milk or another non dairy milk if you prefer creamy eggs.
Is water or milk better?
I find that water is better for a fluffy scrambled egg because the steam evaporates and releases, in turn creating a fluffier egg.
Can you reheat cooked scrambled eggs?
You can, but I recommend against it. Eggs really are best enjoyed freshly cooked.
If you want to reheat them, put the eggs with a tiny bit of olive oil into a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Use a rubber spatula to gently stir them around until heated through. Drain off any extra liquid that's seeped out of the eggs and enjoy.
How do I store any leftovers?
As I said, leftover scrambled egg aren't really that great. But you can keep any leftover in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
