Scrambled eggs are great, but they’re even better when they taste extra special. If you’re looking to take your egg game to the next level, here’s an ingredient that will do the trick—in fact, it’ll make your scrambled eggs taste amazing! You can add it right into your eggs and still have them come out great, so don’t be afraid to experiment with it!
Things You’ll Need
For this recipe, you’ll need eggs, kosher salt, black pepper, butter, and lemon.
1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk to combine the egg whites with the egg yolks. A fork will work in a pinch.
2. Pour the eggs into a pan over medium-low heat and add butter until it melts and starts to foam up on top of them.
3. Add salt, pepper, and lemon juice to your eggs while they are cooking (about 1/4 teaspoon of each) and cook for about two minutes before stirring gently but continuously until they are done scrambled.
4. Serve your eggs with toast or English muffins for breakfast or as an appetizer for brunch!
Trick #1: Finely Grated Lemon Zest
Finely grate the zest of one lemon, then juice them and set aside.
2. Crack six eggs into a bowl and whisk until they are fully combined with each other.
3. Add in the grated zest, juice, salt, and pepper to taste. Mix well with a fork or whisk to fully incorporate the ingredients together before cooking them on medium heat in a nonstick frying pan with butter or oil for three to five minutes or until they are cooked to your liking.
4. Garnish with extra lemon slices for added flavor!
Trick #2: A Dash of White Vinegar
In order to make your scrambled eggs taste amazing, try adding a dash of white vinegar. It may seem strange, but this ingredient will cut through the richness in your dish and make it that much better. There are a few different ways you can incorporate this ingredient into your recipe: you can use it as part of a marinade for the eggs before cooking them or add it to the pan once you’ve already started scrambling them with butter. Finally, you can use a splash of vinegar in lieu of milk when making hollandaise sauce.
Trick #3: A Splash of Milk (and a little butter!)
Adding a splash of milk to your scrambled eggs can make them extra fluffy and creamy, but it’s not just about the richness. In order to scramble eggs that are perfect every time, you need a little bit of everything: butter for flavor, eggs for protein, and milk for fat—and if you add a squeeze of lemon juice or some fresh herbs too, you’ll have tasty scrambled eggs that are good for you. Milk is especially important in this recipe because it not only adds an extra dimension of flavor, but it also helps the eggs set up better so they’re easier to flip.
Let’s Get Cooking!
In a food processor or blender, combine the eggs with about 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice. Blend until you have a nice, smooth mixture. Heat some butter in your frying pan over medium-high heat and add the egg mixture to it. Cook for about 3-4 minutes, stirring often to cook evenly. Season with salt and pepper to taste and voila! You’ve just made scrambled eggs that will leave your taste buds happy and your stomach full.
