I watched a video on Facebook a couple days ago, it was Gordon Ramsey’s version of scrambled eggs. Before I clicked on the video I thought to myself, this is going to be great, I’m going to make the very best scrambled eggs ever after I watch this video. I don’t know if you’ve seen the video or not but they may have been prepared properly but it’s certainly not the way Mom used to make.
So I reverted back to my original and simple scrambled eggs recipe that has yet to fail me and since this is all about learning basic skills I thought I would share my Cheesy Scrambled Eggs
When making scrambled eggs you want to remember the general rule of 2 eggs per person, unless you are running short on eggs, in that case use 1 egg per person plus an extra egg for good measure (so if you are making scrambled eggs for 2 people you would use 3 eggs, or for 4 people use 5 eggs).
The best part of cheesy scrambled eggs is when stringy gooey cheese is used, my personal favorite is provolone, it’s inexpensive and delicious on so many things. If you haven’t tried it yet I would recommend it.
Here is my recipe:
Oil (about the size of two-quarters)
2 Eggs per person
1 slice of cheese (whatever you have in your fridge)
Step 1: Put oil in frying pan and set the burner to medium heat (if the dials on your stove are numbered I would suggest around a 5, if not, set it 180 degrees from the off position)
Step 2: while oil is heating up whisk together the two eggs until you can’t differentiate the yolk from the whites, it should be a little foamy at this point
Step 3: Pour eggs into hot frying pan
Step 4: break apart the cheese slice and place in the pan, press them down allowing the egg to wash over the cheese
Step 5: Once the egg starts to cook around the outside (you can see the white around the rim in the picture below) run your spatula underneath the egg mixing it up.
Step 6: Repeat until you have clumps of partially cooked egg
Step 7: Flip the egg bits over and let cook until it starts to turn a slight brown
Step 8: (optional) Just before you serve it up you can break the egg down into smaller pieces or leave it in bigger chunks for a more fluffy texture.
The white pieces that look uncooked in the picture below are actually bits of provolone cheese
Voila – Cheesy scrambled eggs!! Enjoy
