Ingredients for Scrambled Eggs

  • Large eggs – you can use as many eggs as you’d like.
  • Butter – the number of eggs will determine the amount of butter needed. For every 3 eggs, use 1 tablespoon of butter (3:1 ratio). Butter makes scrambled eggs extra soft and fluffy.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What mix-ins can you add to scrambled eggs?

Anything you add to an omelette can be added to scrambled eggs. I recommend precooking meat or veggies (except for spinach) and dicing into small pieces. You can also add herbs and/or cheese! Meat ideas include bacon, sausage, ham, etc. Vegetables include peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, etc. My favorite cheese mix-ins are gruyere, cheddar and Swiss. Herb ideas include chives and parsley.

When do you add mix-ins to scrambled eggs?

I like to add my mix-ins to egg mixture about 1 minute after the eggs hit the preheated pan. Herbs can be added directly to the egg mixture before pouring into the pan.

How long do scrambled eggs last in the fridge?

Enjoy scrambled eggs within 4 days. Make sure to cool before covering tightly in the fridge.

How do I reheat scrambled eggs?

Reheat scrambled eggs in 30 second intervals in the microwave, or in a pan with a little more butter over medium heat. Stir often until warm. Scrambled eggs, however, are best enjoyed right away (and not reheated) if possible!

Can you freeze scrambled eggs?

Yes, you can freeze scrambled eggs for up to 4 months. I do recommend enjoying scrambled eggs right away (and not freezing) if possible!

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs

Notes

  • You can use as many eggs as you’d like, maintaining the 3:1 egg to butter ratio.
  • If you aren’t using a nonstick skillet, you’ll need to grease your pan with butter. Grease pan right before you add the egg mixture.
  • Mix-in ideas are in the blog post above!
