I have always heard people argue over whether you need to add water or milk to the scrambled eggs. Um no. You add neither. The ingredient to making perfect scrambled eggs is butter. Delicious, creamy, butter from grass fed cows. It makes all the difference in the world.
I eat eggs nearly everyday, usually around mid-morning. The fat and protein keeps me full for hours and I find that over the course of the day I snack less if I have eggs in the morning.
Remember, on a low carb and keto diet FAT IS YOUR FRIEND!
I have a specific non-stick pan that I use only for eggs. I find that I can taste flavors of other things that have been cooked in this pan and I don’t like it. So it’s eggs only for this pan. Sometimes the Mr will get back at me for something and will cook meat or something garlicky in this pan and it drives me bonkers!
To make the scrambled eggs delicious and creamy start with room temperature eggs. Just break them in to the pan, no need to scramble them ahead of time. Add a tablespoon of butter. If your butter is unsalted or you prefer more salt, add a dash of Kosher salt.
Place the pan on the stovetop and turn it to medium. Using a silicone scraper spatula, continuously scrape the bottom and sides of the pan as the eggs cook. Right before the scrambled eggs are cooked to your preference, remove the pan from the heat.
