Travel is one of those things that exposes you to so much, in so many ways.  Last summer had me traveling in the Suburban, both near and far.  Talk radio is my preferred source of entertainment on the road.  Everything from political to NPR to local morning DJ's, keep me informed.  On one such jaunt I listened to two local guys discuss how an elder family member made scrambled eggs.  



I took in the details.  As a cook myself, I need all the hot tips I can get.  




Though an interesting tale, I didn't think much of it until about a month later when I heard about the best scrambled eggs Colonel Sanders ever ate.  Low and behold it was about the same recipe as I had heard previously.  


How ever many eggs you break into your bowl, take one of those half shells and put in half the amount of water as there are eggs.  

Example - 6 eggs = 3 half shells of water 

Whisk together in a bowl and transfer to a skillet.  Constantly move the mixture with a FORK until small curds form.  Do not move the mixture around with a spatula. 

A spatula creates big clumps, which equals unhappy eggs.  

Happy eggs = happy people

  1. An argument if liquid is needed in this house. I always use a splash.

  2. I use a little milk and some cheese then whisk lightly and cut the heat off before they are done.

  3. ...I cook an omelet each morning, little did I know that there was a recipe to follow. From what I read lately NPR may be be come an endangered species.

  4. I've been adding water to my eggs ever since a chef told me this "trick."
    Where did I ever think adding MILK would make my scrambled eggs more creamy?

  5. Try this. In a blender, add eggs and heavy cream. Pour into a pan on low heat that has melted butter in it. With a spatula, keep sliding the eggs to the middle until all is jelled as you like them. Egg clouds.

  6. Water with the eggs, interesting! Going to have to give that a try...
    I've always used milk in this same way when making scrambled eggs but not nearly so much.

  7. First time I have heard the half shell water bit . . .
    I will give it a try and name them, “Michelle’s Scramble.”
    I like that bright red tea pot next to the yellow . . .

  10. I add a little milk and pepper and I have always used a spatula. Next time I'll just use a fork.

  11. I always add milk or cream to mine and whisk. The extra liquid makes them fluffier. Be sure to not over cook.

  12. That sounds good! I've never done it with a fork before for fear of scratching a pan. My hubs always puts in a little cottage cheese or cream cheese.

  13. We add water to ours too. It is a Jamie Oliver recipe that we use.

  14. I use a T of water for two eggs when I make omelets. But scrambled eggs I do more like the person above who used cream and melted butter. Either one or the other is no more than a once a week treat for breakfast.

  15. I've never used water - just milk. I'll have to try this!

  17. My husband has always used water with the eggs. I prefer milk with mine. I did not realized I did it wrong after all these years.
