So, I figured I would start this blog off with the most important meal of the day, breakfast! Woo! For this post I’ll be focusing on my adventure with scrambled eggs, because this meal is one of my breakfast favorites. So let’s get crackin’!
Preparation: First off, make sure you have all of the ingredients: some eggs, a splash of milk, and a slice of cheese. I also highly recommend using PAM Non-stick cooking spray on the pan so the eggs won’t stick.
Crack the eggs into a cup or bowl (I usually crack about 3-4 eggs for about 1-2 servings). To crack an egg, hit the egg against the edge of the bowl. It should have one big crack going down the center. Let the yolk fall out of the shell into the bowl and throw away the shell. The hardest part of this is applying enough pressure to crack it yet not applying so much pressure that it shatters and gets bits of the shell everywhere. I suggest using your first egg as practice. When I did it, I cracked three eggs and managed to only have a little bit of shell mixed in, and honestly, I was very impressed with myself.
Cooking: Now that the eggs have been cracked, the hard part is over. Stir the eggs and pour them onto the pan and splash a little bit of milk in with the eggs (I’m pretty sure the milk just makes the eggs fluffier). Then rip up a slice of cheese into a bunch of little pieces and spread them out across the pan. After these steps, turn the stove on and begin cooking.
To set the temperature, I usually just turn the stove onto the highest setting so the eggs will cook faster. Some people prefer to let the eggs cook at a lower temperature so that they can make sure the eggs are cooked to perfection, but I’m not patient enough for that. In your endeavors, feel free to pick what temperature you think best suits your morning. Once the stove starts to heat up, start stirring the ingredients around with a spatula and make sure the eggs are constantly moving so they won’t get burnt. You’ll know the eggs are done when they become fully solid.
Final Touches: Throw those eggs on a plate, get some bacon sizzling in the microwave, toast a couple slices of bread, and you should be set for an amazing breakfast.
