How to Make Scrambled Eggs
Here’s what you’ll need to make this scrambled eggs recipe:
- Butter: Don’t skimp on this one! No oil replacements. BUTTER! You need it.
- Eggs: Obviously, this is another no replacement possible.
- Water: This is for mixing in with the eggs to create creamy eggs.
- Salt and Pepper: For seasoning! Adjust the amounts to suit yourself.
How to Cook Scrambled Eggs
Making a scrambled eggs recipe is super easy as long as you follow these important steps:
- Butter: The butter needs to be melted before adding the eggs to prevent them from sticking.
- Blend: A blender will quickly mix the water and eggs to create a frothy mixture.
- Stir: Pour the eggs in the pan and then mix with a rubber spatula.
- Do not whisk the eggs once they’re in the pan. You want large chunks, not tiny pieces.
- If you don’t have a blender, whisk the eggs and water with a fork until light and frothy.
- Remove the eggs from the heat while still moist to prevent overcooking.
How Much Protein is in Scrambled Eggs?
Each large egg contains about 6g of protein. To calculate how much protein you need in a day, divide your weight by 20s and then multiply by 7.
For example, a person weighing 160 lbs would need about 56g of protein a day. Of course, that’s just an average.
People who are trying to gain muscle, pregnant, etc. may need more protein than that. And some people may have certain conditions which require them to eat less.
This scrambled eggs recipe calls for 4 eggs so it should provide 24g of protein.
How to Make Fluffy Scrambled Eggs
So what’s the key to getting the perfect amount of fluffy in your scrambled eggs?
The whipping! When your eggs are light, frothy, and bubbly before they go in the pan, that’s the secret!
So don’t be afraid to whip those eggs up into a frenzy. The other secret? Don’t overcook!
When you remove the eggs from the heat while there is still a little moisture left, it prevents them from drying out.
No one wants dry, chopped up eggs!
Can Dogs Eat Scrambled Eggs?
Dogs can eat scrambled eggs as long as they are cooked. Raw eggs can be harmful for dogs.
Dogs also shouldn’t be eating eggs that are cooked in butter, oil, or with any sort of seasoning. That rules out giving your dogs this recipe.
However, you can always toss an extra egg into a pan next to yours and give your dog a treat too!
I find it’s easier to give them hard boiled eggs. Then I don’t have to worry about the eggs sticking.

Are Scrambled Eggs Healthy?
Adding scrambled eggs to your diet is one of the healthiest things you can do for your mornings!
Packed with nutrients and protein, they fill you up until lunch and help your body to function too.
The majority of the health community agrees, eggs of all kinds are good for you!
If you’re looking for an extra healthy option, try mixing some veggies into your eggs or serving on the side.

Can Cats Have Scrambled Eggs?
Your cats can enjoy scrambled eggs too! Here’s some things to keep in mind.
Raw eggs can carry all sorts of bacteria which can be harmful and sickening to both humans and pets.
Always cook any eggs you or your animals are going to be consuming. Including your cats.
Also, it’s best if you avoid adding any seasonings to your cats eggs as they just don’t process them like we do.
Hard boiled eggs seem to be the easiest to prepare for cats.

Can Babies Eat Scrambled Eggs?
Current research shows scrambled eggs are perfect for serving to any baby over the age of 6 months.
All those nutrients do good things for our little ones!
Always fully cook the eggs when feeding to a baby. Babies have a harder time digesting undercooked food than adults do.
Also, butter, seasoning, and things like that should not be introduced at the same time. And some things like butter should wait until they are at least a year old.
Always be sure to watch your baby if it’s the first time trying a new food for any allergic reactions.
