Fluffy and Yummy Scrambled Eggs

There are many ways to make scrambled eggs, but this method is my favorite way to make them both fluffy and yummy! My secret: cheese!

Jump to Recipe

A few months ago, I was making scrambled eggs for myself at breakfast. Ryan asked me to try a bite. He immediately said, “I like it” and kept asking for more. The next thing I knew, he had eaten most of my breakfast and I was still hungry!

Since then we’ve been giving him an option at breakfast and he often asks me to make him eggs. Justin has tried a few times. But apparently, I make scrambled eggs better because he says I need to make the eggs!

The name for this recipe comes from my nephew. We have a hilarious (yet not altogether appropriate) video of him trying to tell us his eggs are “fluffy and yummy” but it sounds like something completely different and nowhere near as nice! If you want to view it, check it out on my youtube channel by clicking this link!

My dad taught me how to make eggs this way, and it’s how I’ve been making them ever since. I add just a small amount of milk into the eggs and a whole lot of shredded cheddar cheese. I prefer to make scrambled eggs on the wetter side so take them off just as they start to brown.

There are so many different ways to make eggs, and no one way is right or wrong, it’s all down to preference.

Scrambled Eggs Step by Step

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

Preparation

No matter what way you like your eggs, start by greasing a skillet and heating it over medium heat. Then crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them with a fork. Add in whatever else you want, such as milk, cheese, salt, and pepper.

Pour it all into the warm pan and let it cook for a minute. Then use a spatula or cooking fork to move the eggs around in the pan so they all cook. The best utensil will depend on how you like your eggs. I like them broken up really small, so I find that a cooking fork works best for me. If you prefer larges bits of egg, similar to what you would find in a diner-style restaurant, then a spatula would work better.

Keep stirring the eggs every so often until they are cooked to your desired doneness. As I said, I like mine just before they brown, which takes about 5-7 minutes. Also, since I like them broken up more, I continuously stir the eggs, but you don’t have to stir as often if you want them a different texture.

Eggs should be eaten almost immediately as they tend to cool off very quickly. If you are making them as part of a bigger breakfast, make sure they will be the last thing finished. I like toast with my eggs, so I usually put the toast in before I start the eggs, then butter it while the eggs are cooking.

There are many health benefits that you gain from eggs, including numerous vitamins and minerals, and antioxidants, which can help reduce the risk of heart disease, lower bad cholesterol, and many others. I also find that a breakfast of eggs and toast in the morning keeps me full for much longer than a bowl of cereal.

    This post made me hungry for some scrambled eggs. I love adding cheese and milk to mine too. It’s such a simple but filling recipe.

    Oh now I’m hungry for breakfast! My husband makes scrambled eggs on the weekend, it’s definitely one of his favorites.

  4. This breakfast looks so delicious!!! I love eggs for breakfast! I use a little milk to make them fluffy too but also somtimes instead I put in just a pinch of sugar before I whip the eggs with a fork… this makes super fluffy eggs 🙂

    I’m not big on just eggs, but I scramble them into fried rice when I make it and never do it right haha. Maybe now I can get it right! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Oh man, I think I might have to have breakfast for dinner tonight! Scrambled eggs are my favorite, but scrambled eggs with cheese? YES PLEASE!

  7. I just ate dinner and your pictures have got me wanting breakfast again ! Looks like the nicest scramble egg I’ve seen x

  8. Scramble eggs are popular in our menu too. It’s one breakfast item that is surely going to sell like hot cake at home and it never goes wrong. Like you most of the time I have to share my portion with kids…as long as they are eating, mummy is v happy to share.

  9. Something that may seem as simple as scrambled eggs can get screwed up in the blink of an eye. I used to always over cook them and they will usually turn out bland in flavor. I’ve never added milk to them so I’ll be sure to try that out.

    Have a great day,

    Estée

  11. My husband makes scrambled eggs often. It is definitely something that is fickle and up to the person for how to make them. I do know he is constantly stirring and breaking them up too!

  12. Oooo scrambled eggs! My daughters favorite. Honestly I suck at making eggs. I might have to try your technique out!

    Simple and yummy! Great option to have when there is time shortage and not that much “cooking” energy left for the day 🙂

    Great recipe! I love scrambled eggs, they are my favourite way to eat the eggs. I prefer them without any addition, my secret to make them super fluffy and not dry at all is to cover the pan the last minute of cooking. The eggs tend to get fluffy with steam, go figure, is a chemical thing!

    1. I never thought about covering the pan while they cook! I will definitely be giving that a try the next time I make them. Although, I’ll still keep cheese in it because I just love cheese 🙂
