Simple Scrambled Eggs

Simple Scrambled Eggs


  • 8 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter


Whisk eggs, 4 tbsp. cold water and a pinch each salt and pepper in a medium bowl until blended but still thick and ropey.

Heat a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Add butter; tilt the pan to coat. Add the eggs all at once. Adjust the heat between medium-low and medium to maintain a steady sizzle.

Using a rubber spatula, lift the setting eggs from the edges of the pan, fold them into the runny eggs in the center and cook until the eggs are barely set, about 3 minutes.
