5 Delicious Ways to Upgrade Your Scrambled Eggs


Think beyond basic scrambled: try these delicious variations for simply better breakfasts.

For each recipe below, beat 2 large eggs with a whisk just until well combined. For best results, cook them low and slow. Warm a nonstick skillet over low heat. Melt 1 Tbsp. butter or heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in the pan. In some recipes, you’ll cook the add-ins first; others call for adding the eggs first. Either way, once everything is in the pan, cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs reach desired doneness. It can take several minutes, but the resulting silky texture makes it worth the wait. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
