Scrambled eggs are one of the simplest breakfast meals to make, but that does not mean they can’t have variety. From last nights leftovers to a few splashes of vino, here are some scrambled eggs hacks that offer something for everyone.
Save it for later;
Not sure what to do with your leftovers from last night dinner.? Well, a lot of leftovers taste amazing when added to your scrambled eggs the next day. From day old roasted veggies and cooked chicken to that last cup of chili, there is arguably no easier way t use your leftover food than by throwing it all into your infinitely forgiving egg scramble. Since your cooked meals have already been well seasoned with plenty of time to meld flavors. Incorporating them into eggs means you get to enjoy an instant meal loaded with goodness.
Dare to Dairy;
If you are a fan of super soft, creamy scrambled eggs, try adding a splash of milk or heavy cream to the mix. You can also use thicker dairy options like sour cream. The more liquid you incorporate into your eggs, the softer and moister they will be. Keep in mind that while thicker ingredients like sour cream will make your eggs richer, they also make them slightly firmer.
Light, fluffy scrambled eggs are wonderful, we can all agree on that. Try adding sparkling wine the next time you make scrambled eggs to achieve this coveted texture. Whisk in about one-quarter cup for every two eggs and you will have yourself some impossible delicate, pillowy eggs in no time.
While most of us coat our pans with butter when making scrambled eggs, there is a better option available; ghee or clarified butter. Ghee is ancient and goes back thousands and thousands of years. Since regular butter is a fat with a low smoking point, it tends to burn. As a result, your eggs retain some burnt flavor. On the other hand, clarified butter is the milk fat from butter after the solids have been separated from the milk proteins and water. Use a teaspoon of this pure butterfat to cook your eggs and you can avoid any residual burning butter taste.
