Today I’m sharing my secret ingredient for perfectly fluffy and light scrambled eggs!  This is my new favorite way to make them and I’ll never go back to regular old scrambled eggs!  This secret ingredient is so unexpected, so it was a pleasant surprise when I tried it out and it worked amazingly.  The secret is…

Sour cream!

It gives the eggs a little sweet yet tangy taste, but it’s not overpowering at all.  Yes, I know, it sounds a little strange, but add about a teaspoon of sour cream per egg you make and you’ll have the best scrambled eggs ever.  I promise.


Secret Scrambled Eggs

Ingredients:

  • eggs
  • sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • butter for cooking

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, scramble the eggs first (if you don’t, the sour cream will be difficult to incorporate).  After they are well scrambled, add in a moderate teaspoon of sour cream per egg.  Continue to whisk until most lumps disappear (there will still be a few).  Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Heat your pan to medium high heat and melt one tablespoon of butter (for 3-4 eggs, so plan according depending on how many eggs you’re making).
  3. Once butter is melted, add in eggs and cook, stirring occasionally to scramble, until eggs are almost fully cooked.  Leave them a little bit wet and transfer to a plate where they will finish cooking on their own.
  4. Enjoy your fluffy eggs with any other sides.  I added a bit of cheese and green onions to mine. 🙂
