Why are eggs beaten before scrambling them?

As you stir, you’ll break down the egg curds that are forming making them smaller and softer. Whisk your eggs just before you plan on adding them to the pan — and whisk them vigorously. Whisking not only scrambles eggs, but it adds air and volume for fluffy eggs.

Do you add milk for scrambled eggs?

Adding milk or plain water to scrambled eggs is an optional step that affects the texture of your finished dish. For creamy scrambled eggs, you’ll add up to 1 tablespoon of milk for every egg. For fluffy scrambled eggs, you’ll add up to 1 tablespoon of water for every egg.

What is the purpose of adding milk to scrambled eggs?

Using milk in scrambled eggs results in eggs that are moist and, er, creamy. Texture-wise, they come out softer (some might say “gloppier”) than eggs without. Flavor-wise, they’re a bit more mellow and richer. The downside is that they don’t come out as fluffy (unless you’re just using a small amount).

How many eggs should you scramble for one person?

In my experience 4 eggs tends to be the easiest to deal with in a standard medium-sized skillet and scrambles the most evenly. For a small skillet, try 2 eggs at a time. If you have a very large skillet (over 11″), try 6 at a time.
