Test Kitchen Tips

  • A non-stick pan is your best friend when making eggs.
  • This is for one serving of scrambled eggs. Double, triple or quadruple the recipe if you’re feeding a crowd. Just make sure to use a larger frying pan.
  • There is a debate as to whether to add or not to add milk to scrambled eggs. Some say if you’re working with fresh eggs you do not need to add the milk. In the Test Kitchen, we feel, combined with the whisking, it makes the eggs fluffier.
  • Make them cheesy (cause who doesn’t love a bit of cheese) by stirring in shredded cheddar, Gouda or even small cubes of cream cheese.
