You will not find any lighter or fluffier scrambled eggs than these my Mom taught me to make. These take a little longer than scrambling in pan. The time is worth it. They are creamy, fluffy and light. The secret is cooking them slowly over low heat in a double boiler. They are truly decadent and adding cheese or herbs only increases that magic.
