Having eggs for breakfast has been a staple for hundreds of years throughout the world. Yet cooking eggs for breakfast can be challenging for many home cooks.
Well I’ll share a few secrets for making both scrambled and sunny side up eggs with ease.
The Perfect Scramble
The first thing to know is don’t overcook the eggs. For tender, buttery eggs try these simple tips.
If you want extra moisture and richness, try whisking a little milk, buttermilk, or sour cream to your beaten eggs.
To cook, in a skillet melt 1 Tbsp butter; pour eggs into skillet. Let them sit for 20 to 30 seconds or so or until the bottom begins to set.
With a rubber spatula lift and fold the cooked part towards the center, allowing uncooked eggs to flow to the edges. Repeat until eggs are cooked through but still glossy.
Serve immediately so they don’t continue cooking and dry out.
Sunny side Success

Reduce heat to low, if the heat is too high the eggs will scorch along the sides and bottom. Cook eggs for 3-4 minutes.
