Jamie Oliver's Simple Tip For Perfectly Cooked Scrambled Eggs
By Heidi Chaya
Eggs, for all their single-ingredient simplicity, are deceptively difficult to master in the kitchen, even if you’re making scrambled eggs. Cooking a perfectly scrambled egg can sometimes be incredibly tough, and everybody prefers a different texture; luckily, Jamie Oliver has an easy tip for perfectly fluffy scrambled eggs.
It might sound counterintuitive, but on his website, Jamie Oliver says you must remove your eggs from heat just before they appear fully cooked. You can either turn off the burner or nudge them off it, but either way, you need to keep in mind that eggs will continue to cook in the residual warmth, Chef Oliver explains.
Alton Brown says that while beating your eggs, you want to see some foam, but don’t overdo it, either. Instead, per The Food We Know, you should beat the eggs thoroughly in a bowl right before you add them to the pan, add a fatty liquid like whole milk or cream, and salt your eggs after you cook them to keep the texture.
