Do you have to put milk in scrambled eggs?

People feel strongly about whether to use milk in scrambled eggs! There are two schools of thought:

  • Don’t add milk – it makes the eggs too wet and overcooked
  • Add milk, because it’ll make fluffy scrambled eggs

Ultimately, you must decide. Maybe try each method and see which one you prefer!

Tips for the best scrambled eggs

  • If you want fluffy scrambled eggs, whisk the eggs vigorously for a full minute to add air and volume.
  • Choose a pan that’s the right size for the quantity of eggs – for two eggs, you’ll need an 8-inch pan.
  • Don’t cook them over high heat. Use medium or low heat.
  • Stir frequently, to cook the eggs evenly.
  • Don’t overcook. You’re not trying to brown the eggs, just cook them until they’re no longer runny.
