  • Melt butter in a skillet over low heat until bubbling. Add whisked eggs; cook, stirring frequently for even, moist curds, until thickened and creamy, but still shiny, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Remove scrambled eggs from the pan before they begin to look dry, as they will continue to thicken off the heat.

Cook's Notes:

Variation: Saute 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper and 1/4 cup chopped mushrooms in 1 tablespoon olive oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir into eggs just before serving.

You can add blistered tomatoes and shredded aged and/or soft cheeses to this if you like; add just before serving.
