Oh you have to be using a wok to make scrambled eggs right? Using a wok has to be one of the all time best ways to make scrambled eggs. I discovered this way when making egg fried rice! I found that using the wok you can rustle up speedy scrambled eggs in just a few minuets and its super easy!
Why Wok To Scramble
For me a wok and a good rubber spatula are the best and only tools of the trade needed here, unless we are counting the heat source of course. A wok works wonders here, The non stick coating makes it a breeze to keep the eggs from sticking, and its a breeze to clean too! Bonus!
Using a wok also makes it easier to keep the eggs moving. When using a pan the eggs can catch a touch in the corners and its just more awkward. So to sum it up a wok is going to make it easier. We love the easy option!
The Golden Scrambled Eggs
Achieving the golden coloured scrambled eggs is easy if we follow the simple rule; Don’t Season The Scrambled Eggs Until The End. That easy to remember rule is what will keep your eggs from discolouring during the cooking process. The addition of butter at the start also adds a lovely golden nutty joy to the eggs too!
The Essential Scrambled Eggs Ingredients
Okay so there is a couple of ingredients I say we must have to make totally yummy scrambled eggs. Nothing to complicated or expensive here the basic standard ingredients needed are 1 tsp Olive Oil – Salt – Pepper and Butter. A note on getting super buttery scrambled eggs is to follow the butter to egg ratio.
