The Biggest Mistake You're Making With Scrambled Eggs

When getting to know someone in a romantic way there are several important questions you will need to ask. After discussing morals, hopes, and dreams you'll finally get to the all-important question: how do you like your eggs?

Humans eating eggs is a tradition that goes back thousands of years. According to Food Timeline, around 1400 B.C.E, fowl were domesticated and were laying eggs for human consumption in Egypt and also China. Maybe Mark Antony actually asked Cleopatra how she liked her eggs in the morning ...

When preparing eggs, be it for someone you love, or for yourself, there are many different methods at your disposal, notes Kates Kitchen. However, there is one way that requires the least amount of finesse, and that's to scramble them. But, did you know that as easy as it may seem to make scrambled eggs, there's a big mistake you may be making with them?

It's Too Darn Hot

Eggs are very delicate and need to be handled with care. A coddled egg is called so for a reason. While eating undercooked or raw eggs poses a risk of salmonella, eating eggs that are overcooked is also unhealthy for you, warns the Times of India.

According to Eat This, Not That, New York City chef, Andrew Whitney says that the biggest mistake you may be making when scrambling eggs has to do with the temperature of your pan. If the stovetop is too hot, the eggs can either burn or dry out, so the best thing you can do is to start with a pan on low to medium heat. Whitney also recommends adding room temperature butter and then adding the egg mixture before the butter is completely melted. Using a rubber spatula to gently turn the eggs will then give them a more delicate and tender consistency.

While it's easy to make mistakes while preparing eggs in other ways, the next time your paramour asks you to make them breakfast, you'll be equipped with all the knowledge you need to knock scrambled eggs out of the park.
