The Important Tip For Cooking Softer Scrambled Eggs
Soft-style scrambled eggs have a rich, velvety texture and more defined curds, both of which are achieved by keeping the heat low and the eggs moving in the pan as they cook.
Letting the eggs cook rather slowly allows you to have more control over their consistency. It also helps the eggs retain their moisture, which is critical for a softer texture.
By constantly stirring your eggs gently with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, you’ll knock the air out of them, resulting in a creamy texture rather than a fluffy one.
Begin scrambling the eggs as soon as they hit the pan and feel free to take momentary breaks, but not for more than 30 seconds at a time. Curds will form around the 5-minute mark.
