    Spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray or add a small amount of butter. Heat pan over medium-high heat until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Pour in the egg mixture and reduce the heat to medium-low.

  4. Step 4

    Gently move the eggs across the bottom of the pan with a spatula, forming soft curds. For larger curds, let the eggs set a little longer. For smaller curds, stir more frequently. You may need to shift the pan from time to time to redistribute the uncooked egg mixture.

  5. Step 5

    Continue stirring until there is no more liquid egg in the pan, but before the eggs appear dry. Immediately remove the eggs and plate.

If you want to elevate you scrambled eggs a bit, you can fold in any number of ingredients from fine herbs to ratatouille. Just make sure that whatever ingredients you add are fully cooked and incorporate them near the end of the cooking process.
