The Best Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs are a favorite of mine but I like all the ways to cook eggs. Here is how I make the best scrambled eggs.


  • 6 - 8 Farm Fresh Eggs
  • 4 tbs Heavy Cream
  • 1 tbs Butter
  • Salt & Pepper to taste after cooking
I buy eggs from a local farm and they are so much tastier coming from pasture raised hens. The yolks have a deep rich color. The freshness of local eggs cannot be touched by grocery store eggs - no matter what the store cartons say. Typically eggs found at the grocery store were laid nearly a month before the store ever gets them. Eggs I buy from the farm can last me a couple of months.

Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to melt in the skillet as it heats.

In a mixing bowl, crack half a dozen eggs. Add heavy cream to eggs and whisk. Whisk them good now to get fluffy eggs.

Add egg mixture to the skillet and scrambled to desired doneness. I do not add salt and pepper while cooking so that the eggs do not dry out. Just allow those eating the eggs to season them themselves. 

This recipe feeds 3-4 people. If cooking for a crowd or big appetites feel free to double the recipe. 

 Try these tasty variations to the recipe:

Cheesy Eggs - At the end of cooking add your favorite cheese and turn until melted, serve.

Sausage Eggs - Scramble 1/4 lb breakfast sausage until done then add eggs and scramble together until the eggs are cooked.

Remember to always use a rubber spatula in your nonstick cookware.

  1. I make "Eggs-erroneous" often, it's easy because there is no recipe! I just grab what left overs (and some fresh vegies) I can find in the fridge. Heat them in a skillet with some butter and then scramble eggs with them. It is usually quite good and it is different every time!

    1. I love dishes you can incorporate leftovers.

  2. I'll be making these for breakfast tomorrow! =) Thanks for sharing.
