Scrambled eggs: 2 ways
Back with a simple recipe that should be in every person’s recipe arsenal. Eggs are simply the best ingredient IMO. You can never cook them wrong and they taste great all the time. There are many, many ways to cook an egg but my personal favourite, the scrambled egg. I make 2 types of scrambled eggs very often. One is the milky Western version while is other is an Asian version that I often make for dinner.
There are many many reasons why I love scrambled eggs. Here are some of them:
- They remind me of buffet breakfasts.
- You can never ruin them by poor flipping skills etc – they are meant to be all mixed in!
- You can jazz it up with any ingredients.
- It goes with anything – from rice to bread.
- It is so easy to make you can cook them half-asleep.
- Every bite tastes like smooth eggy heaven.
- It is an amazing comfort food.
- It never fails to impress.
The list goes one but I think I’ll stop here. I think you get the point. To me, scrambled eggs are the bees knees and I’m sure others out there feel the same. In fact I am writing this post because I had 2 friends who asked if I would write a post on how to make milky scrambled eggs. So here it is! Plus the Asian version if you are inclined to try it out . Hope you enjoy it your scramble eggs as much as I do!
