8 slices of bacon 🥓
4 large eggs 🍳
Salt and pepper, to taste 🧂
2 tablespoons butter 🧈
4 slices of bread 🍞
Butter for toasting (optional) 🧈
Preheat the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) 🌡️.
Arrange Bacon on a Baking Sheet:
Place a wire rack on a baking sheet to allow excess fat to drain.
Lay the bacon slices on the wire rack without overlapping.
Bake the Bacon:
Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.
Monitor the bacon as cooking times may vary.
While the bacon is cooking, crack the eggs into a bowl, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and whisk until well combined 🍳.
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet.
Give the eggs an occasional stir with a spatula. This helps them become beautifully large and fluffy. Let them set gradually, making sure to stir gently and consistently for that perfect, airy texture in your scrambled eggs.
Toast the Bread:
While the eggs are cooking, toast the bread slices using a toaster or in a skillet with a bit of butter if desired 🍞.
Drain and Serve:
Once the bacon is crispy, use tongs to transfer the strips to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess fat.
Place the crispy bacon strips on a plate.
Spoon the scrambled eggs onto the plate next to the bacon.
Serve with the toasted bread.
How To Get The Perfect Fluffy Scrambled Eggs Step-by-Step
How do you make restaurant style fluffy scrambled eggs? Cooking them slowly over low to medium heat, with constant and gentle stirring, allows the eggs to form delicate curds and attain a creamy texture. Adding a touch of butter enhances the richness and silkiness of the eggs. The result is a sumptuous plate of fluffy scrambled eggs that consistently delights diners with its velvety perfection.
4 large eggs
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper, to taste
Crack and Whisk Eggs:
Crack the eggs into a bowl, ensuring no shell pieces get in.
Whisk the eggs until the yolks and whites are fully combined.
Season with Salt and Pepper:
Add a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper to the whisked eggs. Adjust the seasoning to your taste preferences.
Place a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat and let it warm up.
Add the butter to the pan and let it melt, coating the bottom evenly.
Pour in Whisked Eggs:
Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet.
Allow the eggs to sit briefly, and then start stirring with a spatula.
Stir gently and continuously, ensuring you scrape the sides and bottom of the pan to form small, soft curds.
If the eggs cook too quickly, lower the heat. The key to fluffiness is a slow and gentle cooking process.
Keep stirring until the eggs are mostly set but still slightly creamy. This helps achieve a fluffy texture.
Remove from Heat:
As soon as the eggs reach your desired consistency, remove the pan from the heat.
Transfer the fluffy scrambled eggs to a plate immediately to prevent overcooking.
Final Seasoning (Optional):
Optionally, taste and adjust the seasoning with additional salt and pepper.
