- Use a nonstick skillet and stir the eggs with a wooden spoon (metal can damage the nonstick surface and plastic may contain chemicals that can seep into your food when it’s heated or even melt). A well seasoned cast iron skillet can also work, but in this case, I prefer non-stick (and you know how much I love my cast iron skillet!).
- Stop cooking the eggs BEFORE they are all the way cooked. When most of the eggs have solidified and there is still a little bit of runny eggs, remove them from the pan and add to the plate. The heat of the eggs will finish cooking them by the time they are eaten, ensuring that they are not overcooked.
- Milk or cream- don’t use it. I’ve made scrambled eggs both ways (depending on whether or not I have milk in my fridge). But the basic consensus is that milk thins out the eggs, making them easier to overcook and diluting the flavor.

- Beat all ingredients except for olive oil in a small bowl with a fork for 30 seconds to a minute (until the eggs have broken up)
- Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet on medium-high heat.
- Add the egg mixture to the skillet.
- Stir constantly with a wooden spoon (don't use metal in a non-stick pan!), until eggs begin to congeal (about 2 minutes).
- Keep stirring until eggs are ALMOST all the way cooked. Immediately transfer to a plate.
- Garnish with remaining green onions and enjoy!
- In order to avoid over-cooking the eggs, which will make them dry, stop cooking them before they are completely done. The heat from the eggs will continue to cook them on the plate, which will leave you will perfectly cooked, melt-in-your mouth scrambled eggs every time!
