    Fluffy scrambled eggs

    Shop Now
    I was wondering if anyone out there has found a way to make their scrambled eggs fluffy without the addition of milk, in a way that is Paleo-friendly. Made my eggs this morning without the milk and while they tasted delicious I feel like they could have been better.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Cook them in lots of bacon grease, mix often with your spatula, and don't let them get dry.

    I've seen many recipes that simply call for a tablespoon of water.

    Also, I use my single serve blender for about 1 second per egg to aerate them before I cook them. Much longer will make the eggs tough.

    Yep, the immersion blender will make them rather fluffy.

    heavy cream is acceptable in primal if you can tolerate it, and works wonderfully to make scrambled eggs.

    This. Add cheese as well if you can. My eggs have always been dry and this makes them very yummy

    Just a second with an immersion blender... or whisk them really well, which is like a little workout for your arm (make sure you swap hands and do both sides!)

    The real secret to fluffy... after you put that air in them DON'T overcook them!
    Overcooking is death to scrambled eggs... it makes them sad and awful.
    You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

    Pan temp makes a difference also. I just use a splash of water, whisk a little with a fork, and put in a med-low heat. Hot pan turns them to rubber..

    Add cream and butter.
