I melt a bit of real butter and add lightly beaten eggs with salt and pepper, no other liquid but sometimes a few drops of real cream if I have it. Cool on low/med heat slowly stirring until they start to set, then softly fold until cooked thru. Perfect every time

I make them not runny, but not rubbery either. I get the pan real hot and once they start to curd, I'll turn the burner completely off, sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese on them and once that melts they're just about the right texture.

Try cracking them directly in the pan (no beating) with S&P. Let the whites set a bit, then gently start moving them around. Once the whites are mostly set, break the yolks and gently fold them with the whites. You want to still see distinct white and yellow. They'll turn out really creamy. I learned this method a couple months ago, and it was a game changer for me. I had no idea how much better I would like them!

When scrambled I have to have mine done, no slime. But I do use low to med low heat as I don't want them brown, just done.

My husband will eat nothing but scrambled eggs and deviled eggs and they have to be completely cooked, not soft, not curds, not mushy, cooked. So if I am cooking eggs the way he likes them the way I am cooking the eggs is not wrong I don't care what some expert says, they are not cooking for nor feeding my husband.

Just because the author of the blog likes them cooked a particular way doesn't mean any other way is "wrong." It's not like the rest of the world hasn't figured out that if you cook them slower and at low heat they are softer. Duh. It's just different.

As long as they aren't hard and rubbery?

I cook eggs many ways but I love them over easy!

I find runny eggs disgusting. I raise my own hens. I like mine hard scrambled or hard fried. I'm not doing it wrong..I'm doing it the way I like it.
