How to Make Perfect Soft Scrambled Eggs Every Time

Soft Scrambled Eggs on Toast

Hear me out: Luxury is a plate of custardy soft scrambled eggs atop a crusty piece of bread. Eggs are my favorite cheap way to eat “fancy.”

This is barely a recipe, but I think it deserves its own post. Like learning to do laundry or change the oil in your car, learning to properly cook eggs is something that seems simple but that many of us don’t do well. It all comes down to the cooking technique.

Today I’m sharing how I make my favorite soft scrambled eggs. Enjoy!

Soft Scrambled Eggs on Toast


  • 3 eggs
  • Piece of toast 
  • Flaky salt
  • Nonstick spray (or your cooking oil of choice)



  1. Crack your eggs into a bowl and whisk them together until VERY incorporated. We do not want any white spots!
  2. Spray nonstick spray in the pan (or rub it with a barely-there coating of your cooking oil of choice). Do not preheat the pan. Turn the burner to medium-low heat and immediately add the eggs to the cold pan.
  3. As the pan heats up, stir the eggs with a spatula constantly, removing the set eggs from the bottom of the pan.
  4. When the eggs are JUST DONE, still looking like they need a minute more, remove them from the heat.
  5. Add them to the top of your toast—this can be buttered but honestly, you don’t need it—and top the eggs with flaky salt. Sometimes I also add some Fly By Jing Chili Crisp (gifted) for a twist.

I use a stick blender instead of a whisk. No my more white spots.

You mentioned flakey salt, is this applied during preparation or at the end? Some chefs add salt at different intervals, you did not specify.

Soft success! Thanks for the recipe, Kate. These are the best scrambled eggs I’ve ever made—and so simple. I already owned the Material spatula, so it felt like fate. I can’t wait to cook up more for myself and some friends!
