This is a simple recipe for scrambled eggs.

Approximate Cooking Time: 5-10 minutes

Ingredients

    * Eggs
    * Butter, margarine, oil or cooking spray (enough to coat pan)
    * Salt and pepper to taste

The additional ingredient possibilities are virtually limitless. It is common to add a 
small amount of cream, milk or water (apprx 1/2 teaspoon per egg) to the egg mixture 
before cooking (will make eggs fluffier). Cheese is also popular, and should be added 
near the end of cooking. Other ingredients to try include: ham, mushrooms, onions, 
peppers, sausage, tomatoes, olives, bacon, shaved truffles, smoked turkey, spinach, 
brocoli, tarragon, chives, parsely and asparagus. Dijon mustard is also good mixed into 
the egg mixture prior to cooking.

Procedure 1

   1. Heat pan (a non-stick or well seasoned cast iron is preferable) to medium and add 
enough butter, oil, or cooking spray to coat bottom
   2. Crack desired number of eggs into a bowl.
   3. Add milk or water to eggs, if desired (apprx. 1/2 teaspoon per egg)
   4. Season with salt and pepper to taste (other herbs and spices may be used as well)
   5. Beat eggs gently with fork or whisk for 15-20 seconds. It is not neccessary to 
make a completely uniform mixture.
   6. Add egg mixture to heated, greased pan.
   7. With a spatuala or spoon (avoid metal tools if using teflon pan) continuously 
gently scrape cooked egg from pan. The length of time and the frequency with which you 
scrape will determine the consistency of the eggs and is a matter of personal 
preference. The time will vary from 30 seconds to 3 or more minutes depending on number 
and type of eggs, size and heat of pan, and personal preference.

Procedure 1b - Microwave

To cook in microwave, grease bowl before cracking one to two eggs into bowl. Mix 
gently. Microwave on high for 40 seconds to 2 minutes. Actual cooking time will vary. A 
general rule of thumb is to watch eggs for entire time and stop microwave when entire 
mixture has risen somewhat. If it explodes, you waited too long. Egg(s) will come out 
in shape of the bowl; depending on the size of the bowl, this method is very useful for 
making an appropriate size egg patty for a sandwhich.

Procedure 2

   1. Heat a non-stick pan w/ the bottom covered in Canola Oil to Med. settings.
   2. Crack eggs and place inside pan.
   3. Immediately begin mixing while lightly sprinkling salt for 5 seconds.
   4. Continue mixing until eggs are thoroughly scrambled and mixed.
   5. Turn off heat and wait 1 minute for eggs to cool.
