TIP OF THE DAY: Best Scrambled Eggs

What’s the secret to making the best scrambled eggs? Our mom added milk; other people use water or club soda.

According to super chef Wylie Dufresne of WD-50 in New York City, the magic comes from cream cheese. Here’s his recipe:


Ingredients Per Serving

  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon cream cheese
    Optional Additions

  • Minced fresh chives
  • Quartered/halved cherry tomatoes and fresh basil

    1. SEASON eggs with salt and pepper; whisk to scramble.

    2. HEAT small pan; when hot, add butter, letting it foam.

    3. ADD eggs, wait 30 seconds and remove pan from heat.

    4. ADD cream cheese and scramble.

    You can serve your scrambled eggs on a plate, with a side of toast, or try one of these variations:

  • On an English muffin
  • In a pita pocket
  • As a croissandwich
  • On a bagel, with or without cream cheese and smoked salmon
  • With guacamole or chunky avocado (see photo)
