Eggs have remarkable health benefits. The white and yolk are very rich in nutrients. Egg white contains proteins, minerals, and vitamins while the yolk also contains cholesterol, essential fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins. The egg symbolizes new life, fertility, and rebirth in many cultures. It is also an all round and vital ingredient for cooking. I like eating eggs and likewise all my siblings. Whenever, am stuck with how to make the best eggs for breakfast, scrambled eggs come to mind. There is nothing as good as waking up to the aroma of scrambled eggs and seeing a plate filled with such goodness in the morning.
In addition to that, scrambled eggs are one of the ways to make the best eggs for breakfast. It is very simple and quick to prepare and can be enjoyed with boiled yam, bread, potatoes, plantains or anything that works for you. In preparing this simple side dish, eggs take the centre stage and then your whisk. The whisk is the secret to whipping up fluffy goodness. You add in air by whisking your eggs thereby making it soft, light and fluffy. Make sure to whip the yolk and whites together for even combination.
THIS IS HOW TO MAKE THE BEST EGGS FOR BREAKFAST
Making this recipe is not difficult. Just a bit of salt and pepper for taste, a small butter to cook, and farm fresh eggs is all you need for a perfect breakfast. Although I prefer mine to be plain and fluffy, you can adjust your recipe to include vegetables (optional). I also use 4 eggs for my standard medium-sized skillet/frying pan. This can vary depending on the size of your skillet. Use a non-stick skillet or a strong iron pan for best results.
