Scrambled Eggs

1 Serving / 5 Minutes

Ingredients
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

Directions
1. Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a bowl with a wire whisk or fork.
2. Place oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for 60–90 seconds. A drop of water should sizzle in the pan when hot enough.
3. Pour in eggs and reduce heat to low. As eggs begin to set, gently move a spatula around the pan to form large, soft curds. Cook until eggs are no longer runny but not dry.

Tip: Whenever you work with a nonstick pan, as we recommend for all three of these dishes, make sure to use a heat-resistant silicone, plastic, or rubber spatula. Metal utensils can damage the pan’s nonstick coating.

Fried Eggs

1 Serving / 5–7 Minutes

Ingredients
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 eggs
salt and pepper

Directions
1. Place oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for 60–90 seconds. A drop of water should sizzle in the pan when hot enough.
2. Crack one egg into a small bowl, then slide egg into the pan. Repeat with other egg.
3. Let eggs cook for 3 minutes, then cover for 30 seconds to cook whites. For runny yolks, remove eggs immediately. For set yolks, turn off burner and leave in covered pan for 1–2 minutes more.
