Scrambled Eggs

Ingredients
4
eggs
1/4
cup milk, half-and-half, or light cream
1/8
teaspoon salt
 
Dash ground black pepper
1
tablespoon butter or margarine

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl beat together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper with a wire whisk or fork. In a 10-inch skillet melt butter over medium heat; pour in egg mixture. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until mixture begins to set on the bottom and around the edges.
  2. With a spatula or a large spoon, lift and fold the partially cooked egg mixture so that the uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until egg is cooked through, but is still glossy and moist. Remove from heat immediately. Makes 2 servings.
