How to Make Soft Scrambled Eggs
There are only a few simple steps that you need to take until you’ll have a fork full of eggs in your mouth. Follow the directions as we write them and don’t ignore the tips + tricks section!
WHISK those Eggs + Milk
Place your eggs and milk into a bowl and whisk both of the ingredients together until combined.
here’s a tip
Why whisk your eggs before you put them in the pan? Whisking your eggs together before pouring into your skillet ensures the egg whites and yolks are perfectly combined before cooking at all.
Preheat the Pan Before Cooking + Add olive oil
Before adding your eggs to the pan you want to preheat the pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. When the olive oil is fragrant, you add your scrambled eggs.
Fold Eggs + Be Patient
One you add the eggs to the pan, allow eggs to partially set around the edges of the pan, and then fold and push the eggs toward the center of the pan as they cook.
Any spatula will work, but we love using a wooden or rubber spatula /silicone spatula for scrambled eggs as neither will scratch your non stick pan, and won’t stick to your eggs!
Continue folding eggs without fully flipping for 2-3 minutes. Why? Because this will keep larger chunks (they should resemble large soft curds!) of the eggs together as well as maintain that fluffy texture we’re looking for in scrambled eggs!
Add the Goat Cheese
Add the goat cheese to your skillet, and continue to fold eggs until fully cooked. This will allow the goat cheese to melt and fully mix into your eggs.
tips for the BEST soft scrambled eggs
Cook eggs low and slow — higher temperatures will cook your eggs too quickly, and result in flatter scrambled eggs with some browning.
Fold, fold, repeat — keep folding your eggs over on each other in the pan while cooking to not only maintain larger chunks of scrambled eggs (they should resemble large soft curds!), but to also allow oxygen to infuse the scrambled eggs and give them that fluffy texture you’ll love.

What Milk Can You Use for Scrambled Eggs?
We recommend any dairy milk for these scrambled eggs! The higher the fat in the milk you choose, the creamier your eggs will be.
Non-dairy alternatives can give scrambled eggs an interesting taste depending on what variety you’re using, so we recommend skipping the milk and subbing water before using a non-dairy milk alternative.
What Cheese Can You Use for Scrambled Eggs?
Yes, you can use any cheese that you would like. We love using soft cheese for scrambled eggs because it melts so well within the eggs. Goat cheese and cream cheese are our go-tos, but truly any cheese will work.
