How to scramble eggs

If you want to prepare a perfect sandwich, it's important to scramble eggs in the right way to make them fluffy and creamy. We will show you three methods easy and fast.

  • Pan: this is the best method because scrambled eggs will be very soft and creamy. You just have to whisk white, yolks and milk in a bowl. Then pour the mixture in a hot pan and go on stirring for a few minutes.
  • Microwave: it's the faster method. Crack two or more eggs into a mixing bowl, season, stir with a fork and microwave for 30 seconds and 30 more as needed.
  • Oven: stir whites and yolks, milk, salt and bake the mixture at 300°F for 15 minutes. Wait until set and then let it cool.

Which bread to use

Preparing a scrambled egg sandwich means choosing the type of bread that will make up your morning meal. Let's see the most common ones.

  • Sliced bread: is a loaf of bread sold already sliced. Toast it to make it crunchy.
  • Brioche buns: it's a soft dough enriched with butter. It's perfect to prepare hamburgers and sandwiches.
  • English muffins: is a fermented dough with a crunchy crust and rich in flavor.
  • Sourdough: perfect with cheese and eggs, it's made with wild yeast.
