Learn how to make scrambled eggs. A super easy, high-protein breakfast that kids can learn to make for themselves or to feed a crowd!
I think scrambled eggs were one of the first things I learned to make when I was little. I’ve since taught my kids the same way, even down to the way my mom taught me to cut my toast into little squares!
Once you’re confident in your child’s ability to safely use a stovetop and navigate a hot pan, let them give scrambled eggs a try. They are hard to mess up if you cook them low and slow and they can experiment with different mix-ins and varying degrees of doneness to find their perfect eggs!

FAQs about How To Make Eggs
What Can I Add to Scrambled Eggs
You can add a little bit of milk – start with 1 Tbsp per egg – to make them a little creamier. Or try 1 Tbsp water per egg to make them fluffier! The water steams a bit in the pan to help add extra fluff! To add extra protein, try mixing in some cottage cheese!
You can also try adding butter or stir in a little cheese at the end of cooking.
If you want more of an egg scramble, finely dice some vegetables like red peppers, onions, or spinach. Saute the vegetables for a few minutes before adding the eggs. You could also add some breakfast sausage or chicken sausage.
