Scrambled eggs are a commonly enjoyed dish, frequently served for breakfast. They are quick to prepare and packed with nutrition. But how can you create this dish in a way that is light, delicate, and has a perfect, velvety consistency?

On the internet, dozens of recipes can be found for preparing delicious scrambled eggs. However, we're about to share a secret that can make them even better.

It's beneficial to add a few drops of lemon juice to achieve this light structure. Surprised?

There's no need to be, as when you sprinkle egg white with juice, it prevents heavy clotting, and the dish preserves its velvety texture. However, take care not to add too much juice because it can alter the taste of the eggs.

Best served with bacon or ham and topped with chopped parsley or chives, scrambled eggs are a tasty delight. If you prefer a bit of heat in your food, spice up your breakfast eggs with Tabasco sauce or cayenne pepper. Besides, scrambled eggs pair wonderfully with tomatoes - you can prepare them in a separate pan or cook them together with the eggs.

Ingredients for Elevated Scrambled Eggs:

  • Three eggs
  • A piece of bacon or a few slices of ham
  • Lemon
  • Parsley or chives
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter
  • A slice of bread

Preparing Scrambled Eggs:

First, wash and finely chop half of the parsley or chives. Then slice the bacon or ham and fry until golden brown.

Next, melt a tablespoon of butter in a pan and crack the eggs into it. Stir them gently and add a few drops of lemon juice along with salt and pepper to taste.

Blend the cooked scrambled eggs with the bacon or ham. Serve it sprinkled with parsley and a slice of bread on the side.
