2 large eggs

1 tablespoon whole milk

1/2 tablespoon butter

1/8 teaspoon salt

Fresh cracked pepper

Mix-ins, like leftover meat, cooked vegetables, cheese, or herbs


Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat.

Crack two eggs into a small mixing bowl. Add milk and salt. Aggressively whisk the mixture until it is uniform in color, texture, and slightly foamy. You want the whites and yolks fully combined.

Add the eggs to hot skillet and immediately reduce the heat to medium low. Use a rubber spatula to push the eggs from one end of the skillet to the other. Continue doing this, gently and slowly, always pushing the cooked eggs from the bottom of the skillet and allowing the uncooked egg to take its place. When the eggs are mostly cooked, but look fairly wet with what looks like thick liquidy egg around the curds, slowly fold the eggs into itself one or two times. You want to bring the eggs together, kind of like a loose ball of dough. Add any cheese, meat or vegetables at this time.

Remove eggs from pan when the eggs are set but still glisten with moisture, and transfer to a plate. Finish with freshly cracked pepper. Garnish with fresh herbs, if using.
