Lazy Girl Scrambled Eggs

Share with your friends!

Goooooood morning!

What’s better than a lazy Saturday morning? Lazy Girl Scrambled Eggs, that’s what! I’m 98.5% sure that nobody makes their eggs this way on purpose. It’s always the normal, ya know- scrambled, over easy, sunny side up, hard boiled, poached, deviled… Am I forgetting anything? If so, I apologize. I really like eggs in just about any way shape or form, to be honest. Eggs are a food that have always and will always be a staple in my life. They are kind of magical, and can become so many things! If I were a food, I’d probably be an egg.

Hmm, did it just get weird? Hope not!

Anyway, yeah, I really like eggs. I’ve been making these “Lazy Girl Scrambled Eggs” ever since I learned how to cook eggs, but over the last few years, I’ve really perfected them. There is an art to cooking eggs and I totally respect it. But since I’m a rule breaker, I made up my own way, and it’s my favorite. The thing that got me thinking about writing this post, and about making my lazy girl scrambled eggs on the regular again, was watching “Runaway Bride” a few months ago. Have you seen that movie? I won’t give out any spoilers, just in case. But it’s truly one of my favorites. It’s a total classic and Julia Roberts is such a lovely actress. Anywho- you know where I’m going with this, right? She changes her egg order for every guy she’s with, and Richard Gere figures it out. And then she figures out how she REALLY likes her eggs, and everyone lives happily ever after! It’s probably my favorite part of the movie.

Just kidding, it’s probably not, really.

Okay, It might be.

Remember that time I told you If I were a food that I’d be an egg?

Let’s just get right down to business here… because truthfully, I don’t know WHY these guys are so good, but they just are, and I love them this way.

I’m pretty sure I came up with’m accidentally, and because I was being lazy.

Give em a try, because I bet ya’ll will love’m too.

Let’s get in the kitchen!

You’ll need cooking spray. I usually use either Olive Oil cooking spray, or Butter cooking spray.

You’ll also need to grab your favorite non stick pan, kosher salt, and some eggs. You can adjust how many eggs ya want according to how many you need. You’ll just need to use a few extra pinches of salt and a lil more cooking spray the more eggs you make. I usually make three because it never fails that every time I make myself eggs and I ask Pepper, “sweets, do you want any eggs?” she says, “NO” and then, I sit down and she starts eating my eggs. So I’ve learned to always make an extra egg, because my child is indecisive, and I don’t like to share my food.

(No charge for these amazing parenting tips.)

You’ll need a rubber spatula. You can also use a regular ol’ spatula, but I thought I’d show you the adorable new spatula set I got for me and Pepper the other day at Target. I have 20 other rubber spatulas, so I didn’t need these in any way, shape, or form, but they are soo cute and my heart melted when I saw them! I’m also using them for a photo on this here blog. So I needed them because it was work related, and now I feel justified. The end.

But, the little one says sous chef! 

First things first, you need to keep your heat low. Low and slow is the key to these.

Let the pan heat for a minute or two, and then spray your nonstick pan with a few hefty sprays of cooking spray.

Break your eggs and then add’m to the pan. See how the whites are setting just a bit? Good.

Now take the spatula and just break the yolks and kind of swirl them in with the whites.

Now, sprinkle’m with a few pinches of kosher salt, and then spray the top of’m with a few more sprays of cooking spray.  Also, don’t touch’m! Let them be, and set up a little before moving them around in the pan. I think the key to the perfect eggs is just kind of slightly moving them around in the pan.

When they start to cook, there’s not any serious technique for the mixing- just move your spatula from side to side, allow the eggs to kind of move around and fill in behind it, and continue cooking’m low and slow.

When the eggs are done, but still have kind of a “gooey-ish” look (Is that the right word? I hope that doesn’t sound gross because it’s not, These are delicious!), turn off the heat and just let them sit in the pan for the time it takes you to take out a plate and get some fruit or toast ready. The residual heat from the pan should finish cooking them, and they will be perrrfection.

My mood determines how I eat them. But no matter my mood, it almost always goes to: Lazy Girl Scrambled Eggs on some grilled bread.

How to grill bread:

  1. Spray favorite bread with some olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Lay bread cooking spray side down on a hot grill pan.
  3. Grill for a couple of minutes over medium heat until you have some grill marks.
  4. You’re done. 

I like to keep it simple and just add a few pinches of cheese.

This might look like somethin’ special, but I promise you that while cooking and photographing these the other morning, I had twelve other things going on. They are easy peasy, incredibly delicious, quick, and really only require two dishes, which makes me happy to start the day off like that. Lazy Girl Scrambled Eggs are eeeeeveeerrrryyything.

Also, I know I have some pretty awesome men who read this ol’ blog and you’re probably not going to make these because of the name. Call’m “Lazy Dude Scrambeled Eggs”, okay? Problem solved. I wouldn’t forget about y’all.

Such a good breakfast and it’s ready in about 5 minutes!

Okay, I’ve got two very important questions:

  1. How do you like your eggs?
  2. If you were a food what would you be?

Make these and be happy!

With love from my kitchen to yours,

    I’ve been making my kids eggs like this for years 🙂 They called them “mixed up eggs”.

    Your recipes are my favorite!! I always come to your site when I’m planning meals!!! I love your lazy girl eggs but what pan do you use?? Eggs always stick terribly to my pans so I’m on the search for the perfect egg pan. Please help!

    1. Hi Stacia! I almost always, ALWAYS use my Circulon small frying pan, but sometimes use the copper one (like in the photos of this recipe) the copper one was from target a year or two ago and I believe it was a “aeysha”. Either one works well for me, but the copper one isn’t doing so well these days. Are you sure your non stick pan still has a nice non stick coating? Sometimes after years of wear it doesn’t work as well especially if it’s been put in the dishwasher. I only say that because I’ve ruined a couple pans putting them in the dishwasher not thinking twice. I hope that helps! I’m so happy you enjoy the recipes.

        Yeah, they are definitely old enough to have lost their coating. But they were never great to begin with. The Circulon look promising! That’s the next brand I’ll try! Thanks so much!!!

  3. First time to see your blog. I see you and I have something in common besides the way every human wears their pants. I too like lazy eggs I want the, semi loose and creamy as they finish while they wait for my fork. I am a senior Weight Watcher with a fair amount of culinary knowledge but prefer comfort food. I look forward to following you and wish you and Miss Pepper the best of everything..

  4. Perfect! This is just how I like my eggs. I have become very picky on how they are fixed and I like them just set…not overcooked and rubbery. Is that a word??? When they are just set they are so nice and creamy and yummy!!!!! I’m coming to your house and we can do breakfast!

    1. I love just french bread from any bakery or store bakery. I cut slices and weigh out to get my serving size

  5. This is how I always make my scrambled eggs and Ive been making them like that quite a long time now. Its kind of a no brainer to do it this way.

    1. I don’t know if it’s a no brainer, but it’s definitely delicious! I’ve been making them the same for years as well. YUM!

  6. I made these immediately after reading this post on IG! I added some cheese at the very end and let it get all melty in the pan. I’m also currently obsessed with grilled bread. Toaster is being retired. Thank you for the inspiration!

    1. I am so happy you enjoyed them! I go through phases where this is ALL I eat for breakfast for months and I’m in that phase right now. And I agree, my toaster is probably so lonely sitting on the counter. I made some toast the other day just because I felt kinda bad for it. Haha!
