Instructions: For proper results, eggs should be not below room temperature. To achieve more fluffiness, beaten whites may be added to whole eggs in the proportion of 1 additional white to 3 whole eggs. Have ready by the time the butter is hot and add the following mixture, beaten with fork until eggs are well mixed:

  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons cream or milk (if desired)
  • Cheese, ham or other food-have it cut, sliced or chopped



  1. Beat all ingredients above with fork until eggs are well mixed:
  2. Melt 1 to 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over low heat.
  3. As the eggs heat through, increase heat to medium-low.
  4. Push the eggs gently in the skillet until they have thickened but are still soft.
