Perfect scrambled eggs!

Michael made scrambled eggs this morning. My 10 yr old is very proficient in the kitchen just like his dad when he was that age. Chris and Katie do an awesome job also.. and can hold their own in the kitchen. Morgan prefers cold cereal and Chocolate Milk... Chocolate anything actually... She's not into eggs at all. Michael likes cracking the eggs and I think he enjoys this more than eating them. I'm working on getting him to crack two at a time one in each hand like Dad did back in his Chef days. Special thanks to Grams for the super cool and handy spatula from LeCreuset! It's the bomb and she got it for me last July 4th when we were in Hilton Head. It's the medium silicon spatula with a wooden handle.

Here is the recipe. 6 eggs cracked and scrambled with a whisk. Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste (Small dash of each). Really whip the eggs until you get a frothy foam. This will make them light and fluffy. If you don't have a whisk use a dinner fork.Place a saute pan on medium heat like a six.. I prefer to get the hot plate hot on high then back off to 6 and then place the pan on the hot plate and let it absorb heat for about 3 minutes. Then place a small amount of butter or oil or pam spray in the pan and while whisking the eggs in your mixing bowl.. again.. pour them into the pan. You should hear a slight singe sound as the eggs hit the pan if the temp is right. Then use a spatula to constantly stir the eggs to keep them from scorching. We then add a hand full of shredded cheddar cheese and a hand full or shredded mozzarella cheese. Stir till no longer wet. Serve right away. Yum! Great with a little salsa or salsa verde sauce also.

I have been doing a lot of cooking from scratch this week and some of the recipes will appear later in my posts. Have a fun Sunday with your Kids!
