Ok, so last time we talked about what you can add to scrambled eggs. This time I decided to actually do a test of it. I made two batches of scrambled eggs. One with milk and one with water – each used 1 egg and either 2 tsp of water or 2 tsp of 2%milk – nothing else. I didn’t want to add salt or pepper and mess with it, I wanted to try this as is.
They both cooked similarly and when done, the egg and water one is slightly yellower, which makes sense as the milk mixture was lighter due to the white milk.
Each looks the same and has the same springy feel and when you cut them neither feels fluffier or ‘wetter’. I tasted them and the milk one is slightly rounder in flavor with a touch of the cream flavor you would imagine while the egg and water one just tasted like an egg. One thing I did notice was that the water mix smelled of egg when it was done while the milk mix did not give off any identifiable oders.
So basically, there seems to be no significant difference. If you like the taste of eggs, use water. If not or if you want your eggs to be creamy, add milk or something else. Maybe next time I will try this with an omelet and see if it makes a difference?
Go and try it!
