Making Eggs – Water or Milk?

Posted on: November 19, 2008

When making scrambled eggs and omelets, which is better – water or milk?

The answer actually depends on what you’re making…

In general, milk is better for achieving a heavier, creamier texture in scrambled eggs.  Some people think low-fat milk works better than other varieties, but it’s a personal choice that has a minor effect on flavor and creaminess. Omelets, on the other hand, need water to give them their light, airy texture as the steam evaporates.

In both cases, I usually add about a teaspoon of water or milk per egg.  Experiment to find out how much you need to add to get the texture you prefer.

Contrary to popular belief, using KISS eggs has no effect on flavor of your meal; however, side effects may include increased rockability and an elongated tongue for two to six hours after ingestion.
