How to Make Fluffy Eggs

Call me a late bloomer but it's only been recently that I went to watch a movie by myself.  I don't know why it took me this long, but I tell  you, it was liberating.  Liberating in the sense that I get to pick what I want to watch... sit where I want to sit and do the silliest things like sprinkle hot sauce and add chocolate m&ms in my popcorn.  I didn't have to think of how another person would feel seeing my popcorn flavor!

The movie that I watched was Morning Glory... shhh yeah I know, it's one of those movies. In fact the movie was very predictable.  But sometimes I love movies that don't require for me to think nor get myself scared... oh well that's why there are chic flicks... and that's why they make movies like this for people like me.

Although this happened a few months ago, I am reminded of the movie Morning Glory because of my husband's question this morning while I was making breakfast.  He asked me how do you make fluffy eggs just like in the restaurants.  And the answer I could give him was from Harrison Ford's line in the movie.  He said that the secret to a fluffy egg dish is a hot pan. Indeed, it's that simple, and as I made this almost perfect egg texture my husband craves for... let me share with you one of my family's weekend breakfast favorites, what we call Beachside Skillet.

Beachside Skillet
5 eggs. beaten (in a bowl) with a small amount of milk
1 pack of sausage, fried and sliced
salt and pepper to taste
strips of bell pepper
1 medium tomato, sliced
1/2 medium onions, sliced
1 potato, boiled and sliced (I actually used potatoes from a left-over dish)
a slice of butter

On a hot pan (with a little cooking oil)  mix together onions, tomatoes, pepper and sausage slices.  Created a space in the middle, where you will pour the beaten eggs.  Wait for a few minutes until the egg starts to form.  Fold the eggs (do not stir), slide and fold to cook.
When the egg is not runny, take it off the pan just to get the right texture and fluffiness, add butter if desired... Season with salt and pepper...

It's that simple and for sure, your day will get off to a great start, as you started with this oh so perfect fluffy egg skillet... enjoy!


  1. These eggs with all the bell pepper and sausages and potatoes are looking yum for the breakfast! So the secret is a hot pan!!! How simple, yet so many people do not know this! Thanks, dear!

  2. I'd like this Morning Glory breakfast right now, Malou! :)

  3. Malou-egg dishes are my passion! I make them so many different ways...just this moment, I'm making a batch of egg salad with half a dozen leftover eggs, before they expire.
    Love your combo of the delicious sausage, mushrooms, bell peppers, and all the other ingredients with a couple slices of whole wheat toast.
    So next beach lunch project, right here on the beach where I live.
    Thanks for the tip, and for sharing, my friend!

  4. Malou,what a simple, yet terrific idea with eggs! I love your photos, too! Thanks for sharing! This will go under my file of "great brunch ideas" !

  5. Can I drop by your house one morning have a plate of those eggs with all the goodies that you added! Don't worry, you guys can go back to sleep while I'm eating, I'll clean up too before I leave. :) Have a wonderful weekend Malou!


  6. Your eggs look amazing! I love this kind of breakfast. All those wonderful flavors mixed with fluffy eggs. No wonder your husband loved them!

  7. Kudos to you for going to the movies on your own. Your eggs look great,I think that bell pepper sets the taste - my husband would love them (for me without the sausage though ...for some reason I just can't digest sausage).

  8. I would love to have these eggs for my breakfast, looks very delicious.

  9. I'm coming over for breakfast right now!! Eggs look fantastic.

    P.S - Still haven't gone to watch a movie alone. Your post urges me to give it a try.
