Step 1

Crack eggs and pour into a large bowl. Add milk, cream or water.

Step 2

In the meantime, add butter to a nonstick pan or cast iron skillet over low to medium heat to melt. Swirl melted butter around pan to ensure bottom and sides are well-coated and heat until the butter shimmers, about 3 - 5 minutes, making sure that the pan is well-heated.

Step 3

Whisk eggs vigorously until the eggs become a golden color and are well-combined. Air bubbles will begin to show in your egg mixture if you have whipped in plenty of air. Immediately pour eggs into prepared skillet and cook slowly.

Step 4

Do not stir the eggs until the sides have begun to turn a lighter shade than the rest of the eggs and have begun to gently pull away from the buttered edges of the pan. Using a silicon spatula or a wooden spoon, gently pull the eggs toward the center of the skillet, bringing large curds with you as you do so. Where you pulled the eggs toward the center will quickly fill with uncooked egg mixture.

Step 5

Continue to pull the curds toward the center of the entire skillet and gently stir the eggs until there is no more visible uncooked eggs. Stir eggs gently and remove from heat. Be sure not to leave eggs on the heat too long as they can quickly overcook and become dry and rubbery.

Step 6

Salt and pepper eggs to taste and serve warm.
