Getting the perfect scrambled eggs just right for your morning piece of toast takes patience, a light hand, and plenty of butter. However, iconic singer Dolly Parton believes there’s one more ingredient needed to get those eggs super fluffy.
Our fave country crooner has revealed that she has an easy hack for getting her scrambled eggs to fluff up to perfection, and it’s something everyone can try out at home.
In an interview with Insider, Dolly let slip that she uses a couple of drops of ice cold water while her eggs are cooking to get them just right.
In the video shot with the US website, Dolly said: “Somebody told me this once and it works. When you crack your eggs in the bowl, say if you’re going to scramble them, use ice water. Put a few drops of ice water as you’re cooking them and that makes them fluffier — it really does!”
Watery eggs? Doesn’t sound great, does it.
Apparently Dolly is quite the expert when it comes to traditional Southern American cooking, so we had to give this one a try to see if it lives up to Dolly’s high praise.
The result? It actually works! Although it looks a bit weird and feels completely odd to be adding ice cold water to your nice creamy eggs, it all soon mixes up together and results in some damn fluffy eggs.
This method probably works well because the water gently heats up and steams the eggs as they scramble, resulting in all that gorgeous fluffiness.
