Scrambled eggs are one of the first foods that many home cooks learn to make since they are so simple to make.
As your culinary talents have improved, you've probably tried several scrambled egg hacks and ways to get fluffy-not-flat eggs.
But there's one thing that can completely change the game. And it's one that you probably already have in your kitchen.
Lemon juice may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of perfect scrambled eggs, but there is a reason why it works.
Adding a splash of lemon juice when whisking the eggs alters the protein-rich dish's texture in a subtle way, as explained by Well + Good.
It creates air pockets in the eggs, adds Happy Egg, which contributes to a more cloud-like, fluffy final product, which is what you want for the ultimate scrambled eggs.
According to Wonder How To, lemon juice produces salivation and has a similar effect on the taste buds as salt, enhancing the other flavors in the dish.
MyRecipes suggests a half-teaspoon for every two to three scrambled eggs; adjust as desired.
