*Do Not over beat the eggs-Too much beating can make the eggs tough. At the same time, no one wants those big white streaks, so many tend to get out the wire whisk and go to town on these babies. Instead, beat the eggs with a fork just until they come together and the bubbles are still large.
*Season Before Cooking- The eggs should have the salt, pepper and whatever else in them before they ever hit the pan. This flavors everything perfectly and cooks into the eggs rather than just a salty layer.
*Add Milk-Milk adds a fluffiness and a little more flavor to the eggs. The eggs also end up a little softer, and the eggs have bigger curds.
*Use a Non-Stick Pan- Eggs stick so easily that even in an oiled pan you can make the eggs stick to the pan and create a little crispness to the eggs. A non-stick pan allows you to lift and scramble the eggs and keep them soft and pillow like.
*Heat low and slow or high and quick-Heating is very important with eggs. The best way to cook them is high heat and to quickly move the eggs around. This means you cannot throw them in and walk away. 2-3 eggs should only take about 30-40 seconds. If you absolutely have to be doing other things, avoid the medium setting and just take it down to low. Let the eggs slowly cook and keep going back to stir occasionally. Again, this is not the preferred method, but if necessary it’s better than medium heat.
**Personally I think that adding a little milk truly is one of the best tips to have great eggs, but cooking them quickly over high heat is pretty high up there.
Are Eggs Good For You?

Why Are Scrambled Eggs Rubbery?
Leaving the scrambled eggs on the heat too long will result in dry, tough, rubbery eggs.
Scrambled eggs should be thoroughly cooked, but don’t leave them on the heat longer than necessary.
Can You Make Scrambled Eggs With Water?
If you like fluffier scrambled eggs, add 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of water per egg.
If you prefer creamy eggs, add 1 tablespoon of milk for each egg.
