A celebrity chef has revealed some of the most common mistakes in making scrambled egg perfection – and they might surprise you.
Dan Churchill stated that the most common things ups are heating the pan too quickly and cooking eggs to perfection on a stovetop. This leaves the eggs dry and chewy as they will continue to cook in residual heat.
The host of Epic Table podcast, John McMahon, says that you shouldn’t over-stir eggs if you want to make ‘beautifully smooth layers’.
Instead, he suggests moving the spatula toward you and tilting your pan back to allow the eggs to fall onto the prepared surface.

The host of Epic Table podcast (pictured), says the two most common things that can go wrong are over-stirring the eggs and having the pan too heated.
This tip is contrary the advice of Robbie Bell, top chef and author of The Perfect Scramble. Mix the mixture well.
Heston Blumenthal was a culinary genius who taught Mr. Bell the secrets of cooking. He said that the trick is to keep your eyes open and stir the eggs until you get soft, silky curds.
The optimum temperature is something that both chefs can agree on.
Rather than pouring eggs onto a sizzling hot pan, Mr Churchill recommends keeping it on a medium heat so you can control cooking them evenly.
He wrote on Instagram, “Remember that eggs still cook with residual heat once you turn it off the heat,”
How to make scrambled eggs perfect
1. Do not heat the pan too much. Instead, heat it to medium heat.
2. Avoid over-stirring. Instead, slide spatula toward you and tilt pan inwards so that wet eggs can fall onto the cooked.
3. Avoid overcooking eggs on a pan. They will continue to cook with residual heat.
