  1. Crack eggs into a separate bowl first. This is helpful in case you accidentally get eggshell in the mix. If eggshell does get into the bowl take large eggshell and scoop it out.

2. Mix/scramble the eggs in the bowl using a whisk or a fork until mixture is even. Heat the pan to low heat. Low heat will make it easier not to overcook or burn the eggs.

3. Place butter in the pan. Butter is the best way to grease your pan for eggs because eggs are naturally very sticky due to their high protein content.
