Scrambled eggs with mayonnaise is an easy way to make perfect creamy scrambled eggs! These scrambled eggs are rich, luxurious, and effortless.
Scrambled eggs with mayonnaise is one of those things that you don’t know you were missing your whole life until you discover it.
Mayonnaise is actually a very easy way to create richer, fluffier eggs.
In fact, best foods advertised a recipe in 1972 claiming that using 1 tablespoon of their mayonnaise used to make scrambled eggs gave it a creamy texture.
Of course, the more fat you add to your eggs (whether it’s oil, butter, or mayonnaise), the richer and tastier they’re going to be. I’m pretty sure I once saw my aunt put something like a quarter of a cup of oil into her perfect scrambled eggs!
Some people don’t like mayonnaise, and mayonnaise may seem like an odd thing to put in scrambled eggs. However, since mayonnaise is mostly just eggs and oil, it actually makes perfect sense.
While these scrambled eggs are made with mayonnaise, they do not have have a strong mayonnaise flavor. They do, on the other hand, taste rich and luxurious!
Also, these eggs happen to be dairy free since they are made without milk and without butter.

An egg that floats to the top is likely spoiled.
