I like my scarmbled eggs dry…but now I just prefer to eat egg whites only because the yolk bugs my stomach sometimes

I like my scrambled eggs soft, which I guess is sort of similar. Just barely cooked through and nice and creamy. I have put too much water or milk in before though and it can be that way, its gross. I usually just add cheese to soak some of that up. 

We eat the same way, although I prefer my fried eggs a little bit firmer than he does so mine just stay in the pan a few minutes longer.

Ew, I’ve never heard of wet eggs before. FH and I love each other’s eggs. We make them slightly different. His is always one big mound and mine is a big old mix of eggs.

Happy to find this thread… I thought Darling Husband and I were the only ones who had vast differences in our preference of scrambled eggs.  I make mine like you, add a smidge of milk.  I consider them fluffy, not wet, I don’t have excess liquid left over on my plate but Darling Husband loves his well done, I mean brown in places and no milk.  Ughh they are so not good LOL.  He will cook them in bacon grease if we have bacon but if not they are dry and brown. Not my favorite at all.

I like them with a little milk and then cooked dry!

@californiaraisin:  Blech, I can’t stomach the idea of wet eggs either! Luckily Fiance and I usually make ours the same, except I’ll add cheddar to mine. Whenever I make them for him though I just make them with salt/pepper and the milk since he doesn’t like any ‘cheese’ except Velveeta lol.


I also really like my eggs sunnyside up style, so I can dip my toast in the yolk, but he can’t STAND sunnyside. So I make him separate eggs that are over hard 😉

I can’t eat wet scrambled eggs – the texture just leaves me feeling so disgusted. I never order them at a restaurant because invariably they’re wetter than I like. My husband doesn’t really like scrambled eggs so I don’t actually know if he has much of a preference. He does always undercook omelets though – but he’s learned to leave mine in the pan for longer than he thinks he should so I’ll be happy. Same with eggs over-easy; mine cannot have ‘wet’ parts in the white (but I love the raw yolk!) and he doesn’t care.

I make mine with soy sauce and sugar, and they are moist leaning dry. I don’t add milk (never heard of this until I came to the US) and I don’t dump water in either.

I like them just wet enough that they are not swimming.  I find I get the best results in a microwave.

I add a teeny bit of milk, but I cook them pretty dry. There’s still a TEENY bit of moisture, but it’s not too much. Future Mother-In-Law makes them wayyyyy too dry <gag> .

Fiance said he prefers mine. Every time he says he likes my cooking better, I do a little dance inside. It makes me happy, haha.

I’m just really lucky that I have a SO that thinks I’m a goddess in the kitchen when it comes to cooking. He always tells me I should become a chef, LOL!! If I cook it, he’ll happily eat it and I only cook what I like, so we’re both happy 😀

  Oh my goodness, I hear you on the pasta!!! I love it with just a bit of a bite, Fiance calls that “Crunchy”? He’s so silly. I refuse to cater to him and just cook it a tiny more than I like it, a tiny less than he likes it, and we call it even. I’m not cooking it extra time for him lol.

On steaks, we also differ somewhat. I LOVE a good medium rare-medium steak (or burger for that matter). FI’s whole family is all about well done, absolutely positively not even a speck of pink. I’ve gotten him to try medium steaks, and he admits that they tase better and have better texture, and he’ll eat them if we’re not very hungry & share an entree, but he still doesn’t order them like that himself. Boys!
