  1. HEAT oven to 350°F. BEAT eggs, milk, salt and pepper in large bowl until blended.

  2. POUR egg mixture into lightly greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. BAKE in 350°F oven until eggs begin to set, about 7 minutes. GENTLY PULL the eggs completely across the bottom and sides of pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds.

  3. CONTINUE baking. REPEAT pulling eggs with turner a few more times until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, 12 to 15 minutes. REMOVE from oven. SERVE immediately.

Insider Info

  • For creamier oven scrambled eggs, try adding small cubes of cream cheese or a dollop of ricotta or cottage cheese before cooking. Add flavor with pesto, salsa or fresh herbs.
  • Don’t overcook. The heat retained in the pan will continue to cook and firm up the eggs after pan is removed from oven.
  • How long should you beat? It’s a matter of preference. Light beating produces more dense scrambled eggs. Vigorous beating aerates the eggs, resulting in lighter fluffier curds.
