Stovetop

Step 1

Heat a small amount of butter or oil in a frying pan over medium heat, then add cold scrambled eggs.

Step 2

Stir the eggs frequently with a wooden spoon. If you notice liquid leaking from the eggs, pour it out.

Step 3

Once they're hot, remove the eggs from the heat and serve immediately.

Microwave

Step 1

Place cold scrambled eggs into a microwave-safe bowl and cover loosely with plastic wrap.

Step 2

Microwave the eggs on high for 15 to 20 seconds, then remove from the microwave and stir with a fork. Pour off any excess liquid.

Step 3

Return the eggs to the microwave for another 15 to 20 seconds on high, then stir and pour off the liquid again. Repeat until the eggs are hot. Serve immediately.
