Fluffy Lemon Scrambled Eggs Recipe: Adding Lemon to Eggs Is a Game Changer

Whipping lemon juice into eggs before cooking may be the secret to perfect scrambled eggs – at least according to some cooks and scientists. Want to give it a try?

This easy lemon scrambled egg recipe may not turn you into a mad scientist, but it's dang delicious. It's also perfect for Sunday Brunch, weekday breakfast or breakfast for dinner. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 7 minutes
Servings: 2 to 3


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or more to taste)
  • chopped fresh herbs, for garnish (optional)

Here's how to make it:

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the lemon juice. Whisk until blended.
  2. Melt the butter in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. When butter starts to bubble, pour in the eggs. Using a rubber spatula, start swirling the eggs around until they are slightly set, about 30 seconds.
  3. Start making up and down swirls in the other direction as the eggs cook, another 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on how you like your eggs.
  4. Remove eggs from the heat. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with fresh chopped herbs, if desired.

I made these this morning. Absolutely delicious. Loved the lemon flavor. Very refreshing. And they were so fluffy. I only did two eggs, but used the whole 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and garnished with fresh dill. My new go-to scrambled egg recipe! Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds

I made these today, too, Donna John ! I added a half teaspoon of Mediterranean herb seasoning to mine. They were delicious. I’m using more lemon next time, because I got just a hint of lemon and want more, lol! So good. And so fluffy! What a fun recipe. 😀

Bet this technique would make a fluffy omelette, too. Maybe put spinach, chopped tomatoes and parmesan in it. Or leftover salmon? :-) Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds
