The best scrambled eggs recipe in the world - "Huevos al vapor"

What you learn here!

Welcome to our cooking show!

We're here to present to you the best and most creative scrambled eggs in the world. In Spain, it's known as "Huevos al Vapor," which translates to "steaming eggs."

Making scrambled eggs is not rocket science, but to create the best scrambled eggs in the world, it requires the right tricks. So, grab your pitcher, and let's get started with the scrambled eggs on the portafilter!

What you need


  • Pitcher

  • Steam wand of the portafilter machine

  • Cutting board

  • Knife


  • Chives
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Nutmeg
  • Milk
  • Toast - for serving

Let's get started with the scrambled eggs!

We begin with the slices of toast, placing them on top of the machine to lightly brown and make them crispy. And now, let's start with the scrambled eggs in the pitcher:

First, we'll preheat our pitcher with hot water. Then give it a swirl so that the entire pitcher is preheated. Now add some butter to the pitcher and swirl well again to distribute the butter. This prevents the eggs from sticking later!

Next, we add three eggs directly to the pitcher. Add salt, pepper, and for that special touch, a pinch of nutmeg. Whisk everything together until you have a homogeneous mixture with bubbles forming. As a secret tip for a really fluffy result, add a splash of milk now and whisk again.

Now, heat the machine to 130°C. Give the steam wand a quick blow to release any condensation.

We start with the scrambled eggs in the pulling phase. This introduces air into the eggs, creating a fluffy consistency. Then, move to the rolling phase where you immerse the steam wand deeper to ensure thorough stirring. The eggs are ready when steam rises, and the fluffy mixture in the pitcher no longer moves. Thanks to the butter, nothing sticks in the pitcher!

Now just plate it up! Finely chop chives, garnish as desired with tomatoes, and there you have it - Huevos al vapor!

Now you've not only made the best scrambled eggs in the world super quickly but also in a fun way!

Enjoy your meal!

How many eggs do I need for scramled egg for one person?

If you're preparing scrambled eggs as a full meal, you can plan for 2-3 eggs per person, depending on the accompanying side dishes. If the scrambled eggs are merely a complement to breakfast or brunch, around 1 egg per person should be sufficient.

Why do we put milk into the scrambled eggs?

The added milk makes the scrambled eggs juicier. As an alternative, you can also incorporate cream.

Which spices to use for scrambled eggs?

We season our scrambled eggs classically with salt and pepper, and add a pinch of nutmeg for a special touch. Importantly, incorporate the spices while whisking the eggs so that the flavors can unfold throughout the scrambled eggs.

On which temperature should i cook scrambled egg?

Since we're working with the steam wand of the portafilter machine, we first briefly warm up the pitcher. After that, we add some butter and let it melt. Now, let's get to the scrambled eggs! Preheat the steam temperature to 130°C, then turn the steam wand to full power and heat the eggs, stirring until they reach a fluffy consistency.
