Growing up, my dad always made the best scrambled eggs. It was a Sunday morning ritual in our house – he usually made ‘bacon scrambled’ where he’d fry up little bits of bacon first, then fold in deliciously fluffy eggs for the perfect breakfast on toast.

While I learned to make really good eggs from my dad, I’ve updated the recipe to skip the bacon and salt. I’ve tried a whole bunch of herbs and spices in my scrambled eggs, and wanted to share the simple low sodium version we make on the weekends!

  • Eggs – eggs do naturally contain about 65mg of sodium per one large egg.
  • Unsalted Butter  – we only use unsalted butter in all our recipes, it’s a great way to cut down on your salt & sodium intake with a simple swap.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives a really nice flavor to these eggs!
  • Water – the secret to fluffy eggs, I swear by using water over milk.
  • Red Chili Flakes: for a little heat! I like to add a few shakes to this recipe to give this dish a nice complex depth of flavor without the salt.
  • Tellicherry Peppercorns: It’s amazing the flavor difference you can get with really good tellicherry black pepper.  Peppercorns are about the same price is buying pre-ground, and will add way more flavor to your recipes.
  • Green Onions – I like to add some fresh green onions or scallions for major flavor!

How Do I Make These Scrambled Eggs without Salt?

It’s simple!  This recipe uses 6 eggs as the base, so if you use more or less eggs, make sure to scale the ingredients up or down to match.
  1. In a large pan, heat the unsalted butter over low heat until the bottom of the pan is coated and butter has melted
  2. In a bowl, add the eggs, sesame oil, water, chili flakes, and pepper. Beat together until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. Pour the eggs into the pan, cooking over very low heat.  LOW AND SLOW is the rule for scrambled eggs in our house, it helps to cook the eggs evenly.
  4. Every few minutes scrape the cooked eggs off the bottom of the pan with a spatula and fold into the pan. Repeat cooking for about 10 minutes until eggs are firm and cooked, no longer runny.
  5. Plate eggs over toast of choice, and add toppings: I used fresh chopped scallions, crushed red pepper flakes, and sesame seeds – but use your favorite fresh vegetables or herbs.  Enjoy!
