  The 1 Thing You Should Try Adding to Your Scrambled Eggs Some people add milk to their scrambled eggs, some prefer heavy cream, and some scramble them in bacon fat. So how does it taste in scrambled eggs? It's interesting, but in a good way - I totally approve. I recommend adding 1/4 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce per two eggs and whisking everything together well before cooking your eggs low and slow.
