  1. In a cup or small bowl, whisk together the eggs, mayonnaise and water using a fork. Melt margarine in a skillet over low heat. Pour in the eggs, and stir constantly as they cook. Remove the eggs to a plate when they are set, but still moist. Do not over cook. Never add salt or pepper until eggs are on plate, but these are also good without.

Hmmm. Tastes no different from the scrambled eggs I've always made that don't have mayonnaise in them. I can't imagine what mayonnaise adds that makes them better, it's just oil and more egg. Perhaps it's the beating to get the mayonnaise incorporated or the gentle cooking the recipe advises. Adding mayo to scrambled eggs made me feel weirdly icky for some unexplainable reason and since I couldn't detect any benefit from it, I won't try it again. It wasn't bad, just not better.

Moist, glossy, and absolutely delicious. It works best to whisk the mayo and water together first, then whisk in the eggs. I use Kraft mayo and follow the recipe exactly, but increase it for larger amounts. HINT: The "salad dressing" option in this recipe is referring to Miracle Whip (or the like), NOT prepared dressings like Ranch or Italian. HINT #2: For best results, I recommend using real mayo, not Miracle Whip.



As a person who does not like eggs, I was excited to try these with such glowing reviews. I tried not to overcook them having to put them back in the pan twice and they still came out mushy and grainy. I used Hellmans. Ketchup couldn't even save them.
