Why add water to eggs?
Have you ever wondered why at school or at a hotel buffet the scrambled eggs always seem really watery? They add a ton of water to their eggs to actually stretch them out, making a few eggs feel like a lot. This helps with feeding tons of children on a tight budget. Now I don’t add as much water as the schools or hotels with the breakfast buffets do, but I still like to add a little water or milk to give it that fluffy cloud texture.
