Don't say you prefer that until you've tried these methods, hence the title of the thread. Give it a shot, and see. While you still may prefer the cast iron method, you'll realize that this is something totally different.

I tried something similar a while back from an article on latimes.com, and though the finished product was the silkiest and most luxuriously textured eggs I've ever eaten, it took literally 20-30 minutes of constant stirring (I started with fridge-cold eggs=mistake). If anyone's interested to try it's here: linky
I may try the above-linked once again with room-temp eggs, but Alton's gave great results for minimum hassle. My new go-to scramble! Thanks, Salami.
Bacon grease for my eggs.
I'll add my favorites later.
no wonder I let my frittatas cook too long.
I didn't watch either of the videos but we learned (apparently) the English way of making scrambled eggs. The idea is they become more creamy and fluffy.
Take a sauce pan and fill the bottom with a spot of milk (fill it up along the very bottom - don't overdo it). Half a pat of butter then pour in the scrambled eggs and cook to your choice.
Difference is adding liquid, sauce pan and no frying.
at what heat?

I've been making these since I was a kid.
