Add sea salt and black pepper to taste.
Unsalted butter helps the eggs cook and adds a buttery flavor. For dairy-free, use olive oil.

How to Make
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until well combined. Whisk vigorously to incorporate air into the mixture.
Then, heat a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat and add the butter. Allow it to melt and coat the bottom of the skillet evenly.
Pour the egg mixture into the buttered skillet. Do not touch for about 10 seconds until the edges start to set.
Using a heat-resistant spatula, gently stir the eggs from the edges toward the center in a folding motion. Continue stirring and folding every 10 to 15 seconds, allowing the uncooked eggs to come into contact with the skillet.
Cook the eggs until they are mostly set but still just slightly runny. They will continue to cook from residual heat.
Add toppings such as shredded cheese over the eggs a minute before they finish cooking.
Next, remove the skillet from the heat when the eggs are still slightly soft and moist. They will firm up a bit as they rest.
Let the scrambled eggs rest in the skillet for a minute or two to finish cooking. This will also allow them to become even fluffier.
Give the scrambled eggs a gentle stir. Then, transfer them to a serving plate.
Serve the fluffy scrambled eggs immediately while still warm. Garnish them with additional toppings if desired.
