Why are my scrambled eggs taking so long to cook?

The more water that gets cooked out of the eggs, the tighter the protein webs will be. If they get too tight like when eggs are scrambled for too long, the eggs will become tough and rubbery. On the other hand, if you don’t cook the eggs long enough, too much water will remain in the eggs so they will be runny.

Why do my eggs come out dry?

If you keep cooking eggs, the protein strands eventually get too tight and tangled, forcing out any water left in the eggs and making the eggs dry and rubbery. Over medium or high heat, this whole process happens fairly quickly and results in larger, more firmly set curds in your scrambled eggs.

Why is my boiled egg rubbery?

Hard-cooked (boiled) eggs – 19 minutes

If you cook them for too long, the protein toughens (becomes rubbery) and a greenish or purplish ring forms around the yolk. Extremely fresh eggs are not recommended when making hard-boiled eggs, as they are very difficult to peel.

Do fried eggs need to be flipped?

You don’t need to get it all the way under, but make sure it’s under the yolk before you flip. Allow to cook for about another minute for over-easy, 2 minutes for over medium and so on. Flip once more and serve immediately. And there you have it.
