The fry-up is and always will be a classic, so here's the top tips on how to make the perfect scrambled eggs and sidestep an easily avoidable mistake.

How to cook the perfect scrambled eggs – and the common mistakes to avoid

Make sure you don't overcook the scrambled eggs or have the heat too high

For many of us home cooks, all too often, we over-scramble the eggs, reports the Daily Star.

And according to Australian-French chef Manu Feildel, this is because it's not only a common mistake – but a very easy one to make.

The celebrity cook, who hosts My Kitchen Rules, says that many of us are cranking up the heat too high.

He recommends putting your pan on a medium heat and melting butter into them, before adding your eggs when it starts to bubble.

During the cooking process, it's important to keep the stove at a steady temperature.

Manu explained: “Don’t let your pan get too hot.

“If the pan is too hot the eggs will cook too quickly, burn, and rather than be lovely and light, have a rubbery texture.”

To prevent the breakfast staple from overcooking, Manu recommends taking them off the stove quicker than you’d expect.

He added: “Remove them from the heat when still a little wet in places.

“The residual heat from the pan and the eggs will finish cooking them through.”

Hopefully you've been enlightened by Manu's tips, however simple they may seem.

So now it's time to get into the kitchen and put the method into practice.

And if you're going the whole hog, then why not make sure you're cooking bacon the right way and avoiding the simple mistakes with the sausages too.
