When you’re getting ready to scramble your eggs, add a sprinkle of salt. As it does with meat, salt breaks down the proteins in eggs, making it so that the protein and the egg can’t form too tight of a bond. This will keep your eggs tender and prevent them to getting dry. Try a 1/4 of a tsp. so things don’t get TOO salty
