How do you tell if scrambled eggs are undercooked?

1) Scrambled eggs cooked to a typical doneness are moist, not-browned, and not expelling excessive liquids on to the plate. If the eggs are not done, they will not be “set” into curds and will be noticeably slimy. That said, cook them how you like them. 2) Cooking time is dependent on cooking temperature.

Is it OK to eat slightly undercooked eggs?

If that egg is pooled with many other eggs, not fully cooked, or held at a warm temperature allowing the Salmonella germs to multiply, it can make many people ill. A bacterium, Salmonella Enteritidis, can be inside perfectly normal eggs, and if the eggs are eaten raw or undercooked, the bacterium can cause illness.

Are scrambled eggs well cooked?

How long should scrambled eggs be cooked?

about 3-5 minutesMelt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add eggs, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they just begin to set. Continue cooking until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 3-5 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.

Can you get food poisoning from scrambled eggs?
