For ideas on how to reheat scrambled eggs while helping them maintain their integrity we look to cooking experts like J. Kenji López-Alt, whose cooking resume most foodies can only aspire to have, and whose Instagram feed appears dedicated to the sole purpose of making our mouths water. And because López-Alt also cooked up 120 eggs over several weeks to get find a way to make this breakfast classic (via Instagram), he’d probably know a thing or two about leftovers.
In an Instagram post featuring a photo of a bacon and egg sandwich fitted between two toasted buns, López-Alt says: “[The] best way to use leftover scrambled eggs, in my opinion: toast a bun while you fry bacon. Put the fridge-cold eggs on the bottom bun, cover with cheese… and broil pretty far from the element so that the eggs reheat as the cheese melts and bacon cooks over 5-6m. Put the bacon on top, close the sandwich. Eat.”
His featured choice of cheese was Tillamook extra sharp cheddar, but we figure the hack will work with just about any kind of melty cheese. But don’t take our word for it. Give it a shot and see how it goes, because we’re pretty sure it won’t disappoint.
