What if you left them a little runny when you first cook them so they firm up but not too much when you reheat them?

Why not make a quiche instead of scrambled eggs? There a great recipe for crustless quiche lorraine in the recipe room.

I do this every morning, just cook them until almost done then zap them in the microwave in the morning with a few drops of water. I also take fried eggs too, just have to make sure you don't reheat too long and they seem fine to me.

I tried making a "big" omelette once so I'd have leftovers and didn't care for it. Still tasted like leftovers to me.

I comprised by keeping 6-8 beaten eggs refrigerated in a plastic container. On rush mornings I toss a pat of butter in a small nonstick pan, add a splash of beaten eggs and push around until cooked ... 30 seconds tops, fresh and hot.

If I'm feeling fancy I add minced veggies I have on hand ... bell peppers, onions, olives, grated zucchini or chopped leftover meats like ham or shredded pork.

I have rewarmed them, if they are plain then I notice the left over taste, but when I had bacon and cheese with them it was great

Are you reheating them in a microwave? If so, just cook them when you get to work, scrambled eggs are easy in the microwave.

I do all the time. Just be sure to reheat just until warm. I also cook them a little runny to begin with so when I reheat them it also finishes cooking them.

I make omelettes at night all the time so DH can reheat them in the am. Just don't cook them to death the first time. Leave them lifht & fluffy and 95% done. They'll be great the next day.

I fry my eggs in the evenings, and reheat them at the office every morning. I've had scrambled eggs done the same way, and aside from not really liking scrambled eggs to begin with, they weren't too bad.

Dizneegirl's Scrambled Eggs to Go

1 lb. sausage
12 eggs
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Cook sausage until crumbly. Let cool and add eggs and cheese. Mix together and fill greased muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and set.

Makes 18 muffins in a regular muffin tin... 3 muffins = 2 eggs. If your muffin cups are a little larger, you'll get 12.

These reheat great in the microwave.

I heat scrambled eggs in a micro at work all the time. I use one of the dishes with a hole in the top, to let the steam out, seem to taste better in them. I only heat up for 30 seconds at a time, so they don't get rubbery.
