Dolly Parton whips up some fluffy scrambled eggs every weekend

Dolly Parton cooks breakfast for her husband Carl Dean every weekend. She cooks up a delicious Southern breakfast for him. They’ve been married for 55 years.

Dolly who recently sat down with Insider on Zoom talked about her new line of desserts with Duncan Hines, revealing her special hack for perfectly fluffy scrambled eggs.  

Parton believes all you really need is some ice water.

“Somebody told me this once and it works,” Parton said. “When you crack your eggs in the bowl, say if you’re going to scramble them, use ice water. Put a few drops of ice water as you’re cooking them and that makes them fluffier — it really does!”

“So put a little ice water in that, it’ll fluff them up for you,”

“On Sundays, I make French toast, and I love that with bacon,” she added. “This is not diet food now, mind you.”

Parton said she always uses white bread for her French toast, and she also loves making gravy and biscuits for her husband.

“I just cook whatever comes to mind and whatever I’m in the mood for,” she said. “I can cook any of it!”

When Parton isn’t in the kitchen, she told Insider that she and Carl Dean love going to fast-food restaurants — including Taco Bell.

Parton said she is a huge fan of the Mexican Pizza, which Taco Bell removed from menus in November 2020, and she thinks the chain should bring it back soon.
