how to say “scrambled egg” in Hebrew

בֵּיצָה מְקֻשְׁקֶשֶת


scrambled egg -ביצה מקושקשת


We’ve seen that the active-intensive פיעל verb לקשקש means to scribble or to talk about nothing in particular. When cooking, this word can also refer to scrambling something such as an egg.

Thus a scrambled egg is ביצה מקושקשת , as in:

תכין לי בבקשה ביצה מקושקשת.

Make me a scrambled egg, please. (to a male)

מקושקשת is a passive-intensive פועל form of לקשקש.

Israelis don’t speak of scrambled eggs in the plural – only in the singular.
