A mixture


In order to be a pure substance, a material either has to be an element or a (single) chemical compound.

Scrambled eggs contains many different chemical compounds, including water, various proteins from the egg, some fat that it has been cooked in, and possibly some milk (which is in itself a mixture).

Therefore scrambled eggs are clearly a mixture.
