...without it turning into a rubbery glob?

As with all scrambled eggs, I've found the key is to not cook it for too long. I always found it easier to cook two yolks at once instead of just one also.

Sorry, dumb question -- Do you just separate the yolk from the white like you would normally do in cooking and hope there's no egg white left in case of allergies?

Maybe this isn't the kind of answer you're looking for, but I think the easiest way is to hard boil the whole egg & then just feed the yolk to the babe.
The best way I've found to get my dd to eat the yolk is by mashing about 1/2 the yolk into about 2T of applesauce. Sounds gross, but you can hardly taste it.
Happy cooking. :)

Boil the egg and just use the yolk?

We either boiled them or DH would separate them and scramble with a tiny bit of water. He has some trick involving a funnel for separating egg yolks and whites. I guess we never had a definite way to make sure the white wasn't coming along.
But, we just did that for about a month and then learned that Mari had already had egg whites at her foster parents' house so we gave up and went to whole eggs.

We used an egg separator and then added a touch of water and whisked it together. Just cook it until done and no more. We also gave in early on the egg thing. We had no history of food allergies and at some point at about 10 months, I realized 3/4 through breakfast that I had been feeding her regular scrambled eggs. We didn't look back.

We also use an egg separater and then we eat the whites while ds eats the yolk! I actually just made them this morning for ds, and I scramble the yolks (usually do two) and then add just a bit of formula (I'm sure you could use EBM, too) and that makes them fluffy and keeps them from getting too rubbery or too crumbly.
