"From my ex husband's grandfather. Boys, this is where the eggs I cooked came from. He was a cook somewhere and they showed him this method. The eggs are very soft and perfect. Don't overcrowd the cast iron pan with eggs. It's time consuming, but worth it if you don't have too many."

The bacon grease adds so much flavor to the eggs... and the bacon turns out nice and crispy in a cast iron skillet!
