"My mother often served this for breakfast, and I've made it often. It makes scrambled eggs more interesting--though higher in calories."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cook bacon in a skillet, turning at least once and draining off the fat into a container for drippings. If you don't use the drippings, just discard the container when full. Please do not pour bacon drippings down a sink drain unless you like paying plumbers' bills.

Step 2

Break eggs into a bowl, being very careful to fish out any bits of shell, and whip with a wire whisk or fork until blended.

Step 3

Pour into lightly greased or nonstick skillet.

Step 4

Add the milk if desired.

Step 5

Cook over medium heat while constantly stirring with a fork, being careful not to let any of the egg stick to the pan.

Step 6

Cut the bacon into small pieces, about ¼".

Step 7

Mix the bacon pieces in with the eggs when the eggs are scrambled enough to be light and fluffy.

Step 8

Sprinkle salt and pepper over eggs.

Step 9

Serve at once.

This was a wonderful, easy recipe that flew off the breakfast table. It had the perfect bacon to egg proportions and there wasn't anyone fighting over strips of bacon this morning. I didn't use the optional milk, but followed the recipe as directed otherwise. Served with toast. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Made for B'Zazzled Tag Game in the forums.

Scaled back for one serve and used what we call rindless bacon, similar to Canadian bacon but essentially is the eye of the bacon rasher and since it has so little fat I chopped it up and fried it in the frypan with a little oil and then once cooked put on paper towel and cooked the egg in the same frypan and had some toast on the side for a very satisfying meal though I did not add salt as I feel that the bacon is salty enough but yes pepper was added. Thank you JoanWagnerTeller, made for Pick Me tag game under the 48 hour rule.
