My favorite part of this recipe is that it made a dozen or so patties. And with just the two of us, I have little freezer bags with two patties each (uncooked). They’ll be easy to pull out and fry up for future weekend breakfasts. Give these a try.

How To Make Scrambled Eggs
How do you make your scrambled eggs? I’ve seen some instructions from noteworthy institutions that tell us to whisk the eggs vigorously to incorporate air so they’ll be big and fluffy. I don’t do that. I follow my Mom’s method which just so happens to be the same method I learned in Culinary School.
When I was old enough to care to inquire how she cooked them, she confided that the secret was “low and slow” and don’t overcook. The longer it takes to scramble an egg, the better it will be.
Many mornings I found scrambled eggs on my plate, so moist and perfectly wonderful. She’d cut up some bacon and brown it in a pan. Once cooked, she’d drain most of the grease into a glass jar which she kept in the refrigerator to use to fry or brown other meats. She’d break a few eggs in a bowl, add just a dash of milk or cream and then gently stir and slide them into the fry pan, low heat. A slow stir now and then made for perfection. If bacon wasn’t included she’d slow cook them in a little dollop of butter and lightly salted until soft set.
There’s nothing better than scrambled eggs with bacon pieces.
I think scrambled eggs are the most abused dish on earth. So frequently over cooked and served dry. I like cooking them in butter. Using a non-stick pan, once the eggs are starting to set, gently stir them a couple of times and remove from heat. They’ll continue to set up once they sit for a minute. The eggs should be served shiny and moist and with minimal seasoning.
