This is not scramble eggs with bacon on the side.
This is scramble eggs with bacon. Together.
I hope I just scrambled your idea of breakfast. So now let’s enjoy these together.
Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. On fast days I grab a bowl of cereal. In the Winter time it’s usually toast, figs and tea. But on extra special days and weekends, it’s a full on breakfast. Sometimes it’s pancakes. Sometimes it’s waffles. Sometimes it’s a egg burrito. But my favorite breakfast? Scrambled eggs. As a kid my Mother would make me scrambled eggs while she enjoyed hers “dippy” style. I would usually lather my scrambled eggs in ketchup. Ok I’m lying, I still do this.
This recipe mixes my favorite scrambled eggs recipe (I only use this!) with bacon.
Oh bacon, bacon, bacon. You beautiful thing. Who doesn’t love bacon? Just the smell of it will make me jump out of bed and run to the kitchen shouting “Bacon! Bacon!”. I get really excited about bacon guys.
Also who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? I think this has to become a weekly meal in my house. Do you do eggs for dinner sometimes? What’s your favorite way to serve them?
Like I mentioned, this is my favorite scrambled egg recipe that I live by. It’s only a few ingredients, it’s quick and it’s the best. At least to me it is. I can’t get enough of these.
The 2 main ingredients are eggs and bacon. I usually always use Butterball Turkey Bacon. I could snack on this all day long but that’s another story. Butterball turkey bacon is a great choice for eating right. The bacon has 65% less fat than pork bacon with only 25 calories per slice. Turkey bacon never makes me feel guilty when eating a piece. Other bacon, well that’s another story again! Speaking about turkey products, Butterball also sells turkey burgers (cheddar!) and turkey dinner sausage. Their sausages are perfect for a quick and easy dinner. They’re also perfect because they are 100% turkey with 60% less fat than beef or pork sausage. Lots of people think of Butterball for only Thanksgiving but it’s a year around addition to the dinner table (or breakfast table!).
Here’s why I love this bacon though, the taste! It’s crunchy when cooked. It doesn’t taste “fatty”. It tastes like Mama’s bacon. It tastes delicious. It tastes like I could eat 6 slices. I’m kidding, I would never do that. I’m lying, I totally would do that. I love that I can have a piece of bacon that is wholesome and fresh but still has a big punch in the flavor department. I have a crush on this bacon, I admit to it. The other ingredients are milk, salt and a tablespoon of butter.
And a few minutes later your scrambled eggs are ready for plating! (My husband hates the word plating so that’s why I’m using it).
Enjoy your next breakfast!
