This is my recipe for a very delicious, and special, version of scrambled eggs. Everyone loves it and there are never any leftovers. I have written the recipe for one serving, but you may multiply it accordingly.

Stove Top

Ingredients

2-3 slice
hickory smoked sliced bacon
2 large
eggs
1 pinch
salt
1 pinch
freshly ground black pepper (optional)
2 Tbsp
extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1 tsp
fresh chives (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Fry bacon in small nonstick skillet (for 1 serving or medium to large skillet for multiplied recipe) over medium heat, turning slices frequently, until browned and crisp.
2
Place bacon on paper towel to drain.
3
Drain all grease from skillet, but do not wipe skillet clean.
4
Crumble bacon; set aside.
5
Add eggs, salt and pepper (if using) to a small bowl or cup; whisk with fork until well-blended.
6
Place the skillet over medium heat; add beaten eggs.
7
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until eggs are about 2/3 cooked (mostly firm with some loose egg.)
8
Quickly stir in cheese and shut the heat off; continue to mix cheese into eggs until it begins to melt and eggs have firmed, being very careful not to over-cook (if over-cooked, the eggs will become rubbery.)
9
Stir in 1/2 of the crumbled bacon.
10
Remove to warm serving plate; sprinkle with remaining crumbled bacon and chives.
11
Garnish as desired. Serve immediately.
