Ingredients

1 qt
poke salat', drained (i can it myself),don't think you can buy it that way.
2 Tbsp
heaping, bacon grease
4 large
eggs, beaten well
salt

Directions Step-By-Step

1
First off, if starting with fresh poke:
Pick when leaves are young. If some are larger with large stems in them, strip leaves from stems.
Parboil it 3 times, using clean water each time & boiling each time for at least 10 minutes.
2
Drain poke well & place in cast iron skillet, if you have one, with the bacon grease. Heat through.
3
While still heating on medium heat, slowly drizzle in the beaten eggs, stirring constantly, until all eggs are in. Cook only long enough to cook the eggs. About 1 more minute, I would say. Salt good. You want to taste it.
4
Serve with homemade pepper juice (vinegar in peppers)
