How to Make BACON EGG & CHEESE SCRAMBLE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Fry 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.
  • 2Place bacon on paper towel to drain.
  • 3Drain all grease from skillet, but do not wipe skillet clean.
  • 4Crumble bacon; set aside.
  • 5Add eggs, salt and pepper (if using) to a small bowl or cup; whisk with fork until well-blended.

  • 8Quickly 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.)

  • 10Remove to warm serving plate; sprinkle with remaining crumbled bacon and chives.
  • 11Garnish as desired. Serve immediately.
