  1. Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper in bowl until blended.
  2. Heat 1 tsp. butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Pour in egg mixture. As eggs begin to set, Gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking--pulling, lifting and folding eggs--until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly. Remove from pan. Clean skillet.
  3. Spread remaining 2 tsp. butter evenly on one side of each bread slice.
  4. Place 2 slices in skillet, buttered side down. Top evenly with scrambled eggs, cheese and bacon. Cover with remaining bread, buttered side up.
  5. Grill sandwiches over medium heat, turning once, until bread is toasted and cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.

  • Avoid cast iron. Eggs scrambled in a cast iron skillet can turn a greenish shade. This harmless but unappealing color change is the result of a chemical reaction between iron in the pan and sulfur in egg whites.
  • Don't overcook. The heat retained in the pan will continue to cook and firm up the eggs after pan is removed from heat.
  • How long to beat? It's a matter of preference. Light beating produces more dense scrambled eggs. Vigorous beating aerates the eggs, resulting in lighter fluffier curds.
  • This recipe is an excellent source of protein, calcium and choline, and a good source of fiber, Vitamin A, folate and iron.

Great for breakfast on the go! Instead of bread, I used EarthGrains thin muli-grain rolls that I toasted.

Oh yum was this ever good! I opted for over easy eggs instead of scrambled and used pepper jack cheese. Kids loved this!!!!!!!!!!

This was good, but I would only make it occasionally as a fried breakfast is pretty heavy. I used veggie bacon because I am vegetarian. Thanks!

REALLY Delicious! I used white bread and American cheese. Thanks! I will definitely make this again!

My kids loved this for breakfast, and I loved the fact that it was so easy. I used turkey bacon, but followed the recipe otherwise. I think this one may go into the weekly rotation.
