Smoky Scrambled Dill Eggs

When it came time to scramble up these eggs, I must admit, I wasn’t sure. Dill Weed in Scrambled Eggs? Turns out, the dill is not over powering, and lends a touch of something special. Crazy, right?

Depending upon how you prepare them, scrambled eggs can be viewed as a Lazy Man’s Omelette. After all, many of the things we like to fill an omelette with naturally pair well with scrambled eggs. There are certain ingredients that don’t – mushrooms immediately come to mind. It’s more a textural thing. Maybe if the mushrooms were cooked separately, then added after the eggs were cooked as a garnish. Just a thought.

In our house, scrambled eggs are great for busy weekends, since they cook up fast and are great on their own. Scrambled eggs are also great for a light supper. While the price of eggs has risen, thus far where we are eggs aren’t a luxury food. Beef is a luxury. If Prop 18 ever becomes law in California, pork will be another luxury. But for now, eggs are less than 50 cents each. Of course, I can remember when you could get an entire dozen for the price of a single egg today.

Oh, one more thing – this recipe calls for a splash of Half-and-Half. If you have it, fine. But unless you are making something else with Half-and-Half, use what you have on hand. I used heavy cream because I needed some for another recipe. Milk would also work well. It’s just another source of moisture added to the scramble.

Have a wonderful day! And so long February.

Smoky Scrambled Dill Eggs
1/4 Red Bell Pepper, diced
1/4 Yellow Onion, diced
1-1/2 teaspoons Mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons Half-and-Half
6 Eggs
1/2 teaspoons dried Dill Weed
3/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
3 strips Bacon
1 tablespoon Bacon Drippings

Finely dice bell pepper and onion, set aside.

Whisk together the mayonnaise and half-and-half in a large bowl until smooth, then whisk in the eggs, dill weed, and garlic powder. Set aside.

Dice bacon, fry in a large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, reserving about a tablespoon of the bacon drippings in the skillet.

To the bacon grease in the skillet, stir in the diced bell pepper and onion; cook and stir until the peppers begin to soften and the onions begin to caramelize, about 4 minutes. Pour in the egg mixture and sprinkle in the bacon. Cook and stir until the eggs are set, about 5 minutes. Scramble everything together, serve and enjoy.

Great with toast and jam for a light yet oh so satisfying breakfast.

I will go Lord where you Lead me
