This recipe comes from Seven Gables Inn in Pacific Grove, CA. I haven't had a chance to prepare this but it definitely sounds like "gourmet" eggs.

Easy, tasty breakfast dish! DH and I enjoyed this. The fresh herbs gave it a nice flavor and really came through. I halved the recipe since it was just the two of us. Thanks for posting.

  3. Reserve 2 tablespoons bacon grease in small bowl and discard remainder.
  4. Wipe skillet clean with paper towels and set aside.
  5. Finely crumble bacon when cool.
  6. Vigorously whisk together eggs, parmesean cheese, cream, basil, salt and pepper in a bowl until foamy.

  8. Add scallions and cook stirring occasionally until soft about 3 minutes.
  9. Add egg mixture to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally to scramble eggs and form large curds, lifting up cooked egg around edges to let raw egg flow underneath.
