Grandpa Farrell's Scrambled Eggs

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 10 mins

From my ex husband's grandfather. Boys, this is where the eggs I cooked came from. He was a cook somewhere and they showed him this method. The eggs are very soft and perfect. Don't overcrowd the cast iron pan with eggs. It's time consuming, but worth it if you don't have too many.


  1. Fry the bacon in the cast iron pan.
  2. Beat up the eggs while cooking the bacon.
  3. Take the bacon out and pour off most of the grease.
  4. Dump the eggs into hot pan and stir off heat till done.

This is the way my mother sometimes made here eggs, both fried or scrambled, but she didn't have a cast iron pan. I made this as written, using a cast iron pan, and love the added flavor that the bacon grease brings to the eggs. I fried the bacon, and while egg was cooking, I toasted an english muffin, added a slice of cheese to it and then topped it with the egg and bacon slices for a great morning sandwich!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe and congrats on your win in the 12 Days of Christmas Surprise Event.

Exactly how I remember having eggs/bacon when I was a youngster. Thanks for bringing such a lovely memory back~ I followed this exactly~ nice with the cast iron pan. Added an english muffin, and this was the best! Thanks for posting!

Just like my ex-mother-in-law used to make! She was a wonderful woman, and a fantastic cook. Thanks for bringing back some spectacular memories.
