Ruhrei.... Mennonite Scrambled Eggs

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Leslie

This is a different and delicious way to make Scrambled Eggs, my MIL used to make them this way and we loved them! Very creamy. She said originally they used to make eggs this way to stretch the eggs further when feeding a large family, now we just make them because we like them! From the Mennonite Cookbook. *Caution: These eggs are of a very creamy and different texture and need to be fully cooked and set through.

This was really really good!!! I fried some onions and added it to the batter- we loved it! I will definitely make this again.
