Kid’s favorite healthy breakfast, nutritious!


2       Eggs

2 tbsp.        milk or water

Salt and pepper, as desired

3 tsp.          butter, room temperature, divided

4 slices      whole wheat or white bread

2 slices      Colby-Jack cheese

4 slices      fully-cooked bacon


Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper in small bowl until blended.

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.

Spread remaining 2 tsp. butter evenly on one side of each bread slice. Place 2 slices in skillet, buttered side down. Top evenly with scrambled eggs, cheese and bacon. Cover with remaining bread, buttered side up.

Cook sandwiches over medium heat, turning once, until bread is toasted and cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.


Grilled cheese sandwich recipes aren’t just for lunch or dinner, add a scrambled egg and some bacon for a yummy breakfast version.

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.
