“Mother never had much time to fix fancy dishes—with a hungry husband and children to feed she got food on the table as quickly as possible. She fried ham and bacon in an iron skillet, transferred it to a hot platter and quickly broke eggs into the hot fat. She did try to cook eggs to suit our individual tastes: Father liked his over light, she liked hers well done, I wanted mine cooked medium, while one of my brothers wanted scrambled eggs. Sometimes she would do the eggs in a different skillet and us the ham or bacon drippings to make gravy for biscuits.”
—Sidney Saylor Farr – “More Than Moonshine”
Isn’t it funny how folks like their eggs cooked differently. Like Farr I prefer mine medium and The Deer Hunter prefers his runny 🙂
We eat a lot of eggs around the Blind Pig house. Here’s a few of our favorite quick ways to eat eggs for supper.
