Happy National Egg Month! Our first recipe

It is obvious, by our homestead, that eggs have become a passion with us. We gather them, we incubate them or we eat them
This is National Egg Month.
Recent research has found that men and women who ate 2 eggs for breakfast as a part of their low calorie diet lost 65% more weight and had a 61% greater reduction in BMI. Eggs keep people more satisfied until their next meal.

**SCRAMBLED EGGS (generally use about 2 eggs per person $.26 a person $1.04 for family)
 In a small bowl, crack open 6 eggs Using a fork, or whisk, beat in 6 tablespoons milk until blended. 
 Heat a small skillet over medium heat, add 1 teaspoon butter or cooking oil (or use cooking spray) until just hot enough to sizzle a drop of water.  Pour in egg mixture.  Reduce to medium-low heat.
 As mixture begins to set, this is a good time to add anything – mushrooms, onions, cheese. Then with a wooden spoon, gently scrape the eggs across bottom and sides of pan, forming large, soft curds. 
Continue cooking until eggs are thickened and no visible liquid egg remains.
