How to Make Farm Style Scrambled Eggs

Today we are going to make a classic farmhouse breakfast featuring scrambled eggs.

Now, I encourage you to purchase farm fresh free range eggs directly from a local farmer. Why? Because they are better for you, they are more kindly produced and probably the product of happy chickens!

Here are just a few interesting facts about free range eggs. In a 2003 study, researchers at Pennsylvania State University reported that birds kept on pasture produced three times more omega-3s in their eggs than birds raised in cages on a commercial diet. They also found twice as much vitamin E and 40 percent more vitamin A in the yolks of the pastured birds. That is a real nutritional difference!

Eggs are also the richest known source of the antioxidant vitamins that are essential for the protection of the eyes against "Macular degeneration" which is the leading cause of blindness in people over 55 years of age. The deeper the yellow-orange color of egg yolks, the more eye-protection they offer. For more information about the healthy goodness of free range eggs visit our web site at

So, here is what you will need to make delicious farm style scrambled eggs.

Recipe for Farm Style Scrambled Eggs - 2 servings

  • 5 fresh free range large eggs (or 3 goose, duck or turkey eggs because they are bigger)
  • 1 Tablespoon of milk (we use raw goat milk, but thee can use cow milk, low fat milk or a milk substitute)
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt (1 dash for every two eggs)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon butter for frying
    Warm a medium size cast iron frying pan and melt butter on low.

    Crack the eggs into a large glass mixing bowl. Using a fork, whisk the eggs briskly and then add the milk and salt. Whip together for at least 1 minute.

    Once the melting butter has started to sizzle in the pan, pour in the whipped egg mixture. Allow the eggs to sit in the pan without stirring until they begin to bubble just a bit around the edge.

    Gently fold the lightly cooked edges into the middle of the pan with a wooden spoon or spatula. Continue to do so until all of the egg mixture has cooked thoroughly and there are no more runny sections.
    Scrambled eggs made with free range chicken eggs. A nutritious farm style breakfast that is good for thee.

    Spoon scrambled eggs onto a nice warm plate.

    Serve scrambled eggs, while hot, with warm biscuits, jam, pieces of fruit, and a bit of cottage cheese.

    Salt and pepper to taste.
