Mom’s Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

I make these fluffy scrambled eggs when family comes for breakfast or when I just want to do something extra special for myself in the morning. My favorite cheese for this recipe is freshly grated white cheddar, but whatever you have in the fridge works! —Kailey Thompson, Palm Bay, Florida

    I love the creamy texture and all of the extra flavor from the bacon and the dill. Great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

    Delicious. Fast. Easy. I cut the recipe down to two servings; and we enjoyed this for lunch. The butter added so much creaminess. Thank you, Kailey, for sharing this recipe.
