Cream Cheese & Bacon Scrambled Eggs

Not a very creative title but it does describe exactly what makes these eggs so yummy.  Cream cheese, butter, and milk are blended with eggs.  Add some bacon and bake until done.  These are fattening and dirty more dishes than I usually like to use but oh they are so worth it!

Cream Cheese and Bacon Scrambled Eggs Recipe by Tess at Circling Through This Life

I first discovered this recipe when I was 12 or 13 years old.  It was the early 80’s and microwave cooking was a new technology.  The department store where my mom purchased our microwave offered free cooking classes to new microwave owners.  I got to attend class with her.  It was during the class that we made these scrambled eggs.  The original recipe only used 4 eggs and made 2 servings.  I’ve adjusted the ratio of ingredients so that I can serve 5-6.  If Daddy’s home (and I don’t usually make them when he’s home) we have to have some fruit or something besides just the eggs and toast or I’m going to have to try adding in a couple more eggs Open-mouthed smile.   I also changed the recipe so that it is baked in the oven instead of cooked in the microwave.  We still use the microwave for melting the butter and cream cheese but not for the actual cooking. 

Here’s what you need:

Ingredients for Scrambled Eggs

  • Ten Eggs
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup crumbled bacon (sometimes I use left over cooked bacon but usually I cheat and use the crumbled bacon from Costco. It is better with the left over bacon but I’m lazy!

 

Putting It Together:

In a microwave safe bowl, combine cream cheese, butter and milk.  Microwave on high for 45 seconds.  Remove, stir, and then microwave again for another 20 seconds or until the butter is melted and the cream cheese is trying to melt. 

In a separate bowl beat the eggs and then mix in the milk/cheese/butter mixture.  Pour this mixture into a greased 2 quart casserole dish.  Sprinkle bacon over the top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.  If you preheat the oven the cooking time is shorter but I’d rather cook it a little longer and not feel like I am wasting electricity.

The Results:

I want to try experimenting with different meats and blends of cheeses to see what other “egg bake” combinations we can make.  I’m thinking ham would be fabulous or sausage and maybe some cheddar cheese?  Or maybe a meatless variety with just a cheese blend?  If you try this recipe with a different meat and/or cheese combo let me know how it turns out!  What is your favorite egg recipe?
