    Really enjoyed these, added bacon and cheese. Even my non-egg loving ds really enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing………..And as others have said clean up is a breeze!

    I usually dislike eggs but these were amazing!!! I added layers of mozzarella cheese + pepper and more salt- They are very delicious (:

    This was really really good!!! I fried some onions and added it to the batter- we loved it! I will definitely make this again.

    These eggs are really good if you add something to it. My kids will only eat them if I add cheese. I usually add some pieces of bacon as well. These do not stick to the pan like regular scrambled eggs would and the clean up is a breeze.

    I scaled back for 1 serve and though the eggs had good texture when cooked all I seemed to be tasting was raw flour. Thank you ~Leslie~ made for Name that Ingredient tag game.

    My Mom called these stirred eggs. Have made this recipe twice now(triple recipe), once with country gravy and once with 1/4 cup each diced bacon, onion, green bell pepper and 1 potatoe peeled and shredded. Both times this turned out great and my family loved them. Thank You for the recipe from my childhood. This is a Keeper.

    These were absolutely delicious! I wanted something with eggs for breakfast, but plain eggs can get boring and pancakes are too “bready.” These eggs were the perfect combination. I think I’ve found my new morning fix! Thanks for the recipe!

    So good. Gonna make it this way from now on. More filling than other scrambled eggs. Really enjoyed the nearly clean pan when I finished making these.

    These are the scrambled eggs of my childhood. I have never had the recipe but now I do. I love these eggs. My Mother would add bits of bacon. So good. Thanks.

    I went for a German themed breakfast today and served with Nuremberg Bratwurst. To the flour I added some garlic and onion powder, with a 1/3 tsp. of Hungarian paprika (I enjoy a bit of heat). The eggs set so well in the pan that I am going to use this as a base for omelettes from now on- once the bottom cooks and you cut, you can add your stuffing ingredients to the inside before you turn. The creamy/moist texture also goes really well with gouda or muenster cheeses too- I topped it off with some muenster and sauteed mushrooms. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
