  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Directions: Remember to Wash Your Hands!

1. Break 6 eggs into a medium-size bowl.
2. Pour milk into bowl with eggs.
3. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
4. Beat egg mixture with fork or wire whisk.
5. Place 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine in frying pan. Put pan on stove over low heat.
6. When butter is melted, add beaten egg mixture.
7. Stir eggs with spatula. Cook eggs until they are slightly firm.

Helpful Hints:

Eggs make a quick and easy meal, any time of the day!
Eggs are high in protein, so they can overcook if cooked at too high a temperature. A low heat for slow cooking results in evenly cooked, delicious eggs.

For easy clean up, rinse bowl and utensils in cold water. This will prevent the egg from hardening, as it might if you rinsed with hot water. Be sure to wash all equipment and utensils in hot, soapy water after rinsing.

Safety Tip:

Be sure to wash hands before and after handling raw eggs. Hands carry bacteria that can spread to other foods, dishes or people if they aren't washed thoroughly.
