Damn Good Scrambled Eggs!

A few years ago my husband, Frank, was "adopted" by a lady named Cha Cha.  She is a neat lady who taught him how to kill a dear, shoot a hog, gut it, skin it and cook it!  She took up hunting so that she would have a life long common interest with her two boys.  She has a big heart, but most of all, SHE CAN COOK!  She taught us the true meaning of a scrambled egg!  There is nothing low fat or low cal about these eggs, and they are YUM-O.  My husband Frank has learned his lessons well, and he is now the egg master in our house.  We were visiting friends in a charming little Texas town called Victoria recently, and it was about 7:30 in the morning.  All of the kids were up, and all the grown ups were sleeping in, as all good grown ups should do on the week end!  Frank and I were up, and asked the kids if they were hungry.  They were.  Frank pulled out a skillet and proceeded to whip up some Cha Cha eggs.  There was a character of an 8 year old there, named Jayce.  Frank made his eggs, and he scarfed them down, and asked for seconds.  A short time later, Jayce's mom woke up and asked him if he was hungry.  He told her "Yes, and Frank makes some damn good eggs."  Out of the mouths of babes!

You will need:

1 stick of genuine died in the wool BUTTER

As you can see they are simple but the trick is when you remove them from the fire.  Melt the butter!  Beat the eggs!  Cook over medium heat but don't be tempted to stir them too much.  Let them cook a little bit and form kind of an omelet under the runny eggs on top.  Now, scrape the bottom a couple of times.  Repeat...this is the tricky part...take them off before they look done.  They continue to cook a little bit after you remove them from the heat, so take them off when they still seem to be just a bit too runny.  I can't explain it, but this is when the magic happens.  In like 2 minutes, the eggs are perfect.  This takes some practice at first, because you are tempted to stir them until they are dried out little egg jerkies!  It also takes some extreme will power to remove them before they are completely cooked...but do it, I tell you, DO IT!  You won't be disappointed...I know Jayce wasn't!
