Scrambled Eggs With Ramps

Scrambled Eggs With Ramps
Here's one of the more traditional ways of preparing ramps that adheres to the principle of "less is more." Nothing fancy - just a few simple ingredients of good quality.

Find farm-fresh eggs and real smoked bacon if you can - you won't regret it.

1 to 2 pounds fresh ramps, cleaned and diced
6 large eggs
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3 to 4 tablespoons bacon drippings




Parboil ramps for about 10 minutes; drain well.


Over medium heat, heat bacon drippings in a large heavy skillet; add drained ramps.  Add beaten eggs; stirring constantly until eggs are cooked.

Garnish with cooked, diced bacon, if desired.  Serve immediately.


Delicious with cornbread, potatoes, and meat or fish.


Serves 6 to 8.
