Maple Bacon Rolls with Swedish Scrambled Eggs

Our friends Kevin and Jennifer came down with their kids Kenzie and Kylan 
for a couple of nights over Memorial Day weekend.  I love when they spend
the night!  I really enjoy getting up in the morning and making a big breakfast
for them and sitting out on the deck while chatting, laughing and munching
away.  This visit Jimmy make one breakfast and I made the other...........this
was mine.    

Bay and Kenzie

I found the recipe for the Maple Bacon Rolls over at the Pillsbury website.  
Click here for the recipe.  When I say that these where a hit with Jennifer 
and me it is a HUGE understatement!  If you love salty/sweet like I do you 
HAVE to try these little babies!  Oh my gosh.....we were making all kinds 
of obscene noises all through breakfast because of these. Ok, it was mostly 
me but everyone else declared them fantastic too!

My Swedish Scrambled Eggs went really well with the rolls.  The subtle taste 
of garlic and dill with the creaminess of the cream cheese make for a really 
fancy but easy egg dish.  My secret to tender scrambled eggs is to go low and 
slow.  If you scramble eggs on a high heat they all the protein in the egg 
tightens up and makes the eggs all dry and rubbery.  It's so tempting for me 
to crank the heat up and just get them done but if you don't they will soft, tender 
and just melt in your mouth.

Swedish Scrambled Eggs

8 eggs
4 ounces cream cheese
1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 pat of butter
salt and pepper, to taste

Whisk eggs until they are light yellow and frothy.

Add chunks of cream cheese, dill and garlic to the eggs and stir to combine.

Melt butter in a medium sized skillet over medium heat.

Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and reduce heat slightly.  Push eggs around
to scramble until they reach the desired consistency.  

Serve immediately.  

I served everything along with my Stained Glass Fruit Salad.   K & J have 
had this dish on a previous visit but they love it as much Jim and I do.  They 
were happy to see it back on the table.  I'm already looking forward to their 
next visit and planning the menu.....of course, as much as we loved these rolls 
they just may get them again!
