I love finding obscure, kitschy old cookbooks. I found The Nancy Drew Cookbook at a thrift store for $1.50. It has a few breakfast recipes and they're mostly pretty standard stuff, but there's something a bit more special about scrambled eggs with mushrooms when you can call them Nancy's Scrambler. This turned out to be a very satisfying dish. The mushrooms really stood out - likely because there's a heck of a lot of them. Bottom Line: If you're looking for a simple scramble with mushrooms, Nancy Drew won't let you down. (This recipe was tested and photographed in December 2016.)
- 4 eggs
1 Tablespoon milk
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
2 drops hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 shakes pepper
1 4-ounce can mushroom slices
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
How To Make Nancy's Scrambler (Nancy Drew Scrambled Eggs)
Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl with a beater or fork.
Add the milk, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, salt, and pepper to eggs.
Drain the liquid from the mushrooms and spread them on a double layer of paper towels. Blot all the liquid from the mushrooms.
Melt the butter slowly in a skillet. Add the mushrooms. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly.
Add the egg mixture. Stir until the eggs are firm but fluffy.
Cooking Notes From Mr Breakfast:
Rather than canned mushrooms, I used the same amount of sliced fresh mushrooms which I sauteed in 2 Tablespoons of butter.
I liked the Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce, but they were only noticeable in the first couple of bites. I would recommend doubling those ingredients.
This recipe is from the chapter titled, "Brunch For Sleepyheads" in The Nancy Drew Cookbook.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
