About This Recipe:
This dish is from a 1958 magazine ad for Campbell's Soups called "Souper Special Budget Beaters". Along with these scrambled eggs, the ad also featured a recipe for a 'Souper Casserole' with Cream of Chicken soup. As the ad states, "Good n' thrifty cooks cook with Campbell's Soups."

This is the way to make eggs different every day for the cost of a can of soup... Souper Mushroom Scramble (and beyond). Retro recipe from 1958.
