  Nay, I started with a recipe for what amounted to SOS, or Creamed Beef on Toast, except that the recipe used hamburger instead of dried beef. That sounded good, so I tried to think of what to put it on, since toast was out. Usually I put that sort of thing on veggies, but for some reason that wasn't what I wanted. So I thought of eggs, instead. And then I thought of using sausage instead of ground beef. So it ends up sort of like Biscuits and Gravy with a side of eggs, only without the biscuits. I've had the extra sausage gravy over the eggs, way back in the days when I ate biscuits and gravy made with flour, and it was good. So that's how I came up with this.

NowYouDidIt - Four large eggs is close to a cup, raw, and more than that cooked, depending on how it's cooked. It has about 25 grams of protein, which is a good sized serving. And it usually costs between 40 and 50 cents, which is cheap for a meal's worth of protein. And, as you say, it is very versatile. There are lots of ways to eat them, though I tend to cook them the same few ways most of the time.

    Maw do you think eggs are a cheaper protein than meats? It sure seems that they are, they are also more versatile. My kids don't like large quantities of meat- I'm thinking of going more with eggs. Only problem is I can't make them fast enough- they eat them up fast! emoticon

    I never considered putting gravy on eggs. Interesting idea.
