Step 1

Beat eggs with cream in a large bowl. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Pour eggs into the skillet and cook, gently stirring frequently, until eggs are scrambled and just set, but still moist.

Remove pan from heat and stir in sour cream, salt and pepper, 1/2 the cheese & chopped bacon. Spread eggs into a greased 12×7 glass baking pan. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Cover tightly and refrigerate.

When ready to serve, heat oven to 350ºF and warm through, approximately 20–30 minutes or until a thermometer registers 140ºF internal temperature.
