Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In large skillet, cook bacon until it begins to crisp. Drain and reserve drippings. Return two teaspoons to skillet. Beat three of the eggs, two tablespoons water and dash of pepper. Cook eggs in hot skillet over medium heat without stirring until eggs begin to set on bottom and edges. Lift and turn over, cook until set but moist. Lift and turn over, cook until set but moist. Transfer to bowl, set aside. Brush 12 2-1/2 inch muffins cups with remaining bacon drippings.

Cranberry Apple Salad
2 cups raw cranberries
3/4 cup sugar
3 cups mini marshmallows
2 cups diced, unpared apples
1 cup seedless green grapes
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 envelope of whipped topping (Dream Whip)
Out of season, frozen cranberries work fine. Grind berries in food processor just until slightly cut up. Combine with sugar and marshmallows, cover and refrigerate overnight. Add apples, grapes, nuts and fold in freshly prepared whipped topping. I use red and green apples and green and red grapes for extra color. Looks great on the table.
