Scrambled Eggs in Cast Iron

I went on a 4 night camping trip and brought along a Wagner Ware skillet that I had bought at a thrift store for $5. The second morning I decided to try my hand at scrambling eggs in the pan. I didn't do anything to this pan after I bought it, in fact it still had the price written in grease pen on the bottom. I wiped the pan with a oily paper towel before cooking and the eggs cooked flawlessly.

Here is the aftermath.

I use a cast iron skillet to make scrambled eggs all the time. I have a dedicated egg CI. I trust you'll like the CI pan at home as well.

Yes, looks like scrambled eggs were made in that pan. It takes a while to build up a good seasoning, especially for cooking eggs. Out camping was a fantastic opportunity to season that pan, outdoors with ventilation.

My workhorse pan is a 12" CI. I regularly cook different types of eggs in it. I sometimes make a sausage McMuffin. A buttered English muffin goes in the pan along with 3 sausage links. Then I use a biscuit/cookie cutter the hold an egg. I add some cheese on top of the egg. When I'm lucky, they all come out at the same time.

I cook everything else in this pan too.

CI really is non-stick and you don't have to baby it.

If I were car camping I would bring some cast iron with me.
Usually when using cast iron at a campsite cook a whole pound of bacon, remove bacon and cook eggs in all that bacon grease. That along with some percolated camp coffee.

I thought about incorporating the pan into my kitchen but the wife said that it's so non-stick that it should be a camping skillet. Hopefully one of my other CI pans already in the kitchen will make eggs so well.

I'd counter that if I didn't have another CI that was the same size already in the kitchen.

You went to a thrift store, bought a pan, and didn't clean it before using it?
Maybe I'm a germophobe but that kind of made me shudder.
