Farmhouse Scramble (version 1)

So OK- I am sorry the photo looks like vomit…

I did try to improve it’s nauseous qualities in photoshop but unfortunately I am unable to work miracles. I will have to just live with the plain truth of the fact that the Farmhouse Scramble (1) recipe in the book “Feed the Nation” by Marguerite Patten OBE is one of the less attractive home front recipes.

As it tastes somewhat nicer than vomit I will forgive her..

Farmhouse Scramble (version 1)

  • 8 oz mixed raw vegetables grated
  • 2 eggs (reconstituted dried eggs)
  • 1/2 oz margarine
  • salt and pepper


Melt the margarine in a saucepan.

Add the veggies and heat until lightly cooked

Beat up the eggs with the seasoning and then pour over the hot veggies and mix until scrambled lightly

Serve with potatoes or in a sandwich or on toast!

(1940sexperiment tip: I would add onions or chopped leeks to the veggie mix)

PS: I am thinking that there are a number of visitors to my blog who are interested in food and frugality. You maybe interested in a recipe I cooked today for ‘Fabby & Frugal Breakfast Muffins’. The ingredients I used were available in my ration but because I couldn’t find a recipe for muffins during WWII I just couldn’t post it in my blog as an authentic recipe- CLICK HERE to check it out!
