Arkansas Poke Greens

1 1/2 lb Fresh, young poke shoots
8 Slices bacon
6 Eggs, beaten

Check poke shoots carefully; remove pulpy stems and discolored spots on leaves thoroughly; drain well.

Place poke shoots and water to cover in an 8-quart Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes or until poke is tender. Drain well and chop. Set aside.

Cook bacon in a medium skillet over low heat until crisp. Drain bacon; reserve 3 tablespoons drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon. Add chopped poke and bacon to bacon drippings; cook over medium heat 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in eggs; cook over medium heat, stiring often, until eggs are firm but still moist. Add salt and pepper to taste.
