Clean chicken washing inside and out. Rub spices such as garlic, salt pepper, poultry seasoning on the outside of chicken. Pour some of the beer 1/4 of the beer out of the can.

(USD of Public Aid)
One ounce of egg mix equals one whole egg. To use egg mix in place of fresh whole eggs, use 1/4 egg mix and 1/4 cup water for one egg. Use egg mix right away after mixing with water or other liquid.

Put egg mix and water in a bowl. Beat until lumps are gone. Pour mixture in a heated, greased fry pan. Cook and stir over medium heat until eggs are firm and well cooked.
Makes 2 1/2 cups or 6 servings, about 1/3 cups each. NOTE: for one serving use 1/4 cup egg mix, packed, and 1/4 cup water.
1 1/2 cup dry egg mix, packed 2 cups water 12 slices bread
oleo or butter for browning
