Wild Onions and Scrambled Eggs

Wild onions have an important social aspect among many Native American people in Oklahoma. In the early spring, many Native American churches, stomp grounds, clubs and other groups host wild onion dinners. Families and friends often make an outing of gathering wild onions and/or eating them together. Today, freshly-picked wild onions are often frozen and kept for months so they can be enjoyed throughout the year.
