Only things I changed in this recipe is use chopped pepperoni in place of the bacon (I forgot to take the bacon out of the freezer the night before....whoops!) and omitted the ketchup. Tasty eggs. I sprinkled some Tabasco over mine for a little morning kick. This would be great for a hangover cure paired with a beer. Read More

I wouldn t exactly call this a savory makeover of scrambled eggs as the submitter describes. After all it s just scrambled eggs with stuff in it. I think a half cup each of onions mushrooms tomatoes bell peppers and bacon is a HUGE amount for a mere four eggs! I would recommend the additions of each of these ingredients to taste. I took a big-time short cut on this however so other than the bacon I didn t have to be concerned about chopping and measuring anything. I made extras of Personal Portobello Pizza last night expressly for this purpose and I was grateful for the ease in which it allowed me to get breakfast on the table this morning with a minimum of fuss or muss. A mess this Aussie Breakfast Egg Mess is but this mess sure was good. Still because I believe 2-1/2 cups of add-ins to be extraordinarily heavy-handed for just four eggs I can only rate this 3-stars.

Great for breakfast and definitely "a quick and easy spin on scambled eggs" as the submitter states. I cut the recipe in half and cut back on the veggies just a bit as it was more veggies than eggs. I added a little minced garlic but other than that it was delicious with a side of whole grain toast and OJ! Next time I might put this "egg mess" in a tortilla for a nice breakfast wrap! Read More

This was a really good mess. I love this recipe. When I read it I thought I don't have all the ingredients so I had to substitute a few things. I did not have mushrooms but I had some hot peppers so I added that in. I made this yesterday and I am making it today. Delicious! Read More

It's neat that I found this recipe today. I was planning on making a variation of this for supper tonight. I make it every once in a while and wrap it up in a tortilla but I like your suggestion with the bacon and cheese. I usually use just cheddar but I'll be trying some of the other tonight. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Tried this recipe and it's by far the best breakfast food I've ever had. I did vary it up a bit; I used olive oil instead of butter with a clove of garlic and added a little dill crushed red pepper & thyme from a spice rack. It came out awesome with shredded cheddar mixed in at the end. Can't wait to make it again. Read More
