Delicious breakfast! I usually melt the butter and fry the onions a bit then add the egg mixture. Don't over scramble or they become rubbery. This is great with toast orange juice and a bit of bacon on the side. Read More

I threw in a large chopped organic red pepper and used fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder. This was great as a quick breakfast. The boys had this with last night's leftover cornbread. Read More

Great breakfast Heather! Simple ingredients and easy to throw together. I made this for The Boy for breakfast this morning along with toast before sending him off to school for the day. He LOVES it.....says it's the best breakfast he's ever had then told me to rate this one a five-star! High praise indeed coming from Mr. Doesn't-Wanna-Eat-Anything-But-Chicken-Noodle-Soup. Read More

This recipe was fantastic! My usually picky son finished his before my wife and I and looked in the pan to see if there was anymore. We didn't have any ham so I substituted about a half of pound of bacon which I cooked before hand after cutting it into 1 inch pieces. Once again just the tastiest breakfast imaginable. Read More

Tasty combination. Added diced green pepper and used frozen diced onions as a timesaver. I do think the timing is off a bit because eggs shouldn't have to be cooked for 10-15 minutes as the recipe stated. Mine were done in a just a couple of minutes. Read More

We do low carb and were getting bored with our breakfast choices. I made this today substituting sausage browned drained and crumbled added when the eggs were almost set. Like someone else I sauteed the onion along with some diced bell pepper then just added the egg mixture to the skillet finishing with the sausage and cheese. I thought my husband was going to eat the plate! It was so good! Read More
