Ah, this brings back memories... My PennDutch mother used to make this on rainy days. The perfect german comfort food. I made it tonight for my family and even my husband (who was skeptical at first) enjoyed it. I did add some grated cheese to the scrambled eggs to up the protein content a bit. I second the addition of maple syrup! Other toppings we used to use: stewed tomatoes, ketchup, hot sauce/salsa, parmesan cheese.

When i was in elementary school my family had an exchange student from Germany. She introduced my family to this. She was a vegetarian however and didn't do bacon. It was just leftover pasta and eggs. DELICIOUS. I top it with maple syrup. Sounds gross, i know, but I just love this!
