Yum! This was delicious and satisfying! I cut it down to a single serving, using 2 eggs, 1 t. butter, 2 t. milk (I used evaporated milk) and used a wedge of Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Cheese. Following the cooking directions, total time cooked in microwave was just over a minute. Served with a little salsa on top and the green onions made it extra tasty. Thanks so much for's a keeper!

We're in the process of packing to move~~so I realized this morning when I went to make scrambled eggs that my pots & pans were packed. :( This recipe made it no problem! I forgot the milk but it was fine~~love the "veggie" cream cheese in it. Thanks!
