I got this recipe from a magazine probably 15 years ago. It's a great dish for breakfast, snack, and freezing for later. It's portable for DH - drop it in a baggie, and he heats it up when he gets to work. Even the kids like it. Plus you can add different meats (ground pork or turkey sausage, sweet italian sausage, or even crab), a variety of vegetables, and different spices and cheese mixtures. Try this one and then let me know your favorite combinations.

Delicious. This would be perfect to serve to overnight guests or at a brunch. I made it because I'm doing a no-carb diet for a few weeks and have gotten so tired of plain old scrambled eggs. I especially loved the onions and red pepper and will increase their amounts next time. Thank you!
