This one is a quick and easy work night dinner that my family requests frequently. You can change it up to use leftovers- but these are the common ingredients we use on a regular basis- adults and kids a like seem to enjoy it!! Could be a breakfast/brunch or dinner. ;) DH and I like to top it with salsa and sour cream, but the kiddos eat it plain! ****I couldn't find the seasoning I use in the list so I put it as a note on the side - it is Johnny's Salad Elegance and it is great on almost everything - garlic bread, eggs, sautéed veggies, dips, pastas, you name it!********

This was so yummy! I used bacon in place of the ham because that's what I had on hand. This was quick and easy and so delicious! Made for ZWT3 2007.

What a great lazy week end brekkie! I didn't have the salad seasoning requested so I used a Penzey's salad seasoning mix and it worked well. Also, I had to use regular onion and I used 1/2 of the amount of cheese (Gotta try to trim the fat somewhere!). The aroma is wonderful and I couldn't help thinking how perfectly it would be in a big chafing dish for a brekkie buffet. I love using asparagus, DH picks it out and puts it on my plate! Made for ZWT3.
