I nearly ruined the recipe. I had some black cured olives in the fridge so I chopped them up but as soon as I put them on the pan I could smell that it it was wrong so I went back to square one. Definately the salad olives. I did the eggs like I do them for "Easy Omelet for One" and they came out lovely & light the hot pepper (I used a jalepeno) combined with the olives & onions gives a great taste to the eggs Thanks Najwa

Good. A change from the usual. I used stuffed jumbo olives which I chopped, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste in place of the crushed pepper flakes as that is what I had on hand. We ate ours with rice crackers for breakfast.

this recipe makes a nice, quick meal, and i always enjoy finding new ways to prepare eggs! I made a few alterations-- i chopped up about 8 green onions instead of the regular onion and added 2 minced garlic cloves. Also, i used sliced black olives and 1/4 tsp of mild chili powder because that was all i had. Thanks for a nice, new dish!
