"Not just for breakfast but for any meal of the day. Omit green pepper and add mushrooms if desired. A topping of salsa might be good also. Haven't personally tried this recipe, it was posted by request."

  1. We love this! So easy and quick. Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or brunch. Serve with a side salad and seasonal fruit. We always add chopped onion and green peppers. On occasion sliced mushrooms. Perfect light meal!
  2. This was really delicious. I had some leftover ham, and this was a simple and yummy way to use it up! I doubled the recipe for my large skillet. Thanks for posting!


Love to read. I collect books and have quite a collection but am always adding more. I have also discovered audio books and find that I am able to get through more books by listening to them. Have recently started knitting and I really enjoy it even if it is quite a challenge at times. Always searching for a great recipe in any food category. As might be expected I never find "The One" but find many delicious ones along the way. One of our favorite restaurants is Jensen's Supper Club located in Eagan, MN.
