    DH is a scramble egg fiend, and is always messing about with different ideas.<br/>He does something similar to this...but he was more than happy to give this a go.<br/>He thought that this was great....his description was...'full of different flavours'....and 'mmmmmmmm'. <br/>I thought the colours were amazing, and would have got a photo if DH hadn't been standing ready with his fork, and fearing I was about to get stabbed, I backed off!<br/>A sure fire hit Kate-anything that calms and satisfies a grizzly DH in the morning is a winner!<br/>Made for PRMR.

    I made this for dinner looking for something quick after a long day at work that I had everything for on hand and this really hit the spot. A great mix of flavours that made them really seem like dinner dish. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT 8.

    What a great way to start the morning. Especially on a slow Sunday morning. I really enjoyed the blend of herbs and vegetables, and it gave my usually bland eggs a nice boost.

    Simple and delicious! The onion, pepper, and tomato really blended well together and the cilantro was the crowning touch of verdant flavor. Made for ZWT 8.
