  1. Wow, what a pleasant surprise this is. Yummy and easy. Hubby gave me "the look" when he saw me melting katchup and butter in the pan, but thoroughly enjoyed it. This is will be a breakfast staple!
  2. This has to be one of my favorite ways to prepare a quick, great tasting breakfast. It is easy and recommend it highly. Sounds to good to be true, but it is!!
  3. Wow, these really hit the spot this morning. The ketchup thickens while it cooks to make a nice thick sauce for the eggs. Its amazing that two ingredients can add so much flavor to the eggs. Thanks for the great recipe! It will definitely become a morning favorite.
  4. I really like ketchup with my eggs and Ill eat almost anything but this was too "ketchuppy" if I can use that word. And if I had to eat this as a hangover cure, I dont think I would be doing to well afterwards. But personal opinion might be different. Sorry.
  5. Nervous about making this, didn't tell my DH what I did until after he ate it, he and my DS's loved it! I put it on toasted bread along with canadian bacon and a slice of american cheese Thank You Darlene Summers!


  1. I made this with some hot salsa instead of ketchup, and it was stunning! Thank you


I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
