Scrambled Eggs With Sliced Hot Dogs

"I really can't remember the first time I had eggs with hot dogs - I know it was many, many years ago. I think it comes from the days when we use to fry bologna slices. It's good with just the eggs and dogs, but also good with diced green bell peppers and diced onions with cheddar cheese. I serve this with orange slices, English muffins, and sliced tomatoes. Preparation and cooking times are an estimate."

    A quick and easy lunch that does take you back to your childhood, think it would be even better with the green bell pepper and onion mentioned in the description but sadly I made from memory so they did not make it in this time. Thanks for the post and next time will try adding some green pepper and onion.

    Love hot dogs and eggs. My Mother always called this "Penny Omelets". She would slice the hot dogs and fry them a bit in some oil then add the eggs and cook and flip the omelet and finish cooking the eggs. Love this on fresh French bread or white bread. A Penny Omelet was always a quick lunch for our family on weekends. Every once-in-awhile I still make Penny Omelets and think of Mom! Thanks for posting this recipe.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one out there who scrambles eggs with hot dogs. I've been making this for years and everyone I know thinks it's weird. But it is delicious.

    Greatness! I added some fresh garlic, onions, zucchini and tomatoes to the dish and used veggie dogs. Added chopped fresh basil at the very end. My son LOVED it.
