  1. This is my new go-to breakfast on a weekday. I like to chop up a scallion (and sometimes a shallot too) and saute that a bit before adding the salsa. If you make this with egg beaters, it's not as awesome, but super-healthy!
  2. I cut up some extra onion and some bell pepper as well since I had some on hand and added it to the salsa. After the eggs were made I spread sour cream on a soft tortilla and made a wrap. It was VERY good. I'm not a huge fan of eggs, but these tasted awesome. I will make this again for sure.
  3. Recovering from a THR so I was looking for something simple & yummy, this was it. I sauteed some hash browns first and took them out of the pan. Then reduced the salsa, added the potatoes back in with the eggs & monterey jack cheese. Super, and DH absolutely loved it. Loved the salsa trick, will be making this again. Thanks Heather.
  4. This was a wonderful breakfast! Very easy to put together and they came out perfect! I love the salsa and cheese mixed into it. It was wonderful with the sour cream but I wasn't so keen on the guac. Thanks so much for posting!!
  5. Now there is nothing UGLY about these eggs! They taste great - I didn't add the sour cream nor the guacamole and they need that to put them over the top. Lovely Sunday brunch Thanks Heather & David


Hi! I'm very blessed with a daughter and 3 sons, all teens who don't hate me lol. I am passionate about my family, and being an Italian family makes us all foodies by nature! I love to cook just about anything that's rustic style, and I eat fairly naturally and vegetarian.
