I made this a little differently than the recipe reads. I microwaved some frozen spinach, squeezed out the water, and made 6 slices of bacon and chopped it up. I mixed the 8 eggs, 1/2 cup milk...

Very easy Sunday breakfast for my husband and me. I reduced the serving size to 3 and used a pie plate. I baked it for 20 min. I also tossed in a couple of baby bella mushrooms and sprinkled som...

I've been making these for years, but I use my iron skillet! I saute the veggies in the skillet then add the beaten eggs and top with cheese. I sometimes add diced potato as well like a previo...

Delicious! I am not a fan of green pepper or onion but I like the flavor in certain dishes and I was feeling adventurous so I fixed this. I scaled this down to 1 serving (2 eggs) and I minced my...

Grandma used to make this about 60 years ago and I followed in her footsteps. I make it in a deep cast iron fry pan cooking shredded potatoes until nice and crisp, then adding eggs etc. and put ...
