My family raises chickens for eggs so we always have an abundant amount of eggs on hand. This is just one way to use a whole dozen for a quick put-together meal for the entire family.

Step 1: Things You Will Need

one dozen large eggs

an assortment of vegetables such as potatoes, zucchini,yellow squash, fresh green beans,carrots, bell pepper ( I used red and green),onion * **

*leftover vegetables work great with this recipe. Pretty much anything you can dice to bite-size pieces. Be creative!

**I've also used fresh chopped spinach

1-2 tablespoons of butter

1-2 tablespoons of olive oil

crumbled cooked sausage and/or bacon ( or leftover ham is great too!)

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

salt and pepper to taste

Italian spices (optional)

topping suggestions: taco sauce, salsa, diced green chili, ketchup , tobasco

1/4 cup shredded colby/jack cheese (or any cheese blend you have on hand)
