One weekend morning, My husband and I were hungry for breakfast without the traditional sausage or bacon. I reached for the ground beef and tossed in other ingredients as I went. This recipe was the mouthwatering result.—Mary Lill, Rock Cave, West Virginia

Freshly squeezed orange juice is a nice accompaniment to Breakfast Scramble. One medium orange yields 1/4 to 1/3 cup juice. To extract the most juice, roll the orange on the countertop with your palm a few times before squeezing.

I think i will try this with sausage also, the ground beef was a bit blah. Otherwise tho it wasn't "bad".. also will try cheddar rather than american cheese.
