"Delicious! My oldest son doesn't usually like anything with color in his eggs, but these he didn't mind! The dill changes up the eggs so much! Definitely making again!"

"These were good. Ingredients I normally have on hand. I really enjoyed the addition of the dill. I did leave out the tomato. My family enjoys them, but not hot."

"What was great about this recipe is everything in it I had on hand. We raise chickens and have a garden so this was easy for me to put together for the family. The spices in it definitely added an extra pop of flavor. Everyone enjoyed it!"
