When you're short on time and scrambling to get a meal on the table, this recipe is "eggs-actly" what you need. There's a short ingredient list, and cooking is kept to a minimum. Plus, with green pepper and tomato, it's colorful. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"I love egg scrambles, and this one was added to recipe box & is a keeper This was easy and fresh tasting. ! I added about 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar, or try adding ham & swiss."

"Hallelujah! A great, quick recipe that uses the last bit of green pepper and onion that I usually have sitting in my fridge. I didn't add the tomato to the egg scramble (cuz I usually have the luck of the sogginess), but instead I sliced cherry tomatoes in half and garnished with a bit of the salt, pepper and dill weed. What a healthy way to start my day!"

"It was hot today and I felt like something quick and easy, and this was it. These eggs reminded me of the skillets you can get at a breakfast place, and was a nice change from the everyday scrambled eggs. I personally think it needed a little cheese, but that's a quick addition!"

"These eggs tasted really good. I was skeptical about the dill, but it wasn't over powering. The green peppers and tomatoes gave the dish great flavor. I will admit I added a tad more butter. I think butter and eggs go together like Lucy and Ethel. :)"

"What a delicious and easy way to dress up scrambled eggs! I enjoy preparing recipes that make the most of my fresh garden produce and this recipe does that well. I had only made half the recipe for the two of us; however, my husband cleaned his plate in a flash and would've eaten more. (He had to fill up on pancakes instead!) I'll definitely be making these eggs again!"

"I made this recipe this morning for breakfast and declare it a winner. So very good. I did pare it down for just the two of us and added shredded cheese just before it was done. Oh, my gracious, was this good! You can easily substitute ingredients and the suggestions are endless but it is delicious as written. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."

"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!"
