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.

"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!"

"Very good breakfast dish! The dill surprised me by adding to the over all taste. I really liked them"

"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. :)"
