Perfect for a special-occasion breakfast or holiday brunch, this easy egg scramble is warm and hearty, with potatoes, ham, cheese and sweet red and green peppers. You can serve it for a casual supper, too. —Vicki Holloway, Joelton, Tennessee

"In a hurry for dinner? Need to use up some ham? This brunch dish cooks up quickly and can be a tasty dinner, too. We substituted chopped zucchini for the peppers and added a few more cloves of garlic. There were no leftovers!"

"One of my favorites for breakfast dinners too. I also do the potatoes different though. I cut them up and fry them in the pan until soft and then do the peppers and continue on with the recipe."

"I have been making this recipe for years. The only difference is I use either canned potatoes or thawed hashbrowns to cut down on the prep and cooking time. I have also used colby jack cheese which was delicious as well."
