"I love to fix this spicy scrambled egg dish for friends and family," writes Kay Kropff from Canyon, Texas. TIP: "It's a meal in itself, but I serve it with muffins or biscuits, fresh fruit juice and coffee," she notes.

"I made it without the bacon (because I didn't have any on hand) and thought these eggs were really good and flavorful."
