Make Ahead Scrambled Eggs Recipe
Meet the Cook: As a high school vice principal with a 5-year-old daughter, I especially appreciate the convenience of this dish. I've served it for breakfast and also as part of a full brunch buffet along with breads, biscuits, bagels and side salads. -Diane Sackfield, Kingston, Ontario
