This tasty egg dish from Mary Relyea of Canastota, New York makes a great breakfast entree, but could easily be served for lunch or dinner, too! Fresh eggs are jazzed up with red tomatoes, onion and green bell pepper, then treated to a topping of savory mozzarella cheese.

"I make this recipe up on Monday and have it for breakfast for the next couple of days. Found it in Dec/Jan issue and lost 8 pounds following an eating program out of this issue."
