Pamela Shank says she's recently started eating healthier foods and this is one of her favorite breakfasts at home in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Full of peppery eggs and crunchy veggies, it's also easy to make and so satisfying, she adds.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 19, 2013

With some revisions, this has become one of my favorite breakfast recipes. I usually omit the mushrooms since I don't have any (or use canned ones), substitute pimentos for the sweet red peppers since I have some that need to be eaten, and substitute scrambled tofu for the egg substitute. I also use twice as much sour cream as salsa since I don't like spicy things.
