    These are really good... creamy and tasty. I just added some garlic salt and pepper, but thinking mushrooms, spinach and tomato would be good in them.

    Creamy texture and absolutely delicious flavor. I whip these up for dinner on busy nights. Just prior to removing the eggs from the pan I add a chopped tomato. I serve with some freshly shaved parmesan. My husband and I love them. He doesn't mind at all when I tell him it's been a long day and I'm whipping up these for dinner.

    I've been scrambling eggs with mayonnaise since the 1970's. The cheese and spices are a nice addition. Great recipe!

    I never thought of adding mayonnaise to scrambled eggs! But now that I tried it, I'm hooked!

    These eggs are sooo good. This recipe is a favorite, go-to egg dish. The taste is similar to that of an omlet. Will make this often.
