    KGCOOK's Note:

    This is just so simple and versatile. You can put anything in it you like. Make more to go with it or not. DH and I like it just this way because it can be filling depending on what you put in it. Seasonings are to your taste. I change them all the time depending on what I add to these. The more servings you need, you can add extra of any of the ingredients. This is also a budget stretcher. Cooking time does not include adding more than ingredients listed. If you use meat, be sure to precook it first and drain.

      I love this recipe. I am eating this as I type. I followed the recipe exactly and chose to put mine in a flour tortilla for a breakfast burrito. I added extra cheese and salsa to the burrito. Fantastic! Thanks so much for posting!

      We really enjoyed this for breakfast. I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I doubled it for my family.I did use the milk instead of water and used cheddar cheese. My youngest put it in a tortilla wrap but the rest of us just ate it as is. This was easy to make. I did add pepper to the egg mixture and just a touch of salt.
