I am going to try this tomorrow evening! I have made something real similar to this and really enjoyed it so I will mix things up a bit with this recipe!

This is great. I was only sorry when I found my plate empty. And it is very flexible, I added in seasonal vegtables and it worked very well.

I would add some spices, I added cumin and coriander and chili powder, probably a quarter teaspoon of each. Like Margo said, I would probably use egg substitute as well, instead of eggs (or at least a mixture.

This was good, but needs a little extra flavor. I did substitute the spinach for green beans. I would make this again!

I used ground turkey instead of beef and this recipe turned out great! The next time I make this dish, I will mix some skim milk with the eggs so it will be little more creamier. Great quick recipe!

This is a fabulous dish. It's great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Maybe should use 1/2 Turkey italian sausage and 1/2 lean ground beef to make it a little more flavorful.

**This is higher in fat then what it claims.** The ingredients call for only 4 oz of cheese but the directions tell you to add 8. Plus, 5 eggs?? One serving of this is a WHOLE lot more fatty then it is represented in the nutrition facts. ...But, it tastes really good. We substitued Southwestern Egg Beaters and lean ground beef.

Let me tell you...this recipe is so incredibly versatile. I have made it at least 3 times. I have frozen my left overs, great. I have eaten it on lettuce & topped with sour cream, YUMMY! Also I have used a small left over portion in my omelet, YES! However, you may want to use more egg if you are using a larger pan because it is a bit crumbly but I & my diet buddies have loved it every single time I have made it and all the "alternatives"!!
