"I myself prefer my New Zealand eggs for breakfast." -Elizabeth II, Queen of England 1952 - Present

The refrigerator light goes on...

Eggs are good for you. Period. Quit worrying and enjoy them.

You can substitute almost any veggie for the mushrooms but I like the meaty flavor that they bring. Scrambled eggs are especially good with red or green bell peppers or even spinach.

This recipe can easily be multiplied. Scrambled Eggs keep O.K. for about 24 hours and make great sandwiches with a bit of mayo, lettuce and tomato. Serve with a slice of whole wheat or gluten-free toast.
