Notes

  • You can use all egg whites. 12 eggs = 3 cups.
  • For meat, use chopped bacon, sauteed or not.
  • Cooked ground turkey, chicken or beef would work as well.
  • Replace or add some of bell pepper with up to 1 cup of sliced mushrooms (brown ones have more flavor).
  • Add a few handfuls of spinach, kale or swiss chard to an egg mixture.
  • Make spicy by adding hot sauce or red pepper flakes to an egg mixture.
  • Add a can of diced green chiles for Mexican version.
