eggs "with stuff"

Although I am a morning person, I am not really a breakfast food person. Here is one of the few breakfast dishes I do make. I warn you - it's not pretty! In this house it's officially called "Eggs with stuff"... in other words, scrambled eggs mixed with whatevers in the fridge.

Mince and saute whatever you have on hand... this morning we used onions, peppers, and garlic. Whip eggs with a fork and pour on top of softened veggies and cook as you would scrambled eggs. When eggs are almost done, add any last minute additions (i.e. diced tomato, fresh herbs, kalamata olives, etc)

... and if you aren't artery or waistline challenged (like my lovely husband), cover with freshly grated cheddar
