Chopped tomatoes, bell pepper, and cheese make these scrambled eggs extra special. Use cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a blend of Mexican cheeses in this recipe.

Serve the scrambled eggs with sausages, ham slices, or bacon.


  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium ripe tomato (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon red bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon green onions (finely chopped)
  • Optional: 1/2 cup Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese

Steps to Make It

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together until well blended.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat until hot; pour in egg mixture. Reduce heat. As mixture begins to set on bottom and sides of skillet, lift and fold over with a spatula. Cook, stirring gently until eggs are almost set but still moist. Fold in the chopped tomato, finely chopped red pepper, and green onion. Heat scrambled eggs through; serve immediately.

  3. If desired top with shredded cheese just before finished.

Recipe Variations

  • Sauté sliced mushrooms in butter; remove the mushrooms, add the eggs (and more butter, if necessary), and continue with the recipe.
  • Add about 1/2 cup of diced ham or crumbled bacon to eggs along with the minced vegetables and tomato.
