This recipe is very versatile. You can add bell pepper, mushrooms, or any veggies you like. You can peel the potatoes or wash and leave the skins on. You can use red, white, yellow or green onions. You can use any meat or meat combo you like, as well as cheese. You can use whatever you have on hand. Great way to use up bits of leftovers. You can top with fried eggs instead of scrambled. You can do a healthy version-use turkey bacon or sausage, cooking spray instead of oil, egg substitute, or top with poached eggs. You can use low-fat cheese. Any and all combos are wonderful when added to the potatoes and onions. Also, it's VERY easy to adjust the amount to feed 2 or a crowd. Also great if you have company and not enough eggs to cook everyone 2-3 eggs a piece. You just scramble in whatever you have and it works.
