I used reduced fat mayonnaise and fat free evaporate milk. Though the kids didn't like it, I sure did. What they didn't eat, I finished. The mayonnaise and the evaporated milk made these eggs wonderfully fluffy and the mayonnaise gave it the slightest bit of tang. The dill weed was a nice touch--I would have never thought to add it to eggs but it works.

This was pretty good and a something a little different for breakfast. I cut this down to one serving and it wasn't as "smoky" as I would have liked but overall, pretty good. I never used mayo in eggs before but it did make the eggs fluffy. I cut back on the garlic powder and added some cracked black pepper. I put this inside a tortilla along with some bacon and cheddar cheese for a nice breakfast wrap.

Oh, YUM!!!!! These eggs were DELICIOUS! I scaled the recipe back to just feed myself, but I have to admit, I didn't really measure all of the ingredients, more eye-balled them to taste. I did use the dried dill, but I wanna try them with my garden fresh dill next time. I think between the bacon drippings and the dill they did give the eggs a very slight smoky flavor, and the mayo and 1/2 & 1/2 gave a wonderful texture. All of the ingredients really paired well together. This really hit the spot for me this morning! I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
