This is my adaptation of a recipe from Dana Carpender's "500 Low-Carb Recipes", page 110. Her version made one very large serving, but it was a bit carby for me at 7 net carbs so I came up with a 2-serving version using less onion and a couple less eggs. The servings are still quite large. If you really like hot dogs and eggs, you'll probably like this. I can take or leave both, but this made a satisfying breakfast.
