We tried this recipe for Sunday Brunch and scaled it down to just 3, but it fed us(my wife , son and I) and also my wifes grandmother, and we all loved it! I also added some onion to the bacon grease before I put in the potatoes and it tasted great. My wifes grandmother put some salsa on her's and liked that with it too. Excellent!


why is this hiding in the christmas section? It is very good! Per others, I added some diced onions to the potato saute apprx halfway through cooking and during the last 5-7 min, added some fresh, chopped broccoli. I also added a little milk to the egg mix and sprinkled some cheddar cheese to melt when all was done. Very tasty! Thanks Vel for the tasty breakfast to start our day!!


Not the absolute best thing we've ever had, but it was fun since it combined out usual once a week breakfast items (scrambled eggs w/cheese, bacon & hashbrowns) into one dish. I also added a little onion and wish I had actually added more. I'd make it again, but add onion and maybe a few other items to give it more flavor.
