"My mom used to make this every Sunday and I continued the tradition. My family loves it! Now my daughter makes it for her family and my son-in-law thinks she is a great cook! You may also add cooked bacon, ham or sausage into the mix if you wish."

Uncooked potatoes can take a long time to cook, esspecially compared to the green peppers and onions. THEREFORE, I cubed and cooked the potatoes first (in some veg oil instead of butter), added the green peppers, onions (as well as some fresh mushrooms, cooked/cubed ham and chopped broccoli) once the potatoes were almost done. Then, I added apprx 1/4c milk to the beaten eggs and poured overall, flipping to cook. Sprinkled some sharp cheddar cheese overall. Predictable taste but good none-the-less. Thanks Maggie.


This recipe is great and couldn't be simpler. My brother introduced me to it, although he calls it a breakfast skillet since he makes everything in one pan. We will also add bacon, sausage or ham depending on what is in the fridge. Basically you can throw just about anything you want in. We have also added cheese, tomatoes, green onions, and mushrooms. It is really open to anything you want.

great breakfast fare!! we did cheat a little and use the frozen ore ida obrien potatoes and added some chopped canadian bacon too. Let the spuds get extra crispy before you pour the eggs on.. even better!
