I apologize to the writer of this recipe and all the others who tried it and liked it. I agree with unter der lanterne, I was rude and I am sorry.

Added some green pepper, sweet onion, (extra bacon) and wow. This is good good stuff. We used Yukon Gold potatoes to give it a buttery delicious flavor.

Grew up on this breakfast!! These days I add chopped onion (1/2) and occassionally some chopped green and red pepper. Browned sausage is a good addition too. the combos are endless.
