This is a very filling and tastefully seasoned breakfast dish for groups or large families. I doubted that I would like the salmon, but it really makes this dish stand out and is suitable for vegetarians who eat fish. I prefer this with the swiss cheese instead of monterey jack. Enjoy!

This is so good! I've been making it for years. I sometimes use half mozzarella and half swiss cheese. Must like salmon
