      This recipe was exactly what I was looking for! A good starting point for what I had available. I used some pan fried potatoes and onions, cheddar cheese, a little cottage cheese and some turkey bacon. Came out great! I put foil around the edges of my crust so it wouldn't over bake. I'll be making this again!
