Posting this for World Tour 2006; this is a great light dinner for 2 or three people and it of course is a wonderful breakfast. Not for the diet conscious by any means :-P

Sooo Yummy!! I kind of combined this recipe with a Paula Deen Egg recipe I found. I used some frozen diced potatoes with peppers and some crumbled bacon. To the eggs I added a dash of milk and dallop of sour cream. (I was supposed to add cheese once they cooked, but I forgot.) Even though I whisked the sour cream into the eggs, it still held together (kind of) and I could taste little bits of sour cream which was really good with the potatoes. One of my favorite parts was the lack of dishes I had to do when we were done!! I just wish I had made more, because there were no leftovers.

This is a hearty breakfast, very filling and a great country meal and I halved the recipe. It went together quickly as I pre cooked the potatoes last night and keep cooked bacon in the freezer. I served with toast as suggested and fresh melon. Thanks Janet!

Ahhh...wonderful comfort food in the morning! I used up left over potatoes for this yummy dish and my husband, my 5 year old and I devoured it. Thanks for a well written, easy to follow and delicious recipe!
