We absolutely LOVE this! I've made it countless times since I found it on here about three years ago. Sometimes when I'm in a crunch for time and don't want to dice all of the veggies I will use the frozen onion and green pepper mix that you get at the grocery store. I've also drained canned tomatoes and used those in a rush too. It does taste best with fresh vegetables though. We are doing low carb now and I substitute cauliflower for the potatoes. It is just as delicious! I can probably say that I've cooked this recipe more than any other on this site. Thanks!
I have 35 chickens so needless to say i get 2or3 Dozen eggs a day I have been looking for a good recipe to use up some eggs well I found it here this recipe is just wonderful and absolutely delicous hope my spelling isnt to bad Thank-You for such a great recipe
This was wonderful. I used the bacon and a mix of Tex-Mex cheese instead of cheddar to add some zip. It was very simple to prepare and was enjoyed by all even my picky sons.
