We had this for breakfast this morning. The original recipe is from a local cookbook dedicated to the memory of a local teenager that died from a heart attack, Patrick W. Cox. I have made various changes in the original, so I hope you like it. We did.

Good stuff! Nice way to start the day. I made a few changes based on personal preferences... I baked the diced potato, coated with a little bit of olive oil. I chopped up the baby portabellas and threw them in for a quick saute at the end of browning the sausage, which I patted dry to get rid of the excess grease. I used the lower amount of eggs and less cheese and omitted the salt. Yum! Thanks for sharing!

DELICIOUS doesn't do this justice! I used frozen hash-brown potatoes which went very quick, so skipped that whole part about browning them. Used a can of mushrooms, cuz that's what I have on hand. Otherwise, kept everything else the same. I used six eggies. Nice brekky, filling and fragrant! *Aus/NZ Swap #14*
