    Chef Dudo's Note:

    This came to me in an e-mail. As we had guests at the moment I decided to try the recipe. Served it for breakfast but it's equally good as lunch. Doesn't take long to make either.

      Delicious! I used red potatoes (unpeeled) which I cut into chunks. Also, I parboiled the potatoes about 5 to 7 mins. until almost done before adding to the pan with the onions and peppers. I served this topped with sour cream and salsa. This would also be great with fresh mushrooms, tomatoes, ham, etc. My family loved this and gave it 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this fast and easy recipe.

      Great flavor -- I really enjoyed this dish. I did add a quarter cup of milk to the egg mixture since the eggs are scrambled (I used 6 eggs.) Since I live at high altitude, potatoes take a long time to cook, even diced, so I'm going to bake them for a half an hour next time before I dice them. And I'll definetely make this delicious dish soon! Thanks for posting, Chef Dudo!
