I really liked this, but I also like bell peppers. I used the 2 pan method, as it seemed that a nice thick roue would be important. It is a bit too complex to make for breakfast, but would be perfect for a brunch, or a luncheon or dinner party. I liked the fact that since the eggs were already hard-boiled and it was a casserole, timing wasn't the issue it usually is when you make eggs for a crowd.

I used Parsley's method of making this and it worked very well. I used all of the peppers that I had (about 2/3 the ask for amount) and I thought that was actually a good amount. Over all this was delicious, simple and very well liked. We made a dinner out of it with whole wheat toast and sliced cantaloupe.

I enjoyed this for breakfast (served over leftover rice) but the reviews from my family were mixed so I have "averaged" the reviews. The pepper flavor was just a little too strong, and I used milder red bell peppers. Next time I would use reduce the pepper & increase the onion & garlic, and also try another reviewer's great suggestion for using one pan, instead of getting 2 skillets dirty.
