    My grandmother used to make this for my granddad. She always believed in hearty breakfasts. I only make this about once a year because it is not very healthy but nonetheless, it is delicious.

      This recipe brought back so many memories of my Dad making this on a weekend morning. He made it the way his grandma used to make it for him which is quite similar to the recipe. I made this for a lazy weekend dinner using your recipe as a guide and substituting for things I remember Dad putting in. This used to be a meal where you used up the leftovers from the night before to make a hearty breakfast for the farmers. It's really good with leftover roast pumpkin and potato from the roast dinner the day before with a few peas thrown in for good measure. I made it with potatoes as stated in the recipe, it always had potatoes, and sub peas for the peppers. Great recipe, thanks for posting it!

      This is a winner! My hubby, who loves anything with bacon grease in it, wolfed it down. Cooking the potatoes first, really made them tender and easy to brown. This will be a weekend brunch recipe for us. Thanks,Nurse Di.
