Very good and filling for a leisurely weekend breakfast. The only change I made was to substitute green pepper for the onions. Leftovers are good reaheated in the MW the next day, too.

Made for Spring PAC 2008. This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used more cheese then the recipe called for because we like lots of cheese. I also used frozen potatoes with onions and peppers so I didn't add the chopped onion. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Nice yummy breakfast that my whole family enjoyed.
