This was nice. I omitted the potatoes and black pepper and subbed goat cheese for Parmesan as per diet restrictions, and it was still good. I have a feeling you could add or subtract a lot from the recipe and still it would taste good. I would have subbed in sweet potatoes, but I didn't have any on hand. I'll try it next time.
Very tasty recipe. I substituted bacon for sausage and used frozen hashbrowns in place of the potatoe (added to bacon while cooking to brown up). Also used some grated havarti cheese in place of some of the parmesan.
