This was terrific! I made it for Mother's Day and everyone was raving. As a bonus, it reheated nicely in the microwave a few days later, too. The pepper seemed like way too much after I mixed it in. Luckily, like many spices it floats, so I let it stick to the liquid measuring cup I used to transfer the egg mixture from the bowl to the casserole dish and then rinsed the cup between transfers. I'm so glad I did - most of the pepper was removed that way, and I thought it still had a smidgeon too much. It was still wonderful, though, so it's worth 5 stars in spite of that one little thing.
This is great! I love the twist of pouring the egg mixture on top of the rest of the dish, and the green pepper gives it a nice presentation. Thanks for sharing!
I made this for a women's brunch and they loved it. I made it with Chorizo whiched turned out excellent!!!! this was added to our church's "good" recipe list! =)
