    dojemi's Note:

    This recipe is from Everyday Food. The original recipe calls for 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary. I choose to omit it. Being onion lovers, I added a whole onion rather than 1/2 as the recipe stipulated. NOTE: It's okay if potatoes are not cooked evenly. Some will be browned; others only transparent. The original recipe suggests using an 8-inch skillet.

      My husband loved this and I loved that it was healthy. I sauteed the peppers and onions for 10 minutes as we don't like them crunchy; next time I would add fresh garlic. I would also use one large potato instead of two - I ended up using a 12" skillet to accommodate all of the potatoes and then transferred everything to a 10" skillet for baking. I would either add a creamy cheese (goat cheese, cream cheese, even a bit of light velveeta, to add creaminess to the dish which I found a little dry, or cook for the lower end of the suggested time - 15 or 16 minutes. Finally the addition of fresh herbs - chives, dill, parsley would add a nice punch.

      Because we've switched to low-gi eating, I swapped out the potatoes for white-flesh sweet potatoes and used mostly egg beaters in place of about 7 of of the eggs. Recipe was delicious! And would have been fabulous just as written as well - even more fabulous than what I cooked. The simplicity of dojemi's ingredients is the key - so simple and yummy!

      Oops. I think I rated this without comment, and I really wanted to comment. This is fabulous! The height of simplicity, but with excellent flavor. From start to table it took me 30 minutes. I love the fact that there is no milk required so low-fat. The only thing I did differently was adding around a cup of chunky salsa instead of the red peppers, and I used green onion mixed in with the eggs instead of regular onion. The variations you could do with this recipe are endless. A sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top finishes it off nicely. Thanks so much!
