My mom used to make this when I was a child and I could eat the whole skillet full...sometimes when the garden is overflowing I'll eat only this for my lunches.

This was SCRUMPTIOUS! Oh my goodness...what a wonderful change from bland! Even the pickiest of eaters would enjoy this recipe. Can't wait for my grandsons to try it! I used Truvia for the sweetner and followed the recipe as given except in addition to ground pepper, I added a bit of California Style Lemon Pepper. It was SO yummy!!! Thanks for sharing!
