Fantastic! I added Asiago cheese (instead of parm) as well as some halved cherry tomatoes on top. I also finished it under the broiler to crisp and brown. Thanks! So glad I came across this recipe!
Delicioso! I love egg dishes, potatoes and capers, so this was a great dinner for me tonight. Simple and tasty. Thanks Kitten for yet another great recipe. Made for ZWT5 2009.
I made this for a great breakfast this morning!! I followed as written except that I had some ham that needed to be used so I sprinkled some ham in with the vegetable mixture. Then I added a cheddar/monterey jack cheese blend and did as Paula did and cooked a little more under the broiler. Thanks for sharing Kittencal!! Made for ZWT5!!
