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!!
Made this using egg substitute for the eggs, the potato was well scubbed and unpeeled, other than that the only thing I did was to put it under the broiler for a few minutes to brown lightly before serving. This is a very attractive dish and was great for Sunday morning brunch.
