This was awesome!! Definitely making again. I think I'll had some banana peppers next time.
Gailann this dish is a winner, hands down. Perfect comfort food; spicy sausage, peppers and onions smoothered in cheese than covered with eggs. What a great meal it was. I really enjoyed the textures in the dish, the light fluffy eggs, the ooey gooey cheese and the spicy spicy sausage. Quick and easy to make, it was the perfect dinner with a simple salad and some cucumbers and sliced bananas. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for Pac - Fall - 2011.
