    I made this for a brunch and it got rave reviews. I was a little worried when my pie plate was mostly filled with cheese that it wouldn't hold together but it was fine. The chiles and cheese together were divine!

    Wonderfully easy dish with excellent flavor. I used my homemade canned salsa in the recipe. This is a perfectly simple egg dish for breakfast. We served it with my Pumpkin Cornmeal Muffins (recipe #80705) and Fruit Compote (recipe #75473) for a simple weeknight supper. This is our traditional menu for breakfast on Thanksgiving, too.

<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
