I love making this when there is a large family gathering. Instead of many pots & pans it only takes 2. Possibly 3 if you want to smother it in peppered cream gravy! You can make this in a large skillet but I prefer a griddle, easier to turn when it's time. As far as meats or vegetables go its made with what you like & the amount is up to you! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
