    Followed recipe except used frozen diced potatoes instead of regular potatoes. Ended up with very fluffy delicious eggs that the whole family enjoyed.

    In a hurry for dinner? Need to use up some ham? This brunch dish cooks up quickly and can be a tasty dinner, too. We substituted chopped zucchini for the peppers and added a few more cloves of garlic. There were no leftovers!

    One of my favorites for breakfast dinners too. I also do the potatoes different though. I cut them up and fry them in the pan until soft and then do the peppers and continue on with the recipe.
