I love breakfast for dinner, especially this combo of eggs with potatoes and cheese started in a skillet on the stovetop and then popped into the oven to bake. —Nadine Merheb, Tucson, Arizona

"My 5 year old wouldn't eat the eggs, but that's only because he only likes scrambled eggs or quiche, but my husband and I loved it. I will definitely make it again and I like that it's versatile: onions, peppers, sausage or bacon could easily be added if desired."

"Loved this! I added onion and peppers to the potatoes, but next time I'll wait until the potatoes are almost done because the onion and peppers got a bit too brown. I popped some bacon in the oven while this was cooking and served with toast. So good!"

"I used Potatoes O''Brien by Ore Ida in place of red potatoes. Just make sure the potatoes are soft before putting eggs in. Turned out real good!"
