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

"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 LOVE this recipe! I used baked potatoes from the night before...they fry up fast and are a great way to use up leftovers...I also used dried cilantro since I didn't have any parsley. This is so easy...a go to recipe for sure...think I'll add bacon next time...but it is excellent without it!"

"As soon as you figure out just how to get the eggs done right, this dish becomes a regular! I like to saute ham, peppers and onions and add them to the mix."

"I've made this a few times after seeing it in the magazine. HOLY COW is it good! It has taken me a few tries to know exactly how long to cook it to get to the eggs to the desired doneness but once I found that "sweet spot", I was totally in love!"

Reviewed Nov. 14, 2013

"I make this a lot from a recipe of my mom's. It's almost the same except I scramble the eggs and throw in leftover ham or corned beef (if there is any). I don't bake it, just do the skillet thing. Sometimes I'll splurge and use bacon. I love it. It's so filling that if I have this for "brunch," I don't need to eat supper."

"Easy and tasty. I don't think there's enough potatoes for four servings... I made it with just 4 eggs and called it two servings.

Suggestion: substitute 1 tsp seasoned salt for the salt & pepper."
