"This was so delicious and such a quick and wasy recipe. We are the type of family to have breakfast for dinner and this meal was definitely filling enought to be able to have it for dinner. Even our picky eater loved it!"

"I make this recipe a lot at our house! I use smoked sausage or kielbasas, if there are some leftover corn or green beans from a previous meal I toss them in too! This is a very versatile recipe. Skip C."

"I prepared this dish this morning and declared it a winner. I halved the recipe for my husband and myself. I made a few substitutions such as using 3 eggs and egg beaters equivalent to 3 eggs, turkey sausage links, and 2% sharp Cheddar cheese. It tasted delicious and no one would be the wiser with the low fat ingredients. We will definitely have this again. Here is a link to my review and photos."
