"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."

"I have been making this recipe for years. The only difference is I use either canned potatoes or thawed hashbrowns to cut down on the prep and cooking time. I have also used colby jack cheese which was delicious as well."
