"This was so good. My boyfriend had 3 helpings and another serving for lunch the next day. Definitely will make this again."

"I never got to taste this, but my family did and they apparently loved it and ate the whole thing. Was very easy and simple and had good old-fashioned flavors that most everyone loves. I did not have green pepper on hand so in place of that I used some fresh snipped chives for color which worked great. However, the one problem I had was that even keeping the skillet on the lowest heat possible and cooking it for the minimum time it burnt to the pan and I ended up scraping the stuff on the bottom into the trash. I checked the instructions and there was no direction on what kind of skillet to use. I used a cast iron skillet. Other than that, good recipe."
