"My son introduced me to his version of this recipe a few months ago. He prefers to scramble the eggs and adds any chopped vegetables that he has on hand. This is a great way to stretch your eggs. He is on a budget so only uses 2 eggs and a little water whisked together and poured over the other veggies after they have cooked a little. There's so much of the other ingredients you don't miss the eggs."

"I would try this recipe a little different. Instead of putting my eggs in the skillet with the pototoes and putting them in the broiler. I would just cook them by themselves and then put them on top. The eggs were rubbery but they probably cooked to long. It did need some spice.... I love the flavor of the different kind of pototoes :)"

"Easy & delicious. Everyone in my family loves it. I have to make 2 batches. We eat it all the time, usually for supper."

"Eggs turned out rubbery. Potatoes stuck to the bottom of the skillet horribly, even with more oil and more stirring and deglazing. Needed something green, like a whole green bell pepper, diced. It also needed a lot more salt and pepper than called for."
