"This recipe turned out beautifully, but my husband thought it was missing something, and that something was bacon. He suggested we sprinkle a little crumbled bacon on top along with the cheese. I will definitely be making this again!"

"I made this for breakfast and both my husband and I loved it! I've made it at least twice since then and will continue to make it frequently. I love the onions and the potato base."

"Excellent for breakfast. Also good for a light lunch or dinner served with a salad. I added spinach, but you could add any other vegetable. Enjoy!"
