MY REVIEW

I added chopped red bell peppers and garlic powder to the eggs mixture. It turned out beautifully. My family loved it. A great dish to impress your guests, too. It's a keeper.

This is so delicious and versatile. I didn't have bacon so used sausage and it was perfect. Great way to use up some spinich. I added extra seasoning and also seasoned the hash brown crust. Yummy!!

Reviewed Jun. 6, 2012

This recipe was a great way to use up spinach left in the "bottom of the bag." Nobody knew the difference and the recipe was terrific. I also used refrigerated potato shreds (leftovers too!) and they worked fine. A definate keeper - and just like the picture, oranges make a good side.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2011

Very good! Had to use frozen spinach but still turned out good. I sauteed the frozen spinach with the onion & also some red pepper and chopped mushrooms. Was making this for dinner so I did double the eggs to make it more filling. Also thought it needed a little more seasoning, so I would recommend adding some seasoned salt.

The family loved this one. I didn't have bacon so I diced bologna and cooked it with the onion and it was delicious. next time we'll try the bacon.
