Rosa, I have made this many times and I use whatever potatoes we have. The reds give a good color but my personal favorite is Yukon gold because I love the flavor. I have even used frozen hash browns if I have them. It still turns out great.

Hello there, just curious but do the potatoes necessarily need to be red potatoes ? could they just be regular , thanks so much it looks amazing!

Will try to get it made at home-hope so many eggs dont add up to my cholestorol-maybe will reduce a egg or two-lovely recipe

I used unpeeled red potatoes, a small onion instead of garlic added when potatoes were almost done on stovetop. I added some cut up raw asparagus as it was going into the oven. Delicious!

We used a frozen potato/pepper o'brien mix to make this today. Followed the recipe but for adding 1 tsp dried oregano, and using just 6 eggs (2 in 2 of the egg wells, and 1 in the other 2 wells). What an incredibly yummy dish! Served with some chunky salsa, but I don't think any of us used it.I'm pretty sure we'll be making this many times!

I do this all the time, (without the cheese though) but without the oven. On medium heat, I add the eggs & put the lid on the skillet. After a minute or two, I add an ounce or so of cold water, recover & when the eggs are soft basted, it's time to eat!

We loved this. I made half the recipe and subbed some frozen hashbrown potatoes that I needed to use up. I love one pan meals!

My 5 year old wouldn't eat the eggs, but that's only because he only likes scrambled eggs or quiche, but my husband and I loved it. I will definitely make it again and I like that it's versatile: onions, peppers, sausage or bacon could easily be added if desired.
