I like corned beef, but my family doesn't so I made this recipe substituting chopped leftover roast beef. They thought it was great, but had I made it with the corned beef I know I would have liked it even better. The cajun seasoning on the eggs is a must as they are very bland by themselves. It "marries" the seasoning to the rest of the dish. One mistake I made was to put a lid on the pan partway through cooking. I thought it might dry out too fast if I didn't, but it ended up making it a little too mushy. Should have followed the recipe on that part.

Definitely a keeper! Instead of poaching the eggs, I scrambled them. And I misread the ingredients when I was going trough them and instead of using green onion, I tossed in an entire bag of frozen onion, green & red pepper! Turned out great! =) Thanks for the recipe!
