"This could really use some more flavor. Next time I will be adding some garlic or seasoned salt to it. Very bland even with the peppers and onions."

"I make this recipe a lot at our house! I use smoked sausage or kielbasas, if there are some leftover corn or green beans from a previous meal I toss them in too! This is a very versatile recipe. Skip C."

"I prepared this dish this morning and declared it a winner. I halved the recipe for my husband and myself. I made a few substitutions such as using 3 eggs and egg beaters equivalent to 3 eggs, turkey sausage links, and 2% sharp Cheddar cheese. It tasted delicious and no one would be the wiser with the low fat ingredients. We will definitely have this again."

"Delicious! Great for breakfast lovers! I use one 32 ounce package of hash browns. My whole family loves this. You could change the ingredients to suit your taste... ham instead of sausage, other vegetables, etc."

"12 eggs wow !!

But I guess that does make a large quantity of hash. Sounds good, I'll have to try it here at home as well."
