"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."
