"This isn't just for camping and has everything in it we like. I do spice it to our tastes and at the end top it with a couple of handfuls of grated pepper Jack cheese, put the lid on just til the cheese melts. This makes enough for the 2 of us to have left overs the next night."

"I plan to make it even easier (and much faster) and use frozen diced hash brown potatoes! Can't wait to make it this week. After reading the reviews, I may add a bit of green pepper and some seasoning."

"This was just ok. I spent a lot of time chopping the onions and potatoes and then having to constantly stir while cooking so it was really more work than it seemed. Might or might not make again."

"My daughter and I do something similar on the grill. Cut up kiebasa, potatoes, add some carrots, onion, seasoning salt and some ice cubes (for moisture). It's done in about 40 minutes or so. No clean-up when done in a foil packet."

"Yummy recipe no matter what. I definitely "invented" my own version with bell peppers, all cooked on the stove top years ago. But, the suggestion from Arlene Lopez to turn leftovers into breakfast food with a fried egg on top is great! I can't wait to try this "reinvention" of an old time favorite!"

"I was very excited when I came across this recipe I had everything in the fridge or in the pantry and didnt have to run around to get the ingredients. The best part is that this entire meal fed over 6 people and even if I was to buy it all it would be very economical. I had just bought the sack of potatoes a 10 lbs bag $1.00 on sale and the turkey kielbasa was also on sale for $1.00 each. Corn... forget it, who does'nt have a can in the pantry right now??? I stocked up and later thought what am I going to do with all that. Well thank you for my answer. It was delicious I would definitely make it again and left overs for breakfast with a fried sunny side up sgg over the top of it mmmmmmmmm makes my mouth water."

"I make this when we have leftover hotdogs! Only changes: no potatoes, add canned pork n beans, a squirt of mustard, 2 of ketchup and a slice of American cheese. The boys love it so much, sometimes I have to make it by request as a main dish instead of waiting for leftovers! Add a veg and cornbread, ooooo, I'm drooling!!"
