    Rahnee64.......How long did you cook it (@ 400 deg.)? Doing it in the oven looks as if it'd be a much easier task; the ingredients look wonderful though. I'm anxious to try it

    I have a large family(and I like meals with leftovers). So here are the changes I made. First, I used a greased 13×9 baking dish. Second, 1 potato isn't enough so added 2 more. Third, we don't really like green peppers, so I used a sweet red pepper. Fourth, I layered the ingredients instead of mixing everything together. Next, I baked in the oven at 400°. And lastly, for the final minutes of baking, I thinly sliced a large tomato on top. This recipe is a good base to customize to your liking.
