    I love it and change it up by adding sausage or bacon instead of ham, veggies, or cream cheese instead of or in addition to cheddar. Sometimes I use blueberries, strawberries or even mango for a different taste.

    Great for a brunch because it takes no room in the oven and I typically entertain 35 on St. Patrick's Day. I just add veggies to taste [green for St. Patrick's Day or red at Christmas.

    This is a good recipe. The amount of green pepper (sweet or bell pepper) and onion are up to your tastes to increase it or decrease it to your liking.This is not an exact measurement like baking is...so dtracy9999 put in as much as you like , large & medium size are not exact amounts!!

    Here's a link ( http://www.culinarylore.com/measurements:onion-sizes-and-amounts-chopped ) to tell you about onion sizes and their amounts. Bell peppers are about the same.
