    I increased recipe by 1/2 and baked in 13x 9 pan. I increased eggs to 14, used 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup half half,3 cups frozen shredded potatoes and about 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar. Instead of ham, I cooked a pound of bacon and crumbled it and did not completely drain the grease. I also chopped a green pepper and vidalia onion and lightly sauteed in butter. I think I used about 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. I generously buttered the 13 x 9 pan before adding ingredients - I covered and refrigerated overnight. Then took out of refrigerator about 20 minutes before cooking it. Everyone raved about it - I think sauteed mushrooms would also be good as would drained chili peppers.

    My family loves this recipe! I made it more like a western/southwest omelet with lots of sauteed veggies like green pepper, onion and zucchini, and salsa. I also used sharp cheddar cheese and added some hot pepper cheese to spice it up. It's a great basic recipe to start with, and then you can add whatever your family likes. My daughter requests this all the time!  -  11 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I read all the reviews and decided to sautee 1/4 onion , 1/3 each of green and red peppers and added red pepper flakes. I baked it in a 9 X 13 pan for about 30 mins or so. Might try making it with pepper jack cheese with salsa on the side. Can't wait to try this with sausage.  -  28 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
