  1. Excellent base. I don't eat ham so omit the meat add drained spinach or broccoli to the dish and if I have them fresh tomatoes and a touch of basil. Makes a fantastic Summer Dinner.
  2. My hubby gets the credit for this one. Not only did I get to sleep in this morning I woke up to the fabulous smell of this in the oven! He made a few changes though. Used a garlic onion cheese we had in the frig that really helped flavour it up some and used - Read more ...
  3. Nice basic recipe. I made this for dinner so I added chopped onion chopped red pepper more cheeses (a combo of a few) & a few dashes of hot sauce. I used a 9x13 used 11 eggs 2.5 cups of hash browns 1.5 c. milk & extra of all the rest of ingreds.

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 - Read more ...
  8. Excellent breakfast! Can be made and baked the night before and reheated in the morning--perfect for company if you know you'll be rushed in the morning.

  9. Very quick and easy. Next time I might add green peppers and mushrooms. It's like a potato quiche.
