Enjoyed the recipe, however, we needed to adjust a couple things. We don't use much salt so cut back seeing as how there were 2 salt based spices. Next time I'd either cut back more in the onion salt or sub in garlic powder for the garlic salt. Also, I didn't want to use regular potatoe so I used frozen hashbrowns (thawed) instead. We liked it & found it very filling.
Great breakfast. I was out of mushrooms (darn it). I made two servings so I was able to make it all in one batch. Served with salsa on the side, another good one, lainey. made for star tag.
Made this for three of us for a late breakfast!! I used a large leftover baked potato that I saved from the other night and all the other ingredients as written except the green pepper as we didn't have it on hand. What a great filling and flavorful breakfast/lunch for a Sunday!! Thanks for sharing Lainey!! Made for Gimme 5 Tag!!
