A yummy mix of veggies and eggs, topped with cheese and hot sauce. You may also use Indian curry spice or garam masala instead of cayenne and omit the cheese if you like.

I used a medium sized organic red potato (I did dice it before cooking just to make it a little easier) a sweet onion two free range egg whites/two full eggs Romanita tomatoes and 2% sharp cheddar cheese. My kids didn't care for it but I reallu thought it was great. I had a little homemade salsa over the top and it was quite filling. YUM! NOTE: I did use just a touch of butter to "oil" my pan but you can use non stick low-cal spray or EVOO if you'd rather. Shoot bacon grease would be good too! Read More

Great for an easy breakfast! I had a leftover grilled potato that I wanted to use up and instead of the spinach I added some green pepper - very tasty. Read More

A very good idea that fit with the random food items I had lying about the apartment. A way to give it slightly more flavor is, instead of boiling the potato, dice into very small pieces and brown along with the onions and a bit of salt before adding the garlic. I suppose it changes the texture slightly, but the browning on the potato and slight caramelization of the onion adds a lot. Read More

It was awesome. Although I didn't have any potatoes so I used sweet potatoes instead. I also didn't have any spinach. I didn't use hot sauce and cayenne pepper because it would have been to spicy. I am 9 and this was a pretty hard recipe but then again I don't have a lot of experience. Read More

Salmon and eggs for Hubs this morning but this for me! I left out the potato cooked up some diced bacon then continued with the recipe leaving out the cayenne. LOVED it - the combination of ingredients and flavors (garlic is great in this!) were right up my alley. Being colorful and super-nutritious doesn't hurt either. I think the bacon however had a lot to do with the success of this for me! Read More

I needed a quick and easy dinner for my daughter and this fitted the bill. I used red onion and added some red pepper which I sauteed with the onion and garlic. I put it in a warm tortilla and she loved it. I tasted a bit of it and thought it was good too. Thanks. Read More

Had an overflow of bordeaux spinach in the garden and thought this recipe would be great to try. Very good & healthy. Only change made to recipe is chopping up potato & sautéing with onion before adding garlic. Read More

Really good. I would probably boil the potato for a bit longer next time I make it. The center pieces were a bit too firm for my tastes but overall a great easy recipe. Read More

YUMMY! I made enough veggies to refrigerate half so i could make this again later in the week. Quick and easy meal for a hungry vegetarian. I used red onion and red-skinned potatoes(with skins on) to make it a little healthier. But I skipped out on the hot spices. Still turned out great esp with the saltiness from the fresh cheddar. I can't wait to make this again! Read More
