I normally scale this to serve 6 and add some milk (1/4 cup) to the battered egg mix to make it fluffier. As others have stated I have also used sausage chopped green bell peppers or a jar of drained diced pimentos. If I'm REALLY lazy but my family is begging for some breakfast I'll used a package of frozen hashbrowns instead and add the eggs once the hasbrowns are done and when the eggs are almost done I'll add the bacon or sausage and other veggies then. If you flip carefully (for even cooking) you can practically cut out pizza-like slices right from your pan to serve. A different spin to an omlette! Thanks LaDonna! Read More

Replaced garlic salt w/garlic powder. The lid melting the cheese also softened the crisp crumbled bacon. Next time I will add the crisp bacon after the cheese has been melted and the lid has been removed. Read More

This was a great basic recipe. Like others, I added a few touches of my own with onions and playing around with the seasonings a bit. For those previous reviews that commented negatively about how lame this site is and how the recipes suck...don't use the site! If you don't like what it offers, go elsewhere rather than bagging on people's recipes- cooking requires tweaking to coincide with your own personal preference for taste. Thank you for the idea, LaDonna! Read More

This was really good and so simple to do. I was looking for a frittata recipe when I found this. Great flavor and was an easy meal in one. I liked that it only dirtied 1 skillet. I put the diced potatoes in the microwave for a couple of minutes to partially cook them while the bacon was cooking to reduce cook time on the stovetop. My guys both said although they liked this they preferred all their stuff separate (hash browns scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon). I loved this just as it is though and would have given this 5 stars b/c I'm a southern gal and this is down home southern cookin' for sure! I only had to make one change and that was to add a smidge of minced garlic and a pinch of kosher salt instead of the garlic salt. I only used enough bacon grease to coat the potatoes heavily and not all that was reserved. I did add 1 more potato 2 slices bacon and 2 more eggs to feed 3 of us. It made enough for 4. Thanks LaDonna for a great meal. Read More

Pretty delicious. I gave this 4 stars because I had to add quite a few more spices for flavor. I doubled the recipe and found that the 1/4 tsp of salt & pepper did hardly anything for the skillet. I also omitted the bacon (didn't have any on hand and I'm a vegetarian). I used rosemary olive oil to fry up the potatoes instead of the bacon grease. It made my house smell great! I served it with english muffins. It was an overall very yummy and satisfying dish. Will make again! Read More

Added some green pepper sweet onion (extra bacon) and wow. This is good good stuff. We used Yukon Gold potatoes to give it a buttery delicious flavor. Read More

I used vegetarian bacon and had to add extra spices to make up for the lack of flavor. Also added mushrooms and onions which I cooked separately and added at the end. Great food to feed a hungover husband on a Sunday morning!:) Read More
