I have been making this dish for a long time now! It is wonderful! I do add 2 extra eggs and 1/2 a cup of milk. I have left the peppers out as well if I didnt have any on hand. I also slice the potatoes with my grater, they work out much better this way. All in all and excellent dish when a few modifications are done! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
Large baking potatoes might be the wrong description...I used 3 large ones and it was too many potatoes. The eggs wouldn't set as the dish was too thick. I dumped it onto a cookie sheet finally and finished it that way. It was tasty, but use smaller potatoes or a larger pan!
Definitely a keeper! Great for substitutions too. Used some thawed french fries in place of diced potatoes. Took advice of earlier poster and cooked bacon first and used bacon drippings to saute onion, red pepper, garlic and potatoes.
Parchment paper is a must for a non-stick flip. Mine worked perfectly. Can't wait to put it in the weekend rotation!
Stuff you already have...love this recipe. It will wow you and guest. If you don't have the par. paper just do the recipe backwards...
This is my recipe...the key to non sticking cheese is parchment paper..not wax paper...I have never had a problem with the cheese sticking :)
My family loves this. We like to have "Breakfast" for dinner. This is perfect for that. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan.
I changed the order of the ingredients and did not flip over the "cake" after it was done. I used sliced Simply Potatoes, fried to a golden brown, as the crust. Then I topped with the sauteed onions, pepper and garlic, then the bacon and cheese. I used 6 eggs and 1/2 cup half 'n' half. Delicious! Next time I will lightly salt the potatoes after they have fried.
I really liked this and was impressed with the presentation. I did not have any troubles with the cheese sticking to the parchment paper. I did a few things differently: I used one more egg and next time I think I may use even more eggs to make it a little more moist (maybe add a little more milk too). I thinly sliced the potatoes and left out the peppers. I used garlic powder and onion powder in the potatoes for a little milder garlic/onion flavor. I only used 8 pieces of bacon, which I thought was plenty. I baked it in a 8x8 square pan and added a little more grated cheese after I poured the egg over. All in all, this was tasty, unique and filling.
