Just a question. Why would your pan need to be oven proof if you never even stick it in the oven?

This was absolutely delicious. In order to save time I used hash browns instead of dicing my own red potatoes, and based on our preferences I used a red bell pepper instead of green, and both my husband and myself thought that it was an awesome breakfast! I did wonder however why the recipe specifically called for an ovenproof skillet when it is cooked entirely on the stove.

I really liked this, esp since I can serve the eggs runny. It's good with fried potato chunks in it, or served with Leek

Halves easily for two but husband said he could have eaten more. LOVED the medley of flavors- so easy to make, looks were just as good as taste. Plan to share this recipe with family AND make it again. Thanks for sharing Joyce!

This recipe is the way my dad made scrambled eggs for us on Saturday mornings after we came in from fishing! As a few other reviewers said, he'd salt & pepper the potatoes as they cooked in the bacon grease. Oh, how I miss this breakfast! I make it for my family, but somehow, it doesn't taste as good as my dad's. There's no substitute ingredient for a dad's love!

I will make this again but would salt and pepper the potatoes as they are cooking and add some garlic in with the onion.

I have made this several times and love it each and every time. I went to a brunch and made this and all 14 women wanted a copy. It is just that fantastic!! I add a little less green pepper. You must try tis one.
