This was tasty. I used quite a bit more bacon than it called for. Next time I’ll probably use half again as much cheese and an extra egg, just for our taste.

This was quick and easy and wonderful! We didn’t have brocolli but we do have tons of peppers growing out back, so we substituted peppers. We will definitely be making this again and again!
