    We have been making this dish for 20 years. It is “The Best Appetizer Ever” We love it for breakfast / brunch. Perfect blend of sweet and spicy. Everybody raves about it. Sometimes I substitute a 1/4 cup of jarlsberg cheese. Add 2 more eggs and bake for 50 minutes. I have been known to drive 50 mile to get a gar of Dave and Harry’s sweet pepper and onion relish. Nothing like it….No substitute. Yum Yum
    Also great on pork.
