    It was really good but I think I might add crumbled up bacon and mushrooms to it next time. There's a lot of prep time and a lot of eggs, but worth it. The red pepper sauce is a must... Very good.

    I thought this was great. It would be bland without the red pepper sauce, though. I did have a hard time getting all of the potatoes browned in a 10 inch pan. Oh, well. It still tasted good.

    I felt it needed something else so I added a few onions to give more flavor to the potatoes and spinach. May add some ham next time. Liked the way it puffed up under the broiler, nice texture with the potatoes cut thin on a mandoline.

    This has become a weekly favorite. Love how the tortilla puffs in the oven! Sauce is delicious. I always make extra

    I added some sauteed onions and mushrooms, but otherwise followed the recipe as is. Turned out both beautiful and delicious. Will definitely make again either for breakfast or dinner.

    This was overall pretty bland, but the sauce was great. I had to saute the potatoes for probably double the time in the recipe to get them browned. I also used swiss chard instead of spinach. I think with a little more seasoning and maybe onions, this would be really good. That red pepper sauce is fantastic though. I served it with pieces of warm pita bread.

    A simple vegetarian dinner that's perfect for a week night. The sauce is outstanding!

    Overall this is not a "bad" dish, but it lacks some pizzaz and there are WAY too many potatoes in this dish as written. This dish is basically a fritatta so I intended as quick weekday breakfasts throughout the week for my husband and I. For ease of my planning, I just mixed the red pepper sauce into the whisked eggs and cooked all together. I still thought it a bit bland, so don't omit the red pepper sauce at all as much of the flavor comes from this mixture. Eating my first piece this morning, I wanted some either meat or cheese or both to be in this dish and definitely less potato; it overwhelmed the dish. It was easy to make, so I believe that I would make a few tweaks (halve the amount of potatoes, add some diced ham and smoked gouda) to see if we enjoyed better. If not, this one will have to be just one of those dishes that doesn't make it to the 'keeper" list.
