Prepared with flavorful ham and sour cream, this egg mixture bakes up to a fluffy finish.

"The recipie sounded a little too boring, so I added 1/4 cup each of chopped sweet onions, chopped mushrooms, and chopped mixed (yellow, red, greed) bell peppers. I also added 1 tsp of seasoned salt to the mixture. Finally, 5 min before the end of cooking (it took 20 extra minutes to cook), I topped it off with 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. It turned out really yummy and I will make it again!"

I also had to cook quite a bit longer. We found it to be a bit bland.

I substituted breakfast sausage for ham. Also, I think a whole cup of sour cream is overkill. The original recipe was pretty bland to me, so I added chives, basil, and garlic to the sour cream.

Tried this recipe for breakfast this morning, and our family loves it! It is like a wonderful fluffy frittata. It is one of those great starter recipes that you can customize to your own tastes. Like today we used spam instead of ham, since that is what we had on hand, and next time we plan to add some veggies. Delicious:)

Excellent and easy! It easily served six friends for brunch (with fruit/English muffins). I added a handful of shredded cheese, too.

I tried it, but found it too airy for my family's taste. I did have to cook it 10-12 min longer to firm the eggs.

Does the sour cream have to be regular or can it be light or fat free sour cream?

Tried this yesterday, and had to make part of it with just cheese for someone that doesn't eat ham. We all LOVED it! I made it in a large and a small cast iron frying pan, and it was perfectly cooked on the base. I did leave it in the oven for about 10 minutes longer than you suggested. We are looking forward to making it again, using different fillings each time. Thank you for sharing this ...

Soooo good. I did have to bake it twice as long as the recipe called for.
