Easy prep and it was pretty good, but it could have done with more herbs and/or spices. I thought it was pretty bland.

Pretty good! I think I would have preferred a different kind of meat, but the ham was okay,

I really liked this - I used bacon instead of ham. Definitely handy in a pinch.

Quite good! I wish it was a bit more leftover-friendly ... my eggs seem to have re-liquified in the fridge overnight. But still quite good!
