I stumbled upon this while I was rummaging through my large collection of recipes. It turned out to be a real find! I like to serve it for brunch and even as a light supper.

"Great! I added 1/2 tsp onion powder, a couple shakes of pepper, and a bit more cheese, but overall it was a wonderful recipe!"
