MY REVIEW

Delicious! I've made this several times. It's good for any meal or occasion, and it's very easy to make.

This is a wonderful dish. I made it using eggs rather than egg substitute. It is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I also made it for a couple in my church. The husband had had surgery and we were providing meals for them.. They are big fans of blue cheese and really loved this dish. They ate the left overs for breakfast the next morning with fruit.

excellent! I have made this multiple times. So good! Just be prepared that it takes a good long while to bake in the oven, mine is in for as long as an hour to get it totally browned and solid in the middle.

Hubby and I thought the blue cheese flavor was a little too intense, so the next time, I used gorgonzola instead and we liked it much better.
