"I cut the recipe in half and added sautéed onion, sliced carrots and jalapenos. I substituted shredded Swiss cheese for the cheddar cheese; and served it for dinner with veggie sausage links and toast. Delicious."

"this was very good-light and fluffy. I made a 1/2 batch and it worked out fine. I'll try cutting down on the butter just to save a few calories next time."
