Reviews for Breakfast Custard
"I just recently discovered this recipe and have made it twice already. I prepare a brunch every Sunday for my husband and me, and this is a nice addition to the menu!"
"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 is a wonderful egg breakfast dish. My kids love it and ask me to make it all the time."
"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."
