"This recipe is just too ridiculous. Don't waste your time."

"I found this recipe on Taste of Home earlier and made it for dinner actually. We really liked it. Although it could make 6 servings, they are small and would not feed more than 4 people and only then if you serve with rolls and butter or something else. I served with a big bowl of taco chips on the table and salsa. I also used frozen broccoli which I fixed in the microwave. I did use a skillet with a handle that you can put in the oven because we do not like runny eggs here so I put this in a high oven, about 400, for about 10 minutes at the end."
