MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 26, 2013

"This used to be such a staple, my husband got tired of it. I broke the rules by adding turkey Italian sausage, left out the onion & peppers, substituting real milk and shredded cheese. Also left out the egg whites & used 4 eggs. Kicked up the flavor by adding a tasty seasoning."
