"I just made this for my breakfast. It is soooo good! Since it was just for me, I made 1/2 recipe and am saving the other 2 servings for the next 2 mornings. I had to judge the half amount of egg white but it would be impossible to be exact plus I left out the salt as the cheese was salty enough. Arthurian: take a look at the recipe again and you will find the egg white mentioned just below the 2 eggs. I will definitely make this again."

"This recipe calls for 2 eggs. However the directions say to combine the eggs and egg whites. There are no egg whites listed in the ingredients. Any suggestions?"
