  • 1. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper until blended.

"For lower fat and cholesterol :

Use one egg :one white ratio , 6 eggs and 6 egg whites in this recipe.-Even less “yolks” when Doctor or your Dietician suggest..
Use 1% fat milk instead of full fat milk.
Use pan spray onstead of butter.
Use “Greek style yogurt” instead of Creme Fraiche
Made this way with no complaints, and happier arteries!
Wonderful combination of flavors...A few fresh diced tomatoes in the filling change the taste to "garden fresh" and lowers the calorie count as well. (Different not better.)"

"I would definitely make this again, but not when my third son is home, as he is deathly allergic to seafood. It is good though, and definitely a keeper."
