No matter the time of day, there's nothing nicer than an easy egg dish. Featuring satisfying ingredients like Canadian bacon and cheese, this entree is really special. I think you'll agree.

"I have been making this recipe for years...a couple of modifications I have made to the recipe are I leave out the Parm and the parsley. It is true the eggs slide around but if you make a little box for them by tearing up the swiss cheese they stay just fine. Also you need to use the swiss cheese that is wrapped in individual slices. The taste and texture of the cheese sauce is better when you use the "processed" cheese. It is very good and is a favorite of my husbands for any meal also leftovers are even better the next day."

"the stars aren't working. I would give this 3 stars. The recipe is a disaster but the result was very good and rich. Way too much cream; the eggs don't want to 'sit' on top of the cheese, they slide off; the baking time cooked the yolks and the whites weren't set; coming out of the pan the eggs slipped off the bacon/cheese......."

"I made this recipe for Easter breakfast just for my husband and I. It is super easy and quick but the baking time is off. We like runny yolks and they were hard. I would say 6 minutes and 3-4 minutes would work. The flavor is great."
