"I made this and cut back the cream cheese to 1 1/2 packages and added a little celery seed and celery salt. It comes out nice and creamy."

"Way too much cream cheese. Couldn't taste the eggs at all. Im sorry but this was so tasteless. Don't believe I will make it again."

"I couldn't believe how BLAND this recipe was. I had to doctor it up with spicy brown mustard, pickle relish, and more salt before it tasted like anything."
