"love the recipe, had not thought to use ham, my family also loves it with fried up ground sausage. And the Monterey jack was excellent!"

"This is in my FB news feed today and I made it last night. Too funny. I cut the recipe in half for 2 of us but still used 4 eggs. It was good but I think, based on other comments, the baking temp should be a bit higher and time longer. I baked at 375 for 45 minutes. Next time I will try it with a cheddar and Monterey Jack mixture and perhaps bacon. I found the Monterey Jack a bit too mild. It's a good recipe to play with. You could add mushrooms and green or red pepper too."

"I used a roll of sage sausage in place of ham, also white onion not green onion (was out) and did not chill and it turned out great"

MY REVIEW

"Sorry, but I think it's laughable that anybody reading a recipe gets their eyebrows in a snit because they recognize it as having been published elsewhere. What are you people - the copyright police??!! This is a friendly, sharing down home web site, for goodness' sake! I seriously don't care where the recipe came from - EVER, for ANY reason! I guess I assumed that everybody else is reading the recipes because they love food, favorite recipes from different parts of the country, AND - maybe - because they're people who enjoy sharing good stuff rather than criticism. May it be so."
