Meet the Cook: Youngsters who won't eat eggs cooked the traditional ways "go crazy" for this breakfast dish. I should know - I have four children, ages 13 and 17. -Catherine Buehre, Weeping Water, Nebraska

"Although the flavor was very good, this recipe is not one I will make again. The bread was very soggy and took away from the taste. I should have read the reviews first before making it. The ingredients sounded so good is why I tried it but I have to say I was very disappointed. Since it made two 8 by 8 pans, I gave one to my daughter and family and they share the same conclusion ... just way too soggy."

"This recipe calls for lots of liquid- I cooked it way longer than it called for and the bread was still soggy- YUCK"
