"Made for New Year's breakfast, my husband loved it! I use American/Swiss cheese and sprinkled some shredded Swiss cheese on top and served with hash browns. Filling and delicious!"

"The test kitchen has reviewed this recipe again and made a modification so the sandwiches wouldn't be soggy. The recipe now has 3 eggs and only 3/4 cup milk.

We apologize for the earlier oversight.

"made a double batch to feed the whole family. first batch terribly soggy on the bottom. second batch flipped 1/2 way through on broil. much better, but not worth making again."
