    I just recently discovered this recipe and have made it twice already. I prepare a brunch every Sunday for my husband and me, and this is a nice addition to the menu!

    I cut the recipe in half and added sautéed onion, sliced carrots and jalapenos. I substituted shredded Swiss cheese for the cheddar cheese; and served it for dinner with veggie sausage links and toast. Delicious.

    This is a wonderful egg breakfast dish. My kids love it and ask me to make it all the time.

    this was very good-light and fluffy. I made a 1/2 batch and it worked out fine. I'll try cutting down on the butter just to save a few calories next time.
