    I made this for family that came in town to stay with us. I got compliments on it from them and my husband.

    I make this recipe all the time. I followed the recipe exactly. But I've also used sausage. I've added green chilis and onions. I've used regular eggs. Always is a big hit and I never have any left.

    What would the equivalent be for real eggs instead of 1 cup egg substitute?

    this is a very tasty breakfast dish. but be sure that you plan ahead, because you have to do a little prep before you bake it.
