"Good! I laughed at the reviewers complaining this has too many eggs. It's a Potato EGG bake. Sheesh. 8 servings, less than 14 eggs (just the whites of some) I see no issue here. I have to admit I did just use 10 whole eggs in my version. Otherwise made as written. Thanks for a good recipe. Our chickens are laying like crazy right now, and this is a good way to use lots of eggs up."

"these are really nothing new to me, because when I get a taste for something like this I usually throw in what I have on hand for my breakfast and then have left overs for a few days."

"I'll cut it in half because it's just the 2 of us. And I'll use 6 whole eggs. I'd hate to waste the yolks of the extra eggs. Maybe I'll add meat, but this is a great lent dish. It sounds great!!!"

"This recipe was great. I swapped out fresh ingredients for frozen and dried, and used a few less potatoes ( a personal preference. ) The reviews I read about using to many eggs. This recipe serves 8, that makes it less than one whole egg and one egg white per serving. The same as I would use for an omelet."

"Very easy, simple, and yummy supper. My family enjoyed this a lot and it was perfect for a last minute dinner. I skipped the broccoli and green onions and red pepper because I had none and used a regular onion instead. I also sprinkled on some crushed red pepper flakes. I eliminated the egg whites and just used 6 eggs which was fine and subbed ricotta for the cottage cheese. Overall, very good and colorful- might be lacking a little something that would help it stand apart from other casseroles but don't let that persuade you not to try this recipe."

"yes, about the eggs - if you have a problem with whole eggs (ie the yolks - which is the part of the egg containing the fat and cholesterol), use egg whites and/or egg substitute. The veggies in this dish along with the high quality protein make for a very healthy breakfast."

"all the other things make up for the eggs, besides that is great protein. There are some that have a lot more eggs to help thicken it. as others have said that is less than 2 per person. i also agree add a meat to it there is cooked bacon, and cooked sausage crumbles that would also be good. STOP on the egg debate they agree they are good for you."

"As far as I can tell, the equivalent for a whole egg is two egg whites. If you counted two eggs equal in nutrition to a whole egg (which is not the case), it would be ten eggs. Even if a full 14 eggs were used for 8 servings, that's less than two eggs person... not unusual when eating eggs."

"This turned out very nice! I am not sure what all of the concern is about the eggs since the recipe only calls for 6 whole eggs (egg whites pose no health problems) and the recipe uses less than 1 egg per serving. It had great flavor and I would definitely make this again."
