    This recipe is a real hit with my moms from my Better Beginnings Class (pregnant and new moms) - as it is a late morning class; this recipe fits right in. All love it and I especially love it as it is easy and the prep time is well within my hour limit!

    This was wonderful. I used spinish rather than mushrooms and canadean bacon rather than sausage and it turned out wonderful.
