"Really easy. I left the salt out completely which dropped the sodium a lot. We aren't fans of baked eggs as "whole eggs" so I did beat them before I poured them over the veggies. I baked 20 minutes with the whole eggs I had beaten but only 15 min. when I tired it with Eggbeaters. Works great with Eggbeaters too if you need less cholesterol."
