"This recipe is a long-time family favorite! Although it tastes great when prepared as written, I sometimes like to add ham or bacon."

"Delicious! Made as is w/out marjoram since I didn't have any on hand. I thought this was going to taste bland, but it was so tasty and delicious. The basil is definitely a must!"

"To be honest this didn't seem like it'd world but it not only worked it knocked it out of the park! I did add one extra egg and took ReldaJ's mushroom idea. I made it about an hour before a breakfast potluck and it was universally loved. Thanks TOH and community!"

"I am a great Zucchini lover, expecially if they are young and tender then you don't need to peel them. I did 2 1/2 cups of zucchini and 1/2 cup fresh musrooms."
