    Really simple to make, and extremely yummy as well! I added a bit more butter as my family are dairy fiends, otherwise followed the recipe as written. Will make again.  -  25 Dec 2013


    This is good but much better with ham frozen green peas cream parmesan cheese and garlic. Also a great substitute for the ham is sliced sweet or hot Italian sausage.  -  31 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I actually cooked the eggs, as the recipe says to do (on low heat so they stay soft, but are still COOKED), and the results were wonderful! Great recipe!  -  30 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
