    Make sure the egg is smooth and whisked by it's self and there will be no chunks.  -  27 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this right after school just for fun and it was very quick and easy. I also used fat-free milk so it had fewer calories and it was still good.  -  03 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
