A great alternative to the omlette. On phase 1 I often fear I'm going to turn into one! I'm going to make some right now so I can hit the ground running tomorrow. Thanks.

I've done this with just the eggs and canadian bacon, it's nice to put in the oven while I'm getting ready for work.

I loved this recipe! It was really good! Something different for breakfast. I also sprinkled a little cheese on mine after I pulled them out of the oven. Also I bet adding mushrooms would be soooo good!

I love this recipe. I changed out a few items such as instead of eggs I used egg beaters I will probably try egg whites too. Instead of Canadian bacon I also switched that for turkey ham.

These were ok, but I modified alot as I like scrambled eggs better and used onions instead of shallots. It would not be bad with some cheese either. It is definitely a nice change. I used sliced turkey ham as well.
