      Tried these this morning and they were very good. My DW says this recipe is a keeper. I had 2 eggs, my DW had 1. Her comment: "The one egg satisified me without leaving me overstuffed." This will become a 'several times a month' recipe'. Substitutions used: frozen turkey sauage links (thawed and diced them) and canned mushrooms. Omitted the salt and red pepper flakes.
