    Southern Polar Bear's Note:

    I love finding and trying new recipes on Recipezaar. Unfortunately, some of the old family favorites tend to get "temporarily forgotten and misplaced" - like this one! This is from Chef Joe Caruso of Caruso's Italian Ristorante (with a few slight modifications).

      I used regular milk with a thickener of corn starch. Less calories than the heavy cream. I also used turkey backon vs the bacon and as well only used 3 eggs. Not much difference - just as rich a taste and a lighter cooking meal. This is a great meal.

      I didn't know what to expect. I've never tried anything like this before Southern Polar Bear. It was amazing, it is definitely a 5* meal with amazing textures and flavours, light & fluffy, rich & creamy. The chicken & shrimp, were tender and juicy. I'm looking forward to breakfast tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.
