      I made the recipe exactly as printed, except I substituted green onions for the scallions and I did not have fresh parsley to add. My husband and I agreed that there seems to be too little custard for the amount of vegetables called for in this recipe. The vegetables filled to the brim of a 9x9 pan. Also, after cooking it for the stated amount of time, the vegetables still seemed raw. It reminded us of "raw hash browns." We ate it anyway, so we wouldn't waste food, but we probably won't make this again.
