      Excellent! Made one batch with fresh basil and they were to die for, if you like basil. Made another batch plain, and everyone loved them. Made a third batch to be used in taquitos along with sausage, potato, and cheese. Best taquitos ever! I love this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

      This was real good. I love the cheesy flavor. I didn't add the basil. Next time i think i will mix the cream cheese in the eggs before scrambling. yum

      I threw this together for supper tonight, without seeing the recipe. For one (large) serve I melted a little butter in a skillet over medium heat and tossed in three free-range eggs, a couple of slurps of low-fat milk, around ten fresh basil leaves, a mini tub of lite cream cheese, one chopped vine-ripened tomato, sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, blended everything together and stirred from time to time until it was cooked to my liking. I had it on freshly buttered whole-grain toast. Delicious!
